It’s time to get cozy! Moving into a smaller home is an opportunity to figure out what really matters to you. You can really take note of all the belongings that you thought you needed but didn’t and give back to others in the process. We’re of course talking about donating and selling the items you no longer need before the packing company arrives.
Once you’ve decided what you want to take to your new home, it’s time to start packing. Learn how the professional packers at All My Sons Moving & Storage get the job done right.
- Start with the Right Mindset
What would you put into your new home if you had nothing? Start with the essentials and work your way to fully furnishing your new home. You can do this while you’re packing to make sure you are only packing what you think you really need when you arrive.
Packing companies can help with this process so feel free to ask your movers for some packing advice!
- Take Lots of Pictures
Take pictures when you visit your new home. If you don’t have the chance to take pictures, use the pictures you have available.
Use these pictures to plan where your furniture will go before you begin packing. Moving into a smaller home means saying good bye to furniture and appliances you don’t have space for anymore.
- Pack Light
It goes without saying but sometimes it’s helpful to be reminded: moving into a smaller home means packing less.
- Organization is Your Friend
The key to moving into a smaller home is to stay organized. You can keep a lot of your valuables, paperwork and linens if you know how to organize them properly. Invest in some crates and storage bins and use the space at the bottom of closets to store items you don’t want to part with.
