The Ultimate Checklist for Setting into a New Home

Moving into a new place

Moving into a new place can be exciting, but it can also be challenging. At this time, a moving checklist can help you settle in faster.

Tip Items That Should Be On Your Moving Checklist

Here are some things you should include in your moving checklist so you can settle in faster and reduce your stress:

1. Make an Unpacking Plan

You may be tempted to dive right into unpacking, but random unpacking will only increase your workload. Label your boxes before the move to prioritize what you should take out first. For example, you will need your kitchen first thing, so you don’t have to get takeout.

2. Shop for Necessities

Make a list of must-have items in your new home for the first week and stock up. These include food, toiletries, pet food, medication, and other items you need immediately. If you don’t have a dishwasher or refrigerator, buy them first and use the rest of the money on other necessities.

3. Check Your Appliances

If your new place doesn’t have appliances, ensure you have the budget for these oversized ticket items. Plus, measure whether your appliances can fit in the rooms by measuring them beforehand. Consider selling and downsizing items that don’t fit for a smoother move.

If your new home has appliances, check them to ensure they are in good working order. Turn on the microwave and the washing machine, and see how long the refrigerator takes to form ice when it is turned on.
