The first twenty-four hours in your new home are crucial, but they don’t have to be stressful. Here’s what you can do to make the move count. The most important thing to remember is to make every minute count when moving into your new space. Use these tips to streamline the moving process so you can truly enjoy the excitement that comes from such a life-changing purchase.


  1. Prior to moving, make sure to pack one box with all the necessities you need for the first day and night in your new home and label appropriately. You don’t want to be rifling through boxes looking for a fresh towel, toilet paper, or a coffee mug.
  2. Double-check all rooms for any issues right away. A thorough inspection of the house will bring any problems to light making fixing these problems easier to take care of before furniture is unloaded and items are hung up.
  3. Cleaning should be a no-brainer when getting settled in a new space, so be sure to wipe down all countertops and frequently used areas. With all of the chaos that moving in entails this important step get easily gets overlooked. Remember to break out the broom, cleaning spray, and paper towels to freshen up main areas.
  4. Begin researching local doctors and dentists, as well as any other essential numbers to have: babysitters in the area and the best pizzeria or coffee shop. You don’t want to be scrambling at the last minute if someone gets sick or you simply need something quick for dinner.
