Moving can be the most stressful part of buying a new home. Keystone Homes wants to make sure that moving is a breeze, so we are here to give you some tips and tricks to make the moving process a cinch. Hopefully if you follow these five tips, the most stressful moment of buying a new home will be figuring out which paint color you like best!
Make a list…or two: Staying organized throughout the moving process is crucial to remaining stress-free. Lists can come in handy in multiple ways. Number your moving boxes, and keep a detailed inventory of what exactly is inside each box. You can also make lists of which boxes go in which rooms, lists of what you need to buy for the big day or just lists of questions you have for your movers or real estate agent.
Start early: It’s never too early to start packing. There is always more to pack than you think, and if you don’t give yourself enough time, you’ll end up throwing everything in random boxes at the last minute.
Save space: Use towels, pillows and t-shirts as extra padding around your fragile items. These items can be put to good use in the packing process, and they will help save you space.
Label it: If you’re taking apart furniture with small pieces, be sure to group those items together and label them. You should also label electronic cords, which should be neatly wrapped. This will save you time and aggravation when you go to unpack.
Delegate: If you’re moving with another person or your whole family, delegate different moving tasks to different people. Make it fun for the kids by rewarding them for helping you label boxes, finding specific items to go in each box or for double checking a room to see if you missed anything.
