5 Things To Do Before You Move

5 Things To Do Before You Move

1. Clean your former abode.
Whether you're moving into your first home or a timely professional in the moving thing, clean your last home before you move into this one. It helps organize all your things for packing and leaves the house in the best shape for the buyers.

2. Donate all the things you're not taking with you.
If you haven't worn it, purchased it, or used it in the last 2 years(unless it holds significant emotional value to you) : you won't need it and it's time to get rid of it. Seriously, you don't need the prom dress from 1999. You may want to hold onto the antique wedding china from your great grandmother. Donating the other things will help your (former) community and will keep usable things out of the landfills. 

3. Pick a color scheme for the new place
Massively important to your total mood of your home. Start with the main rooms and decide what you want for those rooms, then tone it down for each step of privacy( the office is a midlevel, bedrooms lowest level). So Start with Apple Greens, then move down into Yellow Greens, then move into Mint Green.  Once you know what you're doing, start painting. It's way easier to paint a house when you're not trying to cover furniture and rearrange pictures and all that jazz.

4. Forward ALL THE THINGS!! 
No but seriously, make sure you've contacted the post office to forward mail to your new address and make sure you've contacted all the necessary parties about your address change: your credit card companies, your office, car/home/life/health insurances, your mother, etc. Seriously, if your mom doesn't have your home address how will you know that your second-cousin-twice-removed is getting married? 

5. Rent a Quality Moving Company
Seriously, it's not that expensive and it saves your friends and family the agony of packing and unpacking and then sipping beer on your still-covered-in sheets-and-dusty couch. Moving Companies are not that expensive and seriously save everyone so much angst and wasted Saturdays.
