So, you have finally bought your dream home but now you have to endure the stressful part… moving.
There is stuff everywhere, boxes piled up, and you can’t remember where you put your phone charger, we know the feeling. Moving is stressful, there is no escaping that but there are a few ways to make the process a little less stressful. Check out our top tips below…
Sounds obvious right, but it is so easy to leave things last minute and moving house is something that should not be left until the last minute. Even if you just do one thing each day, start as early as possible. Start by creating a plan and mapping out everything that needs to be done and when. Then you can create a to-do list in order of priority, and it’s always fun to tick things off a to-do list.
Label everything. Even if you think you will remember what is in a box, label it. Labelling everything will make it much easier when it comes to unpacking everything in your new home, but it will also make packing easier.
Declutter As You Go
The best thing about moving into a new home is being able to start fresh. Instead of taking that bag of clothing hangers that you know you will never use, or a draw full of bits and bobs, declutter. Throw away all of the things you are saving because you think you might need them in the future. This is your chance to start fresh, so only take the things that you need or really want.
Organise Your Wires
It might be tempting to just throw all of your wires into a box as they are, but you should probably label them. Keep your wires separate and put them into their own little bags. For example, all of the wires that go into the TV, put them together in a small bag and label them. Then take all of those little bags and put them in one big box.
Keep Your Essentials Separate
Everything is scheduled to be moved and it all seems to be going to plan but just in case it doesn’t, it’s probably best to have your essentials handy. Create a box where you can house your essentials and anything else you might want when you first get to your new home. Maybe you want to light a candle on your first night, pack it with your essentials so you don’t have to spend time rummaging through boxes upon boxes of things. Don’t forget to pack a toothbrush and a pair of pyjamas in that box.
