Packing for a New Home Move

Packing to move to a new house is one of the more time consuming parts of the home ownership process. If not organized and laid out effectively, packing for a house move can be exceptionally draining, both mentally and physically. Another drawback to packing ineffectively is that the actual process of wrapping and packing your household goods could end up taking several days, perhaps longer than two weeks.

Time saving house packing tips and advice

On the flip side, it could take you just as long to unpack if you don’t start out packing o move to a new house a good way. Here are some tips that can save you time and energy when it comes time to pack and move to a new house.

  • Schedule time to pack – If you only pack when the mood hits you or if you pack while you’re feeling rushed, you could start to fall behind. That may lead you to start tossing things inside the first box that you see.
  • Start packing early – Give yourself two to three weeks to pack. You may need an additional week or two if the house that you’re moving out of is large.
  • Wrap delicate household items – Use bubble wrap or paper to protect delicate glass, ceramic, china and porcelain products.Also, wrap computers, laptops and television monitors. Basically, wrap and protect all items that could easily break if they were dropped or if another item kept pressing against them while they were packed tightly inside a box.
  • Leave room – To piggy back on the above tip,leave enough room between delicate household items to keep them from smashing into each other and breaking, bending or getting scratched.
  • Label properly – Pay attention to how you label boxes. Use a dark, thick marker to label boxes with. Save yourself the hassle of typing up box labels. Pack similar items together and label one to two sides of each large box. This makes it easy for you to find what you’re looking for.
  • Toss items – Get rid of items that you never use.
  • Loading moving trucks – Load boxes on moving trucks by room. For example, load bedroom boxes together.
  • Get insurance – Whether you pack and move to your new home yourself or hire a professional mover, consider insuring valuables.

Important house packing points to remember

You will have plenty to take care after you finalize your mortgage, closing and home ownership paperwork. As tempting as it might be, avoid dumping small household items into a bag or a box. It will help to keep your valuables from breaking. It will also make it easier for you to find important items after you arrive at your new home.

In fact, packing the right way pays off even if you hire professional movers to haul your furniture, appliances and other household goods to your new home. Another point to remember should you hire professional movers is to let the movers know how you want items categorized and boxed. Again, this saves you time on the back end, when you start to actually move into your new house. The less time that professional movers spend packing and unpacking your household goods the more money you save on the move.

Find Out If Working from Home is Right for You

Working at home eliminates commuting costs. Working at home also frees you of the need to put on a dress or suit and tie, head outside and bear cold or excessively hot temperatures.Perform your work from home and you’ll cut down on clothing expenses, not to mention reducing your stress levels, as you no longer have to sit in stop-and-go traffic. But, telecommuting or freelancing isn’t all upswing. If you’re not careful, you could set yourself up for failure.

Ask yourself the following questions before you embark on a telecommuting from home arrangement.The more candid you are in your responses, the more pitfalls you could potentially avoid.

Are you self-disciplined? Some people focus and meet deadlines best when they have someone who they meet with face-to-face so that they can give an update on their progress. Absent regular in-person check-ins, a worker could fall behind, spend hours thinking about personal responsibilities, finances and more, anything but work. If you work best when a supervisor or manager is nearby, working at home may not be best for you.

How important is time management to you? If you’re good at sticking to deadlines and prioritizing work, telecommuting or freelancing could be a win. You’ll need strong written and oral communication skills to manage your time well, as you’ll have to let colleagues, clients and supervisors know what you can do and when. If you have trouble telling people“No” or “Not now”, you may struggle until you build your confidence and learn how to let others know what you can and cannot take on.

Do you have the equipment to work at home?  A functioning laptop or desktop computer is a must in today’s work environment. As a safeguard, you may want to have a backup laptop or notebook at your home, should you normal computer crash. Other equipment and resources that you need to work at home include a printer, scanner, office software, filing cabinets, work desk and chair.

Are you prepared to take on added expenses?  Your mail, electric and printer costs could rise after you start working at home. Unless you have the disposable income, steer clear of running the air conditioner during the day. Another expense that could rise after you start working at home is your telephone bill. Consider using your smartphone to keep telephone costs at a minimum.

To make working at home work, you need your family’s support. Discuss your working arrangement with your partner and children. Let them know the days and hours that you plan to work. Discuss how you will handle overtime, should it be required, including how often you’re willing to work overtime. Make it clear to your family that you are actually working and not available to run errands,babysit or handle other projects that you wouldn’t be expected to take on if you weren’t working at home.
