Don’t Take Absolutely Everything With You
Think about what you really want to take with you. Chances are, the charm that some of your old items once had no longer stands. You don’t have to transfer everything you own into you new home. Think carefully about what you really want there and only take your absolute favorite things. You can donate your old things or sell them to make some extra cash. You’ll save money and time when moving and unpacking this way, too.
Label Your Boxes So You Can Unpack Better
Carefully label your boxes and you’ll be able to unpack smarter. Label what’s in each box and the room it should go in. You’ll be glad you did this when it comes to putting everything away.
Hire Professionals To Help You With The Move
You may have already sorted this out, you may not. Hire professionals to help you with the move and you’ll have peace of mind. Your things should arrive on time and with no damages – which isn’t always something you can guarantee if you call in a favor from friends. Instead, look at hiring a company like Two men and a truck. Read reviews and testimonials and make sure they are right for you. You can’t put a price on your items arriving safely.
Unpack The Important Things First
Unpack the most important things first. For instance, put your bed in place and make it with your favorite bedspread so that you can look forward to getting in it after a long day of unpacking. Things like art can come last, as you will want to get to know the house a little first before hanging your images.
Make It Smell Nice
Making your house smell nice is a must and will instantly make you feel at ease. You can do this by using things like aromatherapy, which is also great for easing anxiety. However, don’t be afraid to bake some muffins or bread. The home will fill with a comforting smell and this act alone can make a place feel more like home.
Candles are perfect for creating a cosy atmosphere and making you feel more relaxed.
Create New, Happy Experiences
Make new, happy experiences early on too. Invite people over if your friends and family don’t live too far away. If they do, meet new people and ask them to come for your house warming. Alternatively, it’s really easy to just play music you love and have fun cleaning/unpacking!
