How to Move Into/From Cartersville on a Budget
Here are some simple moving hacks that can make a world of difference.
Anyone who’s in the midst of a move can find themselves asking how it got so darn expensive. From boxes, bubble wrap, paper, and needing at least three guys to carry down the upstairs furniture, moving costs can really add up. I know how frustrating it can get, so I’ve created a PDF moving checklist that runs the whole gamut. From decluttering tips to prudent packing strategies, this resource covers it all. Today, though, I’ll touch on just a few of the finer points of moving.
Moving is largely a mental game, and you’ve got to have the right mindset if you want to keep your sanity. Don’t start buying items for the new house before you’ve moved everything over from the old house. I get it—you’ve finally locked down the perfect property and are so excited to fill it with a plethora of perfect things. However, holding off on purchases helps you in two ways. First, it allows you to be pleasantly surprised by just how much of your stuff works in the new house. Second, the items you have now are better than no items at all; if you order furniture and fixtures online and the shipping gets delayed, you’ll feel stuck in an uncomfy limbo.
The ability to think outside of the box (pun intended) will also serve you well when moving. Consider, for example, books and dishes. If you’re like me, you have lots of each. When you finally pack up all your books, it can be alarming just how heavy those boxes are. They’re basically cubic back-breakers!
Instead of stacking up books in boxes, how about putting them into suitcases so they can be rolled? It’s such a simple idea, but boy would it have made our past moves so much easier! While you’re at it, why not use the tablecloths, dish rags, and linens you have to bring with you anyways to wrap your valuables and glassware? Socks work for this as well!
I hope these tips were helpful and made moving seem a little less stressful. Again, I invite you to check out my moving checklist PDF and reach out to me if you have questions or real estate needs. Don’t be shy! Just give me a ring, and I’d be happy to chat with you.
