Moving can go one of two ways: either it’s the single most stressful event in your family’s recent history, or it’s an event that keeps everyone laughing for years to come. Doesn’t that second option sound much more appetizing? The moving services specialists at Movone in Hoboken sure think so! Anyone can make moving fun, all it takes is some clever planning and following some of these fun tips and you’ll make your move easy and stress-free.
Make A Packing Playlist
While you turn up to pack, you can turn up the jams! Build a playlist that has a mix of relaxed, slower songs, and upbeat, more driven songs. When you first start packing, you can play your relaxed tunes to keep your attention focused while you pack at your leisure. As you grow closer to moving day, your playlist will move into its faster songs, helping you to pack more quickly. It’s a fun way to set the tone for your packing days. Similarly, you can create another playlist for unpacking that is full of exciting and joyful songs that capture your sense of relief having moved into your new home!
Pack A Moving Bag
Everyone loves going on vacation, and packing a bag for your getaway is part of the fun. When you get closer to moving day, pack a bag as if you were about to go on a weeklong vacation. In your getaway bag, you should pack a few days worth of clothing, any of the toiletry products that you might need, as well as specialty items like medications and glasses and contacts. You might even tuck a first aid kit in there. Keep this bag handy in your car. That way, when you move into your new home, you’ll have everything you’ll need to be comfy in your first week at your new place. It will keep you from frantically digging through boxes and bins to find your toothbrush or comb.
Celebrate With A Feast
When you’re all done packing and moved into your new home, it’s time to celebrate! But since you’ve packed up all of your kitchen and dishwares, making a big meal at home might not be an option until you’ve unpacked everything. Now is the perfect time to get acquainted with the new local pizza place, or take-out restaurant. Gather your family and the friends that helped you move around a slice of pizza, or treat them to some special treats and candies. They’ll appreciate the tasty food and your recognition for all of their hard work.
Find Ways To Reward Yourself
Moving and packing can be a pretty thankless task sometimes, especially if your friends and family aren’t as helpful as you were hoping they would be. If you’re working hard packing, set up goals to meet and then reward yourself for meeting them. For instance, if you get the entire house unpacked within the first week of moving in, treat yourself to a nice meal out. Setting up rewards like this are a great way to keep yourself motivated as you pack, move, and unpack. It will help to keep you focused, and your reward will feel all the more satisfying when you get everything done!
