Don’t Forget These Essential Items When Moving In (A Must For The First Day!)
Moving can be one of the most stressful times of your life. And the actual day itself can be a day of woes. But as long as you pack correctly and label all your boxes, it doesn’t have to be stressful. In fact, check out my previous blog to minimize moving stress. But as well as being organized, you need to ensure you have some vital items with you. After all, there will be some things you need to do straight away that won’t wait until you open all your boxes. Therefore, here are some essential items you need when moving in which are a must on the first day.
A set of tools
When you move into your new home, you will want to start building important items like the bed straight away. And unless you have the tools to do it, you won’t be able to do it during the first day. But it’s never fun to sleep on a mattress on the floor during your first night in a new home. And it can take forever to find your tools in one of the millions of boxes now sitting in your new home. Therefore, make sure you take a separate bag with vital tools that you can start using straight away!
It’s also important that you go to the house as soon as you get the keys to check if there are any missing light bulbs. After all, you don’t want to end up in darkness during your first night in your new home. If there any missing, make sure you write down exactly what kind of bulbs you require. That way, you can go quickly to the shop to find some new bulbs. You might want to consider going for Household LED Bulbs which will ensure your home is flooded with light when you move in. And these type of bulbs can help you to save money on your energy bills! Therefore, it might be worth paying a little extra and going for LED’s for your property.
Moving heavy items and unpacking boxes can be thirsty work. And the worst thing can be if you can’t find a kettle to make hot drinks. After all, you will want to have a coffee to help you have energy while you are busy moving home. Therefore, keep the kettle separate so that you can easily find it to put in your new kitchen. And if you don’t want to carry your heavy kettle around, you can find a small portable one which will be brilliant to just use for a couple of days!
A sharp knife
When you packed your boxes, you would have ensured they were tightly taped, so your belongings stayed safe. But now you have moved, it can be a challenge to get in them. Therefore, you need to ensure you pack a sharp knife with you so that you can easily open the boxes. After all, you don’t want to spend ages trying to get into the boxes. Go for a couple of different sizes which can help you get into a range of boxes.
And keep your mobile phone with you, so that you can ring suppliers to tell them you have moved in!
