Moving is a process that can easily take days, if not weeks, to complete. Don't feel shut out before you actually move out. Living in your home, while also moving out does take some effort, but it can be done. Learn how you can live in your home, while you're also moving out:
Save the Main Spaces for Last
Whether performing a self-move or relying on the aid of a professional moving company – aim to keep key areas of your home for last. The kitchen and the bathroom should remain atop of the list of rooms to pack towards the end of the move.
Just how pleasant would you be if you couldn't get a bite to eat or find a place to take a shower in the morning? Probably not very happy. Pack the less used areas in your home and save these spaces until the end.
Head Outside for Fun
If you didn't spend much time in your backyard before, now is a great time to switch up the pace. This idea is an especially great option if you have young children and the majority of their toys have been packed. Heading outside and enjoying some fresh air is one way to keep them away from some of the safety hazards presented while moving, help them exert some of their energy and even get a burst of vitamin D.
Having races, picnics and even sitting outside and gazing at the stars are all great ideas to consider when the inside of the house is full of moving boxes.
If you and your spouse share a bedroom, your daughter has a bedroom, and your two younger sons also have their rooms, now is a good time to huddle up and come together. Rather than having belongings spread out around multiple rooms, having everyone share the same space makes more sense.
If there isn't a bedroom large enough to accommodate everyone, you can also toss convention out the window and transform the living room or den into a community bedroom. Sure, there will be an absence of community, but it can make the moving process go by more efficiently, and it's an excellent time for everyone to bond.
Moving is a lot of hard work so being able to enjoy your home somewhat while moving out is a welcomed benefit. Use these tips to find comfort in your home. Contact a moving and storage company for more information and assistance.
