The thought of living in a new home is exciting but the actual moving from one home to another with all the stuff is more like a nightmare to everyone. You spend days and nights in planning and packing up but when the day comes, you start to have a headache. It is your most stressful day of home buying and moving journey.
Here are few tips to help you to make the job of flipping homes less stressful:
Make a List- Before the day comes, you have to plan everything in advance. Make a list of not only the items but also the steps to your moving process. You can do only one big task in a day and moving is a pretty big task. So clear your schedule in advance so that you do not have the stress of other jobs on your head.
Be ready before the Movers Arrive- You must be ready with all the stuff packed when the movers arrive with their vans. Missing things and picking them up from here and there will be troublesome for you and frustrating for the movers as well. Make sure the important belongings are in secure place.
Throw away Useless Stuff- Let go of the nostalgia. You do not have to keep everything in your new home. Throw away the broken, useless and unimportant stuff. This clutter is going to create a problem when you unpack in your new home.
Have Everything Ready- When you start packing your stuff in the boxes, it would be really irritating to realize that you missed the tapes. So make a cool headed decision and think about all the stuff you need- Boxes, tapes, scissors, labels, etc.
Keep Essentials in a Separate Bag- It takes more time to unpack in the new home than to pack up and leave from the older one. You are going to need at least a week to settle in your new home. So put all the essential stuff in a separate suitcase to last till you have properly settled in.
Have Cash in Hand- You might run low on cash while living in your new home. So keep cash in hand ready. These will be needed to meet the unexpected cost of moving.
Be Ready to Make a New Plan- Things will not always go as you planned. So you need to be flexible. You might end up following a whole new moving plan. So do not be stubborn about your strategy.
