So the good news is that you have found the perfect new place! Now the not-so-fun part is planning for the move and we’ve all been there…..it takes longer than you think it will to pack up and you have more stuff than you realized! It’s a universal truth of moving Here are some tips to help make the process simpler:
Here is a great article from Style at Home magazine and we especially like Tip# 13 that recommends packing a "Moving Day Kit" with all of the essentials that you will want quick and easy access to without having to hunt!
Also some great additional tips here from Buzz Feed….we love the idea of taking a photo of the back of your electronics so it’s easier to hook them up in the new space!
Here are a couple of our tips to help out with the process as well….
- If you are moving from a larger to smaller space, when you are packing up your kitchen tools, dishes, glasses and serving pieces, it’s helpful to separate out the items you will use most often from those you would still like access to occasionally but you may not have room to store in your new kitchen space. Those boxes can be set aside and dealt with later rather than having to filter through them when you are unpacking and just trying to get settled! If the boxes are labelled in detail you will always know where to find those martini glasses you may want for your housewarming party! Cheers to that!
- We recommend FrogBox for their eco-friendly reusable and plastic moving boxes and even wardrobe boxes to make packing up your closet easier. You can rent them on a weekly basis and they even drop them off and pick them up when you’re done! http://frogbox.com/regina
- We also recommend the Express Address service to manage the changeover for all of your services and utilities…..one stop online and easy to use! https://www.expressaddress.com/s/index.htm
Happy Moving Day!
