“Moving is easy,” said no one, ever.
But what can you do to make it at least a little simpler? This guide contains 15 moving tips that will help you get through the big day – and beyond – without stressing too much.
6 Tips to Make Your Move to DC Ranch a LOT Easier
Check out these 15 moving tips that may make your move a lot easier:
- Bring an overnight bag
- Use a clear plastic bin for important items
- Label boxes by room
- Prep your new house before moving day
- Photograph the backs of your electronics
- Vacuum-seal seasonal clothing and blankets
Here’s a closer look at each.
Tip #1 to Make Moving to DC Ranch Easier: Bring an Overnight Bag
Pack an overnight bag with all the things you’ll need right away in your new home, such as pajamas and a change of clothes, medications, toiletries and other essentials.
Tip #2 to Make Moving to DC Ranch Easier: Use a Clear Plastic Bin for Important Items
Keep your important must-have items corralled and easy to manage by packing them in a clear plastic bin before moving day. That way, you’ll be able to see what’s inside. Consider adding a roll of paper towel and some cleaning supplies, paper plates, and other items you’ll need soon after moving in (but that don’t belong in your overnight bag with your clothes).
Pro Tip: Put your coffee and a couple of mugs in the clear bin so you have easy access the morning after you move in.
Tip #3 to Make Moving to DC Ranch Easier: Label Boxes by Room
Label every box according to which room it belongs in; that way, everything can go right to its new home once you arrive at your destination. You’ll save yourself a lot of work lugging boxes back and forth when you start to unpack!
Tip #4 to Make Moving to DC Ranch Easier: Prep Your New House Before Moving Day
Visit your new home before you move in to pre-clean (or to let a cleaning company in), hang a shower curtain and bring over some essentials (like a spare coffee pot).
Tip #5 to Make Moving to DC Ranch Easier: Photograph the Backs of Your Electronics
Before your movers (or you) pull out all the cords on your electronics, take photos of how everything should look. It’ll be easier to put it all back together properly if you have a ready-made diagram.
Tip #6 to Make Moving to DC Ranch Easier: Vacuum-Seal Seasonal Clothing and Blankets
Vacuum-seal your off-season clothing and blankets. When you arrive at your new home, you can slide them right into storage and won’t have to worry about reorganizing everything.
