Make Moving Easier
Tips for Moving into Your New Home
Moving into a new home is an exciting time for anyone, but it can also be equally as stressful. At Waste Solutions 123, we often get orders from new home owners who are starting to move into their first home, along the way we’ve learned a few tips on what to do when moving into your new home.
Don’t Buy Everything at Once
Try to keep in mind while moving into your new home, that you do not need to buy everything at once. Don’t go crazy buying decorations, throw blankets, pillows etc. until you see what goes together. Decorating should be a fun part of moving in so take your time doing it! Remember good things come from planning and not rushing through, while you may want to have everything ready the minute you get the keys, take a step back. Make a list of things you want and what you need, then choose items based off their design, does the couch match your decor, is this wall color going to go with your furniture? Take your time, you’ll be glad you do!
Do a Deep Cleaning
One of the most important tips for moving into your new home, is to clean the entire house before moving any furniture in. Once you’ve moved in it’ll be hard to clean and disinfect around all of your furniture and things. You should always do a deep clean when moving into a home, you don’t want to be living with someone else’s dirt and germs. Check air vents, wipe down the windows and light fixtures, disinfect the appliances and bathrooms, and consider deep cleaning any carpets that you may have.
Take Photos Before
Taking some pictures of your home before your stuff is in there is a good idea if you are planning to rent. It may be difficult to remember how things were before you took over, these photos can also be used as proof if you need to prove something to your landlord. If you aren’t renting you can still take pictures to have something to look back on, having a little before and after of your first home is something you may want to make a memory of.
Keep Your Fridge Stocked
When moving into a new home, you’re most likely going to be getting some help. Whether you have family or friends helping bring boxes in, people delivering furniture, or even workers doing some renovations, it’s always nice to have some water and drinks handy. No one will expect to be fed, but it’s nice to offer some pizza or cold drinks in exchange for their help.
Keep Clothes in Drawers
Boxing up clothes and items can get confusing, we suggest labeling each box with what’s inside and where they should go. It can turn into a huge headache opening every box to see what’s inside and then moving it to the proper room. You can easily avoid this problem by keeping your clothing in the dresser drawers while moving, cutting down on some packing and unpacking. For clothes that are hanging on hangers, don’t even take them off, throw them right into a box and label it accordingly. No one wants to waste time sorting through boxes of old sweaters when they’re so many more important things to do.
Take time to enjoy this milestone in your life and get excited about your new home! Don’t let the stress of moving get to you, take your time and take these tips into consideration when moving into your new home. Remember when moving in and out you may find yourself with some old junk you want to get rid of, or your new home may even have some things left over you want to toss before getting in there.
