One should prepare for moving to a new home no less seriously than for a tourist trip, keep a lot of information in one’s head because there will be no time for correction. We want to share an experience that will simplify the process of preparing and packing personal items. First of all, make a list of the most important objects in your opinion and collect them separately from others.
During life in one place in the house, a large number of things accumulate. A comfortable life requires a lot of different furniture, utensils, textiles, clothes, books, appliances, plants in pots and vases … Figurines, children’s crafts, family photographs in the framework – oh, how many little things sweetheart create coziness and a sense of hearth … But right after When moving, you will need things that can provide you with little Malaysian comfort while you unpack the boxes and settle in a new place.
Essentials must be packed in separate boxes. You will greatly facilitate your life if you sign these boxes in more detail and more clearly. You can even select for them a marker of a different color (for example, red). It will be necessary to load these boxes into vehicles last so that when unloading in a new apartment they will be the first to get them out and unpack them.
So, here’s a list of the things you need to buy first:
Food and drinks for the first time
In Hollywood films, happy lovers enter a new home with just a bottle of champagne and two glasses. In life, you won’t be full of one glass of sparkling wine. You can be sure that during the move your appetite will be serious. Therefore, be sure to collect a small supply of products that are not demanding storage conditions (moving is a long process, not all products will retain freshness outside the refrigerator). Do not forget water, tea, and coffee, a kettle or a thermos with hot water. On a plate and on a cup for each member of the family, forks, spoons, a knife, napkins or paper towels – do not hide it far away, put it in a separate box. You can also order the delivery of products to a new address.
Clothing and shoes for the first time
Save your time and set aside a couple of sets of clothes and shoes in advance where you can go to work. By the way, shirts, blouses, suits, and coats can be packaged in special wardrobe boxes. The design of such boxes allows you to transport (and if necessary – store) clothes directly on hangers. In addition to clothing for work, you will need to collect home clothes and shoes, underwear for all family members. Pack an iron and a clothes brush with your clothes, so you can quickly put your clothes in order.
Towels, hygiene products, hairdryer
It is not necessary to put in the box with essentials all accessories from the bathroom and toilet. You can confine yourself to the most necessary: toothpaste and toothbrushes, shower gel, shampoo, hair combs, hairdryer, several towels, a couple of rolls of toilet paper.
Bedsheets, blankets, pillows
You can definitely use them on the day of the move. The bed (or beds) will be assembled and you will be able to sleep comfortably.
If you have kids, then you have a good idea of how many things your offspring need. As well as adults, children will need first-time clothing, bedding, and hygiene products. If the child is small, then he will need diapers, bottles. For students, it will be necessary to collect textbooks and workbooks. And it is imperative that the toys are age-appropriate so that the kid has something to do while the adults unpack things.
First aid kit
Remember to bring along medications your family members need (for example, your parents need blood pressure control medications and your husband needs contact lens care products). In this medicine cabinet, you need to provide adhesive plasters, painkillers, iodine or similar antiseptics, drugs for food poisoning.
Screwing a shelf, attaching a router or other equipment to the wall, hanging a chandelier, cornices, paintings, photographs, hooks in the bathroom – small household work will be enough. Assemble the necessary set of tools (a screwdriver or screwdriver with interchangeable nozzles, a hammer, pliers, pliers, a wrench) and a small supply of fasteners. Several rolls of scotch tape will definitely come in handy when you need to collect, pack and take out used packaging, garbage, cardboard sheets.
During the arrangement in a new place, a big cleaning is ahead. Think over what it takes to clean up and collect a small supply of cleaning products, sponges, rags, a mop or a broom, and garbage bags. A vacuum cleaner may also be useful. And we strongly recommend that girls grab a pair of tight rubber gloves. Not everyone likes to use them, but hands need to be protected and protected.
