Moving to a new home can be an enormous task that is exciting but also induces the desire to rip out all of your hair. It is a great way to purge your belongings and get rid of things you don’t need or use, but certain aspects of moving require significant time and effort. Here are some tips that we think will help make the transition to your new Saskatoon home super easy.
- Colour code your labels – If people are helping you move, this tip is a necessity. It works best with coloured stickers or markers. Each room is assigned a colour, then as the boxes and bags are unloaded your helpers will know where things are going so that your kitchen utensils don’t end up in the bathroom. Just make sure you have legends posted around the house and if you’re super organized coloured paper on each door/wall.
- Don’t procrastinate – The biggest stress of moving is when it’s two days before moving day and you still haven’t touched the downstairs closet or the kitchen. Pack as much as you can as early as you can, so the final days leading up to the move can be dedicated to cleaning and packing those essential items.
- Pack an essentials bag – Nothing is worse than finally being moved in to your new home and having to tear open every box to find your pajamas or toothbrush. Packing an overnight bag with clothing, bathroom essentials, and other items you know you will need the first few days will help keep the stress levels at a minimum.
