6 Tips to Make Moving Easier

So every little detail is finally completed and all you have left to do is move into your new home! The moving process can be incredibly stressful, but you shouldn't let it be. Here are 6 tips on how to make moving easier (thanks to realtormag.realtor.org):

  1. Document all of your cords: The is the #1 thing that most people don't think about when moving. You may think you'll remember exactly which cords went to the TV and which went to the DVD player, but chances are, you won't. Put a little bit of tape around each wire and label what it goes to!
  2. Update your address: In the midst of moving, this one may seem to pass you by fairly easily. Before you're completely overwhelmed with unpacking, work on changing your address on all of your forms (or the important ones first, at least).
  3. Create a pet plan: Do you really want an excited puppy running around your new house all day? Probably not. Arrange to have someone pet sit in another location! If that's not an option for you, maybe bring someone along who will keep your pet company while you're moving.
  4. Recruit some help: If you decide to save some money and not use a mover, make sure to ask some friends or family if they can help you out! You'll be thankful that you did
  5. Pack a "first night in the new house" box: You will absolutely not want to be scrambling through a hundred different boxes the night of your move-in for your toothbrush and pajamas. Pack a small box that will have your bedtime essentials as well as a towel and change of clothes for the next day.
  6. Strategize your layout: Mark your boxes by either room or category. This way, as your moving boxes into your home, you'll know exactly where to put them so you won't have a stack of unmarked boxes by the front door or your kitchen utensils in your bedroom.
