Tips for your move

Moving into a new apartment is exciting and nerve-wracking. You have to pack up your life, find a way to transport it all, and then unpack it in a new place. But the most difficult task of all might be figuring out how to prepare yourself for this task. To make it slightly easier, we’ve prepared a complete move in shopping list and some tips for you on how to start your move off on the right foot.

Tip 1

Ask friends and family for help

The first thing you want to do is ask friends and family to help you with moving. Obviously, it’s not going to be a one-person job. Ask your friends and family if they have the time and space to help you move heavy items from your old place to your new place. This will save you so much money, as hiring movers for an entire house would cost thousands of dollars! If none of them can help, there are always professional movers that can come in handy for a reasonable price.

Tip 2

Plan What You Should Buy for Your Move

All necessary items can be basically divided into three main categories on your new home shopping list:
- Boxes, lots of boxes - no need to elaborate on this one, I guess?
- Cleaning supplies: the house will always need a clean. You need to be able to wash your clothes, scrub floors, and more.
- Groceries: while listing all items needed for your move, don’t forget about the basics.Toilet paper, soap/shampoo, paper towels are important, but you have to eat something! Bonus tip: it may be difficult to cook for the first couple of days, so make sure to get some ready-made meals.

Tip 3

Expect to make more than one trip to the supermarket

The truth is, you’ll probably need more things than you think. You might not be able to fit it all in one trip and end up making two or more trips to the supermarket, depending on how much you’ve packed. Don’t forget to include some extra time in your moving time schedule.

One of the worst moving mistakes you should try to avoid is not packing up all your dishes, cookware, and utensils before you move. You might think that it's an easy thing to do and you won't really be using them for a while, but then when you're in the middle of unpacking and realize there are still some things left in the cupboard that need to be moved, you'll regret it. Make sure everything is packed up and checked off on your move in shopping list before you leave home so nothing is forgotten or broken.

Another one of the worst moving mistakes people make is underestimating how much space they will need in their new home. You never want to end up with too little room only because there was no way for you to see what your new space would look like beforehand. If this happens, it's not just inconvenient: it can also cause a lot of problems with your living situation as well. So make sure you build in space for all your belongings before hand by making and saving floor plans.

A third mistake people make when moving is forgetting about the box spring from their bed set. It can seem like an unnecessary step or annoying (especially if it's large) but without it, your bed won't work properly because it's missing one key piece! So make sure to pack this part up as well so your sleep doesn't suffer!
