Buying a new custom home is an exciting experience. However, moving all your belongings from one house to another can be challenging and overwhelming. Staying organized is not easy, but moving into a new home is a great way to start fresh and create an organized environment. Here are some easy tips to help you get organized for your big move.
It is easy to accumulate a lot of stuff in your old home that you have not used in a long time. Moving is an excellent opportunity to purge all of the old stuff that has been cluttering your home. The key is to make sure that everything you own is something you genuinely want. Ask yourself: “Do I need it, do I use it, and do I have a place for it?” If it does not have a function in your new custom home, you should get rid of it. It is also a good idea to sell or donate your unwanted items so they do not go to waste.
Once you have ensured that you only packed essential items and everything has gone into boxes, what do you do next? It can be easy to forget where you put something once everything gets packed away. Thus, it is a good idea to have a packing system for you and your family. Start by labeling boxes by room. You could also create a legend and designating a color for each room. That way, they will end up in the right spot regardless of who is helping you carry boxes into your new home. This makes unpacking and organizing much more manageable.
Depending on the size of your home and the number of boxes your bringing with you, hiring a moving company may be beneficial. Figure out which items you can transport in your own vehicles and which larger, heavier items you will need help moving. For example, if you only have a smaller car, you will need assistance moving your appliances, such as the washer and dryer. Be sure to research moving companies and ask around for recommendations.
Now that you have packed up your belongings and everything is ready to go, it is time to get your new custom home organized. Do not make the mistake of arbitrarily putting things anywhere. Take the time to think about how you use your stuff and the best place for things to live. Designate a permanent home for each item so nothing will get misplaced.
