Smart Steps to Make Home Shifting Easier
It' s time to move to your new home – no matter what the reason – be it growing family, change in job or simply upgrading your home. Being an elder family member, you need to play an important role while packing, moving and unpacking your boxes in your dream home. There are tons of logistics to think about before and after moving day as you will have to take care of every minute thing.
If you are also going to move to your dream home and looking for advice – here are few things that will help you sail through move and make your new abode feel like home in no time without unpacking all the boxes.
Start Preparing Before Time
Settling down in your new home begins at your old home. Think about all the things that make your home run smoothly everyday and check these off your list so you need not to struggle to function effortlessly after the move such as kitchen utensils, duplicate keys of home, bed covers and quilts to spend your first night.
Devise a Moving Day Plan
Big day is not just when you get married but it is also the day when you move into your new home – people rushing, boxes packing, movers’ vehicles and a bouncing toddler to keep an eye on. Take a break before the big day but make a plan of who will do what and assign work to everyone. And do not forget to make a back-up plan in case if anything does not go according to plan.
Label Your Moving Boxes
You must clearly label your boxes including the content and the room – they should go in such as "kitchen utensils", "dishes", "clothes", "bed sheets" and so on. That small effort will prove to be a big payoff, when you are moving and unpacking in your new home. You will know where to put these boxes in your new home, which means you will not have to haul these boxes again to find out what is in it. If you are moving to a bigger home, make sure you mention things on the boxes accordingly along with specific information that will help you distinguish the boxes.
Pack a Bag of Utensils
You might think right now that there is nothing worse than being totally exhausted from moving all day but there is something that will make you more exhausted that is wading through the huge pile of boxes to find an essential item for your family member. Make sure to pack each family member' s clothes, toiletries and other essentials such as medicines, and toys to get through the first few days after move.
