Moving house is chaotic, imagine packing all your lifelong belongings in boxes. After that, take them to another house where you have to get them out of the boxes and arrange the house. It will be an exhausting week.
To make tasks easier and you can take a well-deserved rest at night follow the tips below:
Prepare what you will pack
Before packing for a move from one house to another, ask for everything you’re packing. Do you need it, use it, like it? If you have not used that item or brought it out of the box in 6 months, do not take it!
Make an Inventory
One of the best tips when moving is to mark each box to pack and keep a list of everything you are going to load in the moving truck and cars. Everything out of your house should be on the list and make sure everything that comes to your new home is what you’re expecting.
Set your priorities
Each person does tasks. Differently, some do everything in one day, and others are taking things slowly. Whatever method you do, separate the boxes and bags according to their priorities. Remember to bring things such as bath, essential items, and valuables with you.
Unpack for one room at a time
Unpack room by room. Start from the kitchen, then the living room and so on. Your house will gradually take shape, and you will feel less overwhelmed. If you take it all at once, and then you try to order it you will feel overwhelmed with a lot of mess.
Make a to-do list
Just as you have your inventory for your things, make a list of outstanding tasks in your new house. This will make do things in order. You will also complete tasks based on their priorities such as calling the locksmith, gardener, change a light bulb, painting a room, etc.
Do not buy new things yet
A new space needs new things and decorations. However, don’t buy things impulsively. Wait for all your things to arrive and unpacked before buying something new.
Dispose of unnecessary boxes
Once you’ve removed everything from the boxes, throw them or give them away. Nothing overwhelms much as having accumulated waste in your new space.
Ask for help
The moving day is much less stressful and much more fun if you are accompanied by your friends or people who make you laugh. Ask for help and invite them for dinner at the end of the day, it will be much lighter.
