Moving in to your new home is an exciting period of your life. You get to start your life in a hopefully nicer place that where you were staying at. You would be in a new neighbourhood. Everything would seem different. You would probably feel a bit anxious because of the change but you know deep inside that this is what you want. So you would strive to ensure that you make the most of your new home and make it truly your own.However as it is with such major changes there would be quite a bit of difficulties and maybe even a few tears as there is a lot to do. Thus here are a few things to keep in mind, a checklist of sorts that you can go through to ensure that moving in would be at the least a bit easier.
Make an inventory of what you own
This is definitely one of the most important things you have to do. As you pack, note down what you own and how many of those items you have. This would help you understand your clutter, your hoarding habits and even help you find things that may have gone missing or been left behind while moving. If you realize you own too much of one things, for example, if you own three cheap mattresses that you bought thinking they were a steal, but the apartment you are moving into only has two bedrooms thus making the 3rd mattress unnecessary and kind of useless, then either sell it and make a bit of cash or donate it to someone else who might need them.

Provide adequate protection when packing things.
There is nothing called overdoing it when you are packing. Moving companies could mishandle your belongings therefore ensure that they would be well protected to withstand breakage or shattering. A tip that I find super useful is to use what you already own when packing. E.g. Clothes. You can wrap fragile things with clothes that you are going to take with you and then bubble wraps them to ensure that they stay comfy and cosy and won’t break. This way you don’t have to spend too much on bubble wrap and you can save space in your luggage.
Look for deals when purchasing new appliances.
If you want to buy an appliance for your new home, it is best to do it after you move in as you can find out if you can manage without it or not. In case you decide to buy make sure you scour through the internet and try to find a good deal. There could be cheap appliances being sold with a good warranty period and even with installment options available. Therefore always check for deals before buying something new for your apartment. Afterwards pack it well. Moving in to your new place is exciting but pay heed to the above and hopefully it would also turn out to be a hassle-free one.
