5 Tips To Make Moving To Your New Bay Area Home A Breeze

Here are six basic tips to help making your move easier. Sometimes with everything going on, we forget the simple things that can make things a bit smoother.

1. Get the Boxes for Free

Many people make the mistake of going to the post office or some other expensive outlet to find boxes that they can get for free. All you have to do is go to your local department store, grocery store and similar establishments to find boxes that they have left over from inventory and such. Many stores will be happy to allow you to take those boxes with you. You can also check Craigslist, sometimes people are trying to rid themselves of boxes after moving themselves.

2. Get Friendly With the Trash Bin

Don't be afraid to throw some of your stuff in the trash. Many people try to save everything they have when about 30 percent of it is junk. Trash all broken, severely damaged, or "bad vibe" items immediately. Donate what you can to charity, and you will save much space, time and money.

3. Do Your Moving on Schedule

Break up the various moving tasks and assign them a time and day. If you have help, include assignment so you know at a glance what is being taken care of. Don't forget to share with your helpers so they can see what you have in mind. An organized moving schedule can make life that much easier.

4. Snapshot Your Electronics and Furniture

5. Make a First Day Box

The last of the five tips to make moving a breeze is to pack a box with all that you will need for your first night. You may be too tired to fool around looking for things on your first day there.
