MOVING TIP #22 – CREATE A STORAGE SPACE IN THE NEW HOUSE
If you are taking your time to unpack, rather than allocating colours for each room and spreading out the boxes, why not allocate one room that can house all boxes so that you can unpack at your leisure?
That way you don’t have to sit and look at boxes wherever you go – there’s nothing less relaxing!
Work out which way will be the least stressful for you, given the time you have etc…
MOVING TIP #23 – FAMILIARISE YOURSELF WITH YOUR NEW HOME ASAP
Whether the previous owners of your new house give you a welcome pack or not, it’s worth making the time to familiarise yourself with your new house asap.
You don’t want to have a power cut on the first night and not know where the trip switch is – or am alarm goes off without you knowing how to turn it off etc…
MOVING TIP #24 – CHANGE THE LOCKS
This often goes missed, but changing the locks on your new house is a really good idea. After all – who knows who has a set of keys?
Better to be safe I always say…
MOVING TIP #25 – RELAX!
My husband and I have a tradition when moving house.
We open a bottle of champagne and get fish and chips for tea.
It’s the perfect end to a very long and tiring day – and really easy too!
Whatever makes you relax and feel at home – do it! – you deserve to enjoy your first night in your new home.
We got there!
