We know – moving is stressful. There’s so much to do and pack. The big day can be even more mentally taxing; you’re rushing around, trying to check off everything on your to-do list. Once you’re finally moved in, you might realize that amidst the hubbub that you’ve forgotten something important, such as your toothbrush.
That’s why we’ve compiled a list of moving day essentials. Read on to discover what things you absolutely need to have for moving day.
The Things that Keep You Running
Today, you need your cell phone, laptop and/or tablet. And those devices need to be charged. Don’t pack those items – keep them in an easy-to-access place. The same goes for spare batteries for any devices.
If you take medication or vitamins, keep them with you as well. It’s expensive to get emergency refills.
The Things that Keep You Comfortable
Imagine this: you finish unpacking and you order takeout. You look around for something to eat off of, and realize you don’t have anything. Or, you spilled some soda over dinner and want to clean it off, but you’ve got no paper towels.
Bring tissues, toilet paper, paper towels, recyclable plates and cutlery so that the first night in your new home is comfortable and pleasant. If you’re planning on taking a shower, take along a shower curtain, too.
The Things that You Need for the Move (and Beyond)
It might seem obvious, but you’d be surprised how many people wind up packing important items and documents such as their wallets or paperwork for the purchase or lease of their new home. You might need to pay for an unexpected expense, so you need your credit card available.
Consider carrying a backpack with these necessities in them, and don’t let it out of sight until you’ve finished moving. It’s helpful to pack snacks and some water in this bag, too, so you don’t get hungry or thirsty.
The Intangible Things that Make the Move Go Smoother
While you might have excellent reasons for moving and you’re looking forward to starting a new life someplace else, the process of moving is headache-inducing. Everyone approaches it with a sense of dread.
However, your attitude and how you respond to the situation plays a role in the moving experience. If you’re flexible, have a sense of humour and are patient, the move won’t be so bad. Also, the more organized you are, the smoother it will go – you won’t be scrambling to do things at the last minute, which is very stressful.
