Transition to a New Home

You just purchased a house, now what?

The transition to a new home can be surprisingly challenging. There is so much to do, often in a very short amount of time. From filling out change-of-address forms to remembering turning on the utilities at your new location, or just packing in general.

Although transitioning to a new home is a significant change, it doesn’t have to be stressful. Check out our tips below!

Transition to a new home

Label

Label the contents of your boxes, as well as the room they will be placed in. This helps movers, family or friends to understand where to put the boxes after transitioning to the new home.

The process of unpacking will seem easier if you unpack by room. Try to label the side part of the boxes, instead of the top part. This way, even if they are piled, you can still recognize them.

Transition to a new home

Take advantage of garbage bags

Pillows, plush animals, and other soft items can be placed in heavy-duty, black garbage bags.

Afterwards, you can use the bags as cushioning inside your moving truck. To secure and keep your belongings clean, tie or tape them using double bags.

Make electronic adjustment easier

To help you remember where the wires go once you’ve settled into your new location, take a picture of how your electronics are connected.

Transition to a new home

Limit the use of boxes

Utilize all of your baskets, laundry bins, hampers, and luggage to reduce the number of boxes you use! Stuff them to the maximum. The wheeled suitcases can be used for heavier items like books.

Keep important documents with you

It’s better if you keep important documents with you and not with the movers. There will be a serious consequence if they get lost. Important documents might include birth certificates, school documents, financial documents, and other “important” papers.

Prepare a bag with the essentials

Once you get to your new house, you probably won’t have the energy to unpack your belongings. Therefore, you should have your essentials packed in a bag.

You can’t finish it all in one day, so go easy on yourself!
