De-Stress Your Move With These Helpful Tips!

Moving into a newly built apartment with Arcadia Run?  Welcome to the neighborhood! We’re so excited to see more happy tenants enjoying all that Arcadia Run and surrounding Manassas, Virginia has to offer.

But, we know the stress from the actual move sometimes puts a damper on the whole  experience.  So here are a few of our best moving tips to help make your transition to Arcadia Run a breeze!

Color Coordinate

Behold, the power of color coordination!  Organizing your boxes by their contents alone can get tricky, so instead, organize them by room.  All the living room items in one box, all the kitchen items in another and so on.  Make sure to assign each room a color and mark the boxes with the coordinating color.  When it comes to physically carrying the boxes inside, it’ll be easy to place them where they belong and continue the moving process.

Pack Strategically

After moving all of your belongings to your new space, it might be a few days before you can actually sort through and arrange everything to your liking.  For this reason, it’s important to pack your everyday items, like toiletries and clothing, in a place that’s easy to access.  This way, you’ll be able to live comfortably until you’re completely settled in.

Keep a Task List

In general, it’s always a good idea to keep a checklist of all the things that need to be done before, during and after your move.  It can be difficult to keep track of all the different things that need to be done, and in which order.  Most importantly, make sure to follow through with even the tiniest of tasks.  Scrambling to file paperwork with the local post office last minute could add unwanted stress to the moving process.

Good Will

When packing up your belongings, you might find you have several items that you no longer use or need.  So why not save yourself some time and donate or sell them before packing up and moving?  You’ll find moving much easier with less boxes to lug around!
