Tips To Moving To A New Town With Less Stress And More Fun



Moving can be a stressful time for anyone, whether you are moving to keep your job, get a better job, move away from a bad situation or simply make a change. There are many ways you can make moving easier and have fun while you do it. Take a look at these key points in successful moving:

Make a list and organize each task.
Take an inventory of all the things you need to do as you think of them. Keeping track of what needs to be done and what has been done can save you time and energy in an already daunting task. The best way to ensure things are organized during moving is to do a room by room check and mark off as you pack and clean. Organize your stuff in the order that you will need them last in the place you are staying and first in the place you are going to. For example, you don't want to pack up your bedding and toothbrush if you plan on staying another night in your old place. This is also true if you wish to unpack your clothing and toiletries at the new place first to get a jump on the day. Sifting through boxes to find the things you need can be time-consuming and frustrating causing more stress rather than creating a relaxing move. Bekins Moving Solutions has a great guide on how to start over in a new place.

Label everything and clean as you go.
Have you ever seen someone move with unlabelled boxes, garbage bags and totes filled at the last second? It has got to be one of the most unorganized ways to move from one place to another creating chaos and headaches when it comes time to unpack. Label each box with contents and room placement to ensure you can find exactly what you need when the time comes. As you complete a room clean it up a bit to make the major cleanup go by quick and painless. You can save the floors, walls, and windows for the very end but if you want to shorten the clean remove the trash and sweep up large messes to get a headstart.


Research local restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and other important stores and hangouts.
Find out what is located around you before you move to know how far you need to travel for necessities. Knowing there is a great grocery store around the corner can save you a trip and help you maintain your sanity when your elbow deep in boxes. Looking to go for a drink in a nice quiet bar after unpacking for hours, luckily for you, you took the time to research what is located where and what the ambience is like there.  Read reviews to find the places that will suit you rather than just going in on a whim, your time is precious so don't waste it nasty dives or run-down shops.

Join groups, get to know your neighbours and colleagues.
The locals will know better than anyone where to hang out and places to avoid. Having friends in a new town can help you get settled faster to learn more and grow as an individual. If you have moved on your own, have no family close by and need to connect with people take it slow and be cautious. Not every friendly face has the best intentions for you and it is always a good idea to watch your back. Tell people where you plan on going if you go out alone, stay in contact with friends and family on social media. Missing people are noticed regularly by family and friends who cannot connect with them on social platforms or on their cell phones. Go out and have fun but do it in a safe way. JS Dolls can ensure you have companionship in the safest way possible.

I love love love her idea on how to make indoor snowballs with egg cartons. I am definitely going to have to try that with my kiddos since my smallest one has decided that it has to snow for Christmas. Poor baby doesn't know snow is hard to come by in Alabama :( For my guest post I wanted to share a little DIY with you guys that involves duct tape! A few months ago my daughter's little chair that goes with her table she sits at every day tore and she made it worse by pulling all of the stuffing out of the seat! What started out as a quick fix turned into a great idea. She loved her seat so much that she has now decided that her table has look cool too so being the smarty pants that she is, she tore her table!

3 HOME IMPROVEMENT TO MAKE BEFORE MOVING IN

While shifting to your dream house, you may face a mountain of pre-move work, including downsizing, packing, hiring moving trucks, and other help. When you already have a list full of tasks, home improvements for the new house might be the last thing. However, handling the new house renovation before moving in is convenient for you in many ways. Planning home improvement is exciting and stressful both. If you are moving to a house that is not entirely ready, you have massive things to do. To make things smooth, create a list based on priorities. If you are shifting to a freshly build house, you do not need to make a lot of renovation, though you can add a little personal touch to it. When you make house changes before moving in, you can save your floor and furniture from paint spills. You will have an open space to plan the house interior. You can protect yourself and your family from hazardous odors and dust. There are several home improvements like removing popcorn ceil
