Getting Ready To Make the Big Move to a New Home

Whether you have moved a dozen times, or this is your first big move, you know there will be a long list of things to buy, remember, and accomplish. Here are a few tips to help you stay on top of everything you can’t possibly remember.

1. Supplies
Purchase your moving supplies St Louis MO, as you need them rather than spending hundreds of dollars on items you aren’t sure you are going to use. Select your favorite size box and purchase a dozen. Don’t forget the bubble wrap, tape dispenser, labels, and wrapping paper.

2. Organize
Make a family game of organizing the house. This includes setting up boxes in the garage where items can easily be tossed that family members want to donate or discard. If you have little ones, you may want to make sure your children don’t take the game too literally!

3. Packing
Many professionals will tell you to clean before you pack, but the end result is that you will need to clean each room every time you spend the day packing. There is always something such as collected dust, discarded papers, and even hidden candy wrappers in children’s bedrooms. Don’t forget to clearly label each box for ease in identification in the new house.

4. Services
Remember to cancel all your delivery services, utilities, and service providers, such as lawn care. You will also need to change addresses on credit cards, at insurance agencies, and with subscription plans. Contact the services before you move and give them a start date. This can help ease your stress about forgetting someone.

Moving doesn’t have to be a dreadful time filled with anxiety and despair. If you begin early and take the time to enjoy yourself in the months before the move, you can keep your stress level under control – and you can probably remember everything you were worried about forgetting.
