You can have a stress-free move when you utilize the following tips. A 5A Rent-A-Space storage rental near West can free up space and give you breathing room to enjoy the holidays even in the middle of a move.
Suggestions for a Stress-Free and Relaxing Holiday Move with Your Storage Rental
Enjoy your celebrations when you prepare ahead for a stress-free and relaxing holiday move. Instead of getting overwhelmed by a lengthy to-do list, follow these handy suggestions:
- Make Full Use of Your Holiday Cards: As you are writing out holiday wishes in your cards, go ahead and let your family and friends know your new address. If you have little ones, make sure Santa knows you have moved. Make sure they mention it in their letters to the Head Elf.
- Get Your Gift Shopping and Wrapping Done Early: Now is not the time to wait until the last minute to get your shopping done. Take a look at the days to come so you can plan on purchasing and wrapping your presents as soon as possible. You avoid the frustration of trying to locate your scissors, tape, and wrapping paper in the midst of half-packed moving boxes. Remember to grab stocking stuffers, too!
- Turn Up the Tunes: It can feel decidedly unfestive to spend the holidays packing. Turn up your favorite Christmas carols to sing along as you pack boxes and sort through your belongings.
- Limit the Decorations: Resist the temptation to keep up with the neighborhood’s ‘annual decorating contest’. Consider limiting the decorations to your living room. This will make it much easier to take them down and pack them up.
- Check Out Your New Community: If you are moving right before the holidays, check out your new community by driving through the neighborhood looking at the festive lights.
- Take a Break: It is a good idea to take a break even though you may want to unpack throughout the night. Santa’s elves may work right up until the sleigh leaves the North Pole, but you don’t have to! Get your family together, make some cocoa, stock up on cookies, and enjoy a simple celebration of your move.
- Take Advantage of a Self-Storage Unit: Nothing can bring out the Grinch in a person than having too much clutter while trying to move. When you take advantage of the extra space a self-storage unit offers, you keep your home free from the frustration of tripping over packed and half packed boxes.
