Start by packing things you don’t use on a day-to-day basis and save everyday items for last.
STOCK UP ON LOCALS
Or seek out a reusable box service like Alienbox, http://www.alienbox.com. A one stop place for all your moving supplies.
Your life will be much easier if there is a method to your madness…er…packing.
Once you arrive in your new home, knowing what items are where will help you determine where to start. A safe bet is to label by room.
CHANGE YOUR ADDRESS
Don’t forget to change your address on any necessary documents such as your driver’s license, credit cards, or with the post office.
Make sure to cancel all services at your old home and restart them at your new one.
PERFORM A WALK THROUGH
Do a walk through of your old house to make sure you didn’t forget anything.
CHECK OUT YOUR NEW HOME
Your orientation with the builder’s representative provides you an opportunity to learn about your home and how to care and maintain it.
EXPLORE YOUR NEW CITY
Now comes the fun part. Explore what your new city or neighborhood has to offer and scope out closest grocery store, doctor’s office, and other essential places.
Yes, moving can be stressful but don’t let the chaos overcome you. Moving into a new home is an exciting time, so take a moment to relish in your new adventure.
