Moving during December may not always be the best time to move into apartments. There are plenty of more ideal times to plan a relocation. However, most moves are often unexpected and, just like the holidays, seem to creep up on you. If you have to move during the holiday season, we’ve got some tips on relieving the stress and keeping up the holiday cheer.
Making Your Holiday Move Easier
Play Holiday Music
The perfect playlist can lighten the mood during any daunting task. When moving during December, what better music to listen to than holiday music? Turn on your favorite music streaming channel, website, or app and jingle all the way to your new home.
Pack a Holiday Box
Moving during December may be ideal for families with children and teens in school because they won’t miss class. However, they may feel like they’re missing out on some holiday experiences while you’re packing and studying your moving checklists. Avoid this dread by hanging minimal decorations around the house. When you’re ready to move, place all your holiday memories in a holiday box, so it’s easy to access once you get to the new place.
Send Holiday Cards
One task that should be a part of your moving timeline is sharing your new address with friends and family. Knock out two reindeer with one snowball by including your new address in your holiday greeting cards. This may save you from having to fill out a change of address form, and it’ll make the task more festive. Moving during December may be stressful because of the upcoming holidays and the need to pack. So, taking little shortcuts like this will save you a lot of time and stress.
Select the Gift Wrap Option
If you’re sending gifts to family and friends while moving during December, try some online shopping. And, whenever possible, select the gift wrap option. When you choose this option, you won’t have to worry about packing your own boxes or boxes sent to other people.
Move after the Holidays
Many friends and family members may take a few days off after the holidays are over, so you may be able to ask a few of them for their help with packing and loading up the moving van. If you are moving far away, it might be the perfect opportunity to see your loved ones for a while.
