What To Do After You Move In
So you’re all moved into your new place. Congratulations! For those of you that used Blue Crates instead of cardboard boxes for your move, pat yourself on the back, and we thank you. For those of you that did use cardboard boxes for your move, check your calendar, its 2018…
Anyway on to the topic at hand, what to do now that you are in your new place. Now that you are in your new place it is important to take care of a few things. For those of you moving into a rental it is important for you to take pictures of your new place before you get settled in. This will allow you to document any damage there may be to your place and help you prove that you are not liable for any previous damage.
At this time you will also want to make sure that you update your billing address for such things like, voter registration, mailing address, and other administrative accounts.
This is a fresh start. Your place has not been cluttered with things and you are still in the process of setting up your space. This is the perfect time to take advantage of this and get organized. Start thinking about how you would like to store things so that they are easily accessible. Look into how to best utilize your space.
Cabinet and drawer caddies are an effective and inexpensive way to organize your kitchen and bathroom spaces. Using the same type of hanger is a great way to maximize closet space. IKEA has wooden hangers for $4.99 for a pack of 8. They are wonderful and you can’t beat the price.
While you get organized, moving into your new place is also a great time to declutter your space. Make a trip to your local shelter to donate those things that you just aren’t using anymore. Use Blue Crates to store away some of those things that you still need, but just don’t quite fit in your new home. At $10.00 a piece for a crate you can’t afford not to.
Congrats again on your new place and your new adventure and remember that your new space is what you make it so make it work for you. These tips are a great way to get started.
