[:en]Once you finally purchase your dream home, the next thing you have to think about is moving day. When it comes to moving all of your belongings and your family from one house to another, things can definitely get stressful. The good news is that there are actually some things you can do to reduce the stress of moving day.
Go through all of your belongings before you move. Consider donating unused or unwanted items to your local Goodwill. It is a great way to de-clutter while giving back to your local community and those in need.
If you are moving from an apartment complex, make sure no one else in the same complex is moving on the same day. Sharing elevators and hallways can be stressful enough but sharing them with others who are moving can be a nightmare.
Make sure you have some basic tools on hand on moving day. Having a couple of screw drivers, a box cutter and an Allen wrench is something that will come in handy.
If you have hired movers, keep pets and children out of the mover’s way while they are loading and unloading your things. It is actually best to have a friend or family member look after your kids and pets on moving day so you can be available to the movers at all times in case they have any questions.
One thing that stresses people out the most about moving is worrying about their valuables. Consider storing things like your wedding rings, passports and other important documents in a safety deposit box at your bank.
When you put these tips to use, moving into your dream home is sure to be easy and stress free. Buying a new home is supposed to be exciting so keep it simple, plan ahead and enjoy this next chapter in your life.[:]
