Recycle and reuse your boxes during the move. If your relocation is close, take a couple trips to and from your new home, reusing your boxes to reduce the amount you’ll throw away. Keep in mind, trips to the grocery store or other shops can pose a chance for you to snag some moving boxes and save the ones you may subconsciously throw out on a regular basis.
Making lists, checking inventory and marking your boxes will help with a smooth transaction into your new home. Keep the stress level low and move-in day under control, because it’s time to relax in your new home!
The moving period of buying a new house is a great time to purge on items that you may not need anymore. Get rid of or donate items that you’ve been meaning to throw away or that believe you won’t need in your new house. Plus, it’ll help reduce the boxes you’ll be moving on move-in day!
