You’ve secured your new home in St George and are filled to the brim with excitement. You get to start over fresh, decorate from scratch and soon enough start making new memories. But what about the move? This is where the stressful part comes in, right? Not necessarily. Moving doesn’t have to be stressful, not if you do it right. You can, in fact, enjoy a rather relaxed move and enjoy all the things that many find tedious.
You have probably looked around your current home that will in a matter of weeks be your old home. You’ve never realized it before, but you have a lot more things than you had imagined, and you can’t even remember where some of them came from. Then you open that one drawer that hasn’t seen the light of day in so long and you start to get discouraged, but you shouldn’t. With the right preparation and the right mindset, your packing will be as easy as ever. You can also visit our Parramatta branch at Residential & Commercial Removals for services in that area.
So where do you start and how?
Start by ridding yourself of clutter. However, don’t try to tackle it all at once. Set a couple of hours aside which you dedicate to getting all those things you will never need into the trash can. Blast the music and turn it into a little party. All the scraps of paper and random receipts, rid yourself of them all. And when that’s all done, and you have got to tackle the big stuff. In that mix, there will be some things that you won’t want to carry with you to your new home, but you also can’t bare to just throw in the trash and forget about. A garage sale is just what you need. Get a group of friends together to help you arrange things and start posting ads. On the designated day, you’ll be happy all your old belongings make new friends who will happily give them a new, loving home.
The next thing you will need to do is to make a list. Outline all the things you need to get done in the coming weeks. This may include calling your friends and having a proper goodbye, or cancelling certain services that you won’t be needing any more as you are moving. You’ll also need to make yourself a schedule of when you want to get the packing done, and things that you can’t forget to pack. Having your lists in a notebook will ensure that they don’t get lost as easily as bits and pieces of paper. Be sure to write down all the things that you need to remember, because, during this time, you’ll have so much going on, and forgetting things can happen very easily.
Pack your boxes. Start doing this early. Waiting until the last minute will only cause you to become stressed out and unmotivated. Pack away all the winter clothing if its summer, all the summer clothing if its winter, as you won’t be wearing them for now. Pick out couple pairs of shoes that you’ll be wearing in the next few weeks and pack away all the others. Books, papers and folders can also be packed away in advance.
Clean. Once you have gotten the keys to your new home, take a day out to the driver over there and get some cleaning done. You’ll be a lot happier knowing that this isn’t something that you’ll have to tackle on your first day in your new home, as you would have already done it.
