A new home in a new year equals a fresh start. If you’re planning to move to a new house in 2020, you can make the most of it by sticking to a few resolutions. Read on as elderly moving services company Busy Buddies shares some tips.
Moving to a new home opens you up to many new opportunities, from meeting new friends to discovering new places and hobbies. When planning your move, we recommend sticking to these resolutions to ensure the process is as smooth and successful as possible:
As you move, you’re creating an opportunity to change your past behaviors. One thing many homeowners can do much better with is recycling. Declutter your home and donate or recycle the things that you no longer need. If you need new items for your home, consider buying secondhand to save money and resources.
2. Use Old Boxes
Rather than purchasing a bunch of new boxes for your move, make it a point to hang onto old ones in the months leading up to your move. If you or a friend or family member works in an office, see if there are any boxes or other moving supplies there you could use.
3. Deal With Pre-Moving Stress
Thinking about all the things you need to do before moving can be overwhelming. You may need to register your car in a new state, change your bank and forward your mail to your new address. Give yourself plenty of time before your move to take care of these administrative tasks so you won’t feel rushed.
4. Deal With Post-Moving Stress
Looking at all the unopened boxes in your new home can be very stressful. Don’t worry though–you have all the time in the world to unpack. Take your time and recruit friends and family to help you if you’re feeling worn down.
