Moving day is done and you’re all settled into your new place – AH! Breathe that big sigh of relief, now you can take your time getting familiar with your new home and here are some quick tips to get you going.
Don’t Get Overwhelmed
You’ve made the big move. It’s ok to take a breather. Unless you have a formal dinner party coming the day after the truck leaves you have a little time to unpack – so don’t be afraid to take your time. Unpack the important things first and go from there.
Clean As You Go
If you missed the chance to de-clutter on the way out of the old house take the time to do it now. Get rid of old things you forgot you even had, or aren’t sure why you even packed, and take a few minutes to clean items you intend to keep as you remove them from packing.
Update Your Address
If you didn’t do it before the move it’s a top priority to do it now. You don’t want to miss important communications, bills, and notices from getting to your new location.
Go For A Drive
If you haven’t already done so just take a day to really get to know the area. Drive around the back roads, see what’s around, and make note of all the important places like grocery stores and gas stations.
Get To Know The Neighbors
Spent time in the yard, go for walks, or even have a little BBQ in the front yard and invite the folks next door. It’s good to get to know the neighbors as they will be the people you’ll be surrounded by throughout your time in the community.
Time Out the Drive
It never hurts to give the ole commute a dry run. Getting to and from work will be one of the things you do often and knowing how long it can take, as well as alternate routes, can make the difference in a good day and a bad one. The same goes for the route to get the kids to school!
