The holidays are a wonderful time of year and a very busy time of year. For those who are preparing to move, this is an even busier time of year. Help make your upcoming move a little easier! Here are 3 important tips to follow—
Get organized. Before you begin packing up your stuff, take a moment to go through your items and determine which items you no longer want. The more you can get rid of the items you don’t want or need the less you’ll have to haul to your new home. So, take a moment to go through your stuff and donate it to your local Goodwill or Salvation Army or sell the items on KSL or Craigslist.
- Holiday spirit. If you have young children, they won’t understand the holidays will be postponed or altered due to the move. To help ensure they still have a magical Christmas, take some time out of your busy moving schedule to plan ahead and have some presents for them to open. Plus, don’t forget about Santa Claus and make sure he knows about your new address.0
- Change of address. Tis the season of holiday cards! Instead of mailing out change of address cards to your family and friends, let them know of your change of address in a fun, festive way. While you’re at it, remember to update your address with your utility companies, bank or credit union, and other important vendors or organizations who need to know your new address.
