Moving into a new house? Take a moment...
Moving into a new house could be a whirlwind of excitement and nerves! A decision that brings you extreme happiness, but also adds a tinge of confusion. Are you completely ready? Have you got all the essentials together? Is your transport and settling plan in place? These are few pointers that you need to consider before moving into your new house. Here’s a walkthrough on all the essentials your checklist needs to have: –
Consider moving in as a good reason to weed out all the things that you haven’t used for years, which is languishing somewhere inside your house. Getting trapped in the mindset of ‘could be a future use’, could cost your precious time and money, and may also impact the freshness and vibe of your new house.
Prioritize your packing, starting with the things that you seldom use and label them accordingly. This could help you save precious unpacking time and get you going before you’re finished with unloading and settling down.
If you’re going to use a moving company, get your estimates as soon as you can. The slots could fill up quickly, considering how everyone is clamoring for the same spot either at the beginning or at the end of the month.
Start saving up on newspapers, let the hoarder in you come alive! These could be used for packaging. Also, be sure to procure small boxes against big ones, this helps to avoid heavy lifting.
Don’t buy perishables if your moving date is near. Packing a fridge full of food could leave you in the danger zone. Be sure to empty out your fridge before transporting it to your new house.
Plan an email blast to all your friends, relatives and colleagues, be sure to intimate your bank and post office about the change of address.
Moving into a new house could be quite stressful for your kids, moving away from friends and the locality could leave an impact on them. Take a stage by stage approach in informing them about the relocation. This could help them get prepared mentally and keep them reassured.
Once you have this checklist implemented, you are good to go
