If you missed our blog post with the first three points, check them out! Because moving is such a big life transition, we felt that our tips couldn’t be contained into a single post so here are three more tips to make your moving day/week a breeze.
- Put ‘em Together – The easiest way locate things post-move is if you keep similar items together. Instead of having three books in the living room boxes and twelve in your bedroom box, make a book box and put them together. Unpacking will be much simpler when things are organized.
- Overestimate your box needs – We tend to think that we don’t have “that much” stuff in our homes, that is until we need to pack everything for a move. Don’t get caught in the days leading up to your move scrounging around the local supermarkets for spare boxes or cramming everything imaginable into the already overstuffed boxes.
- Clean out the Fridge – Try to make your last grocery trip two weeks before the move, this will force you to use up as much of your food as possible making moving a bit lighter and who knows you may find something you forgot you had in the freezer (like extra cookie dough). This is especially prevalent if you are moving a long distance as some food will not survive a longer journey (and throwing out food would be a waste of money).
We hope you’re feeling a bit more prepared for your next move. If you’re thinking of moving, and haven’t purchased anything yet, check out some of our North Ridge Homes for Sale.
