As the holidays approach, most families will be spending time putting up lights, ornaments, and other decorations. If you're moving at the end of the year, you'll be packing everything up and getting ready to travel to your new home. Moving always requires a lot of planning, but the holidays can make things especially complicated. Here are some tips to help you prepare for a festive move.
Start Packing Early
You should start organizing your home and packing up belongings as early as possible. First, pack non-essential items like books, extra bedding, and seasonal clothes a few weeks before the move. The holidays are a busy time of year, so try to do as much as possible in advance. If you don't have space at home to store several boxes of packed items, you can place them in storage for the time being.
Decorate in Moderation
It might be a good idea to scale things back, but moving doesn't mean you can't decorate. Decide which ornaments and lights you want to use and put the rest away in a marked box. Packing your seasonal decor separately will make it easier to put everything away when it's time to move.
Gift Yourself a Moving Company
If you're moving during the holidays, the best way to reduce stress is to give yourself the gift of a professional moving company. Let a professional team of movers take care of the heavy lifting and transportation while you focus on spending time with your loved ones.
