After months of searching and sightseeing different places in and out your town, you finally have a house in mind. You have been considering to move into that home for you find it suitable for you and your family. However, the thing that worries you is that your current home is much bigger than the home you want to occupy.
If this is you, here are some tips that may help you when you move into a smaller place.
1. Not every THING must stay.
Just like you moving into a different house, not everything must stay. You can either sell the things you no longer want to bring to your new home or donate them. Before you pack things up, think about the usefulness of those materials to you. Do you still reread the books you’ve long bought? Do your clothes fit you still? When was the last time you’ve used them? What about your children’s clothes? Are you still going to keep the baby stuff that your toddler and teens had already outgrown? You have to sort things out and decide which items should you bring so that you can separate it from the ones you will discard. This way, you can truly have a fresh start in your new home by bringing with you only what you currently use and need.
2. Plan out in advance.
My father used to walk around our home carrying a steel tape measure and getting the dimensional sizes of our furniture. He used this information to help him plan the arrangement of our things when we moved to a smaller house ten years ago. We were able to save tons of our energy as he had already created an exact plan of arrangement that we had to follow. We didn’t have to carry things back and forth just in case it didn’t fit in the spot we want it to be placed. So before you move with the Charlotte movers, take the measurements of the furniture that you plan to take along so that you will not waste both your time and energy.
3. Being extremely sentimental will take up so much space inside your house.
Growing up with a very sentimental mom, my siblings and I found it so hard to throw away things. As a result, the drawers of our cabinet look like we were having so much junk. I had struggled to change this attitude and no longer keep a lot of things. In order to do so, I ask these questions to myself everytime I have to face the decision between throwing something out and keeping it: “Will I need it in the future? If I’ll keep it where will I place it? Is it truly, truly important?” If you, too, are very sentimental, you don’t have to keep the entire thing you want to keep. You can create a scrap book where you can glue just a part of that which reminds you of something and place a label on it for you to be always reminded. This way you wouldn’t have messy drawers. You’d have an organized home instead of what can seem as an unruly junkyard.
4. Think inside “the box”
Imagine that your new house is no longer as big as what you were used to have with your old home. Would you purchase very large furnitures? Most probably not. Thus, when you are planning to buy additional things it is best to think inside the “box”, that is, your new home. Choose the furnitures that would least take spaces as much as possible to prevent having a crowded place to live.
5. Partner with a Moving Company you can trust.
Moving from a huge house to a smaller one requires strategic planning and the execution of it by professional movers.
