You’ve recently put your home on the market, purchased a new home, and now you’re ready to move. But where do you start?
First things first: packing up all of your belongings is a great excuse to go through everything that you own and purge all the unnecessary items that you have collected in your soon-to-be former home.
When moving into a new home or downsizing, often your new place is smaller or a completely different layout than what you had before, so it can be helpful not having to drag all the extra items that you have. These items, more often than not, stay in the moving box and end up in a closet somewhere, taking up valuable space collecting dust when it could have been put to better use or donated/sold to someone else who could actually use it.
The less items you have to box up, organize, store, transport, unpack, and find a new home for, the better! Not only will your new space feel more clean, organized, and collected, but YOU will feel this way too. Moving doesn’t have to be hard; in fact, in can be the opposite: an opportunity for you to bring order to your life and start fresh in your new home.
De-cluttering your home is not only beneficial to you going forward, but can make a world of a difference when it comes to staging your home for buyers. There’s often no need to hire a staging company or designer and renting items to enhance the features of your home. Simply rearranging furniture, taking some items out, or showcasing collectibles you may have hidden away can work like a charm – and it’s something that Calm Order can help with!
Calm Order can be a great help for people who are feeling stressed and anxious about their move – our Moving Coordination services offer a personal contact that will be there every step of the way, from packing and loading to unloading. We also offer an Unpacked to Organized service (more on that in our next post!) to help you get settled and organized in your new home.
