When you have work, school, and a huge list of other commitments to handle each day, the idea of spending time moving home can feel like a chore. Already spending much of your time doing things which aren’t fun, it will feel bad to spend so much effort on something like this, leaving a lot of people to stay in places which they don’t like. This is a shame, though, and it doesn’t take much to solve it. To help you out, this post will be exploring some of the easiest ways to make this part of life into a game, all while giving you some advice in the process.

 

Finding The Place

 

The place you choose will be very important to the time you have there. A lot of people will rely on estate agents to handle this part of the job for them, leaving all of the work to someone else. Of course, though, this sort of approach is rarely much fun, and could be greatly enhanced with a couple of games. Starting the process with a professional will single the beginning of a race. You will be working to beat the estate agent, showing your skills in a field which you don’t belong to.

 

Packing Things Up

 

Once you have a place in mind, you will be ready to start the long process of packing all of your possessions into boxes for transport. Moving is never easy, though, leaving a lot of people to rely on professionals to help them. Instead, creating a game out of your packing will be a great idea. This sort of option can be based mostly on time, and you can work hard to beat your past personal bests as a way to make it more fun.

 

Making The Move

 

The move itself could also be a bit of a pain, as a lot of people don’t have the skills or credentials to drive a large vehicle. Of course, for this option, the gamification won’t come in the form of driving, as you will probably have to pay someone to do this for you. To get some fun out of it, you can focus on the time before and after the drive, when the van is being packed.

 

Getting Things Ready

 

Finally, as the last area to consider, getting everything ready at the other end will be one of the funniest parts of your move. Most people will enjoy laying out rooms and assembling furniture, making the whole thing much more entertaining. Adding a little more to this won’t be too much effort, either. A lot of people find that unpacking efficiently is a big challenge, and this can give you something to aspire to while exploring.

 

Hopefully, this post will inspire you to start working harder on the time you put into your next house move. This part of life doesn’t have to be dull or stressful, as long as you’re willing to put the effort in to make things right and have enough time to spend on it.

Take The Stress Away From Moving Home

Take The Stress Away From Moving Home

Moving home can be one of the biggest upheavals any one of us can face. Not to mention the most expensive purchases we can make in our lifetime. But moving home can often provide us with many different possibilities. Experiences in living in different places, and the chance to make new friends and change our lifestyles. However, there is no hiding from the fact that it is completely stressful. So as summer seems to be a popular time for people to think about or even move house, I thought I would share my top tips to help take the stress out of the situation. I hope it helps you in the future.

Pack specifically for each new room in your home

Packing up your existing home may feel daunting, but unpacking is a whole new ball game. Especially if you have a different layout or different rooms to consider. This is why it’s important to pack up your old home with your new home as your focus. This means that unpacking will be easier and more organised, as will unloading and putting boxes into your new place. Make sure you clearly label any boxes and furniture with new home rooms, to ensure there is no confusion at the other end.

Pack an emergency box for when you arrive

Moving house isn’t normally done in a day. Of course, you may get there, but the unpacking can take further days and even weeks to complete. However, there are things you will need more or less straight away, so it’s important to pack up an emergency box for when you arrive. Include a change of clothes, toilet paper, a kettle, a toaster maybe. Some mugs and plates to eat and drink from during your first evening. Anything you think you might need for the first 24 hours, should be in these boxes. It makes it much easier rather than panicking looking through boxes in your new home.

Consider using a removal company for ease

With heavy furniture to move and a lot of boxes, you may want to consider the help of a removal service to do some of the hard work for you. Looking online will help you determine a local moving company to help you out. They can help transport large items of furniture safely, as well as help with some of the manual work like transporting boxes. This could be useful if you have children or family pets to look after during the moving process.

Take as much time as you can

It can feel overwhelming once you are in your new home and the urge to start unpacking everything can be huge. But try and take your time during this process. Once you are in, you have plenty of time to design your rooms, and ensure that you unpack things properly.

Remember to keep positive throughout the process

Finally, it is important to remain positive throughout the process f moving. Positive thinking can help elevate stress levels as you visualise everything going to plan, rather than facing problems.

I hope these tips help you take the stress out of moving home.
