Reduce Your Stress: The Essential House-Moving Checklist

Nobody wants to lose their temper and get stressed out when moving to a new home with their family. However, that is something that happens to people when the time comes to relocate. The issue is that those individuals didn’t organize themselves properly. They could have removed all the stress from the process if they were smart enough to think ahead. Considering that, I’ve published an essential checklist on this page for all my readers. Either bookmark this article or use the search to find it again when you plan to move. I guarantee you will manage the process without getting stressed if you follow this simple three-step list.


Pack everything a week in advance

Whatever happens, you should never leave the packing until the last minute. If you do that, you might discover you don’t have enough boxes for all your possessions. You’re also going to create a lot of unneeded stress. Do yourself a favor and get all your boxes around two weeks in advance, you can then pack everything away with lots of time to spare. If you want to save money, make sure you ask for boxes at your local store. Some business owners will give them to you for free. If that doesn’t work, you just have to search online and order some cardboard boxes from a special supplier. You’re also going to require some strong tape.

Label your boxes correctly and keep them together

Not labeling your boxes is one of the biggest mistakes you can make. You add hours or even days onto your unpacking times if you make that error. So, get a marker pen the same day you buy your boxes. You then need to make sure you label them all correctly when you pack things away. You should then keep boxes containing items from the same rooms together. That makes it much easier to unpack and ensure you haven’t forgotten everything. Then, when you move, you can guarantee all the boxes marked “kitchen” or “lounge” go into the right room.


Employ the services of professionals

Lastly, you might as well use experts when it comes to the moving process. They don’t charge the earth for their services, and they also have insurance. That means if anything gets damaged, you can claim for the value of the item. There are lots of professional movers all over the United States, and nearly all of them have an online presence. So, it should be easy to read reviews and work out the best company in your local area. You can also negotiate on price in most instances. Get a quote from one firm, and then use that figure to drive prices down with their competition.

If you can tick all three of those points off your list, you should move house without too much hassle. Sure, there are articles online that offer more advice and go into more detail. However, there is no need to overcomplicate anything. The three steps outlined on this page are the only things you need to worry about when planning your move. You can sort the finer details of everything else out later.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
