Make Your Move Go Your Way.
Big firsts are always exciting. Your first bike, your first kiss, your first job, your first car; these are all things you値l remember for the good. But a first move is something you値l remember forever, but most likely for the bad. To avoid the "first move woes" try following these tips to make sure everything goes smoothly:
1. Don't be afraid to ask for help
You've never moved before, so you're not really sure what you need or what the move is going to be like. So get someone who has moved before and ask for some advice. Whether it's about packing, things you need to bring, or just cleaning tips, an experienced mind can give you some valuable help. You'll be kicking yourself if you realize you forgot to bring a trash can, a blanket, a fan, dishes, silverware, socks, a toothbrush. A second mind can help make sure you have everything you need.
2. Don稚 loose your patience
Unless you致e lived on your own before, it痴 hard to know how much you eat, especially when you致e been sharing with your family for your entire life. So when you move to your new place, don稚 over-stuff your fridge and cabinets with food because much of it can become spoiled. For the first month, just buy what you need for a few days. At the end of the month you should better be able to judge how much you really eat.
3. Don't worry
You probably will feel really exhausted after you move in. This is because you致e been cleaning, shopping, organizing, cleaning some more, and going to sleep late. Don稚 worry about it. After you致e really settled in and have everything cleaned and under control, you should get your energy back again.
4. Don't forget to eat
I said not to worry, but I didn稚 say not to eat. You may be so overwhelmed by your first move that you might forget to feed yourself. When you池e done the days cleaning, make sure you eat and drink something. Even though you might not be hungry, you don稚 want to go a whole day of cleaning without nourishing yourself.
5. Don't forget to do you laundry
Maybe your mom has been doing laundry for you entire life. If so, you don't want to find yourself realizing you have no clean clothes to wear.
Good luck on your first move!
