Unlike the usual snippets seen in television and movies, moving house is a transition in your family’s household that requires a lot of time, effort, and careful planning—lots of planning. Because this phase can set the tone for the new home that you and your loved ones will live in, it is important to make this as smooth as possible.
Here are a few tricks that you can use during the planning stage of moving house.
- Assign colors for each family member or for every room. You can put markers or sticky notes on each box, corresponding to the room, such as pink for your daughter, blue for the living room, and so on. This will also help you later when setting up the things in your new home.
- Make sure that all items are sorted per category. Although you are going to pack things per room, it is best to sort them out per category, such as books and reading materials, mats and sleeping items, lighting fixtures, and so on. With this, further narrow your categories down, namely wires, memorabilia in college, pens, and the works.
- Have cleaning supplies handy. Remember to set aside a rag, broom, alcohol, vacuum cleaner, soap, and a bucket for water.
- Separate important documents from the rest of the items. These might include employment and school records, IDs, bank records, land titles, birth certificate, passport. Try to keep them wrapped in plastic and stored near you.
- Make sure to keep the moving house fun for kids. If your kids are still toddlers, have items or activities that would keep them busy and safe when you or movers become busy. If they want to help, give them light yet encouraging tasks, such as labelling the boxes or sorting out their toys or school materials. Also, try to have music around the house to cheer everyone around!
