Of course, by now you have thought of it all: drinks, groceries, pillows, and so forth. You don’t want to be the person who is caught without the basics, feeling uncomfortable and frustrated the first night you arrive at your new home.
But the real question is, do you have those creature comforts that we have grown accustomed to?
Don’t forget your phone charger
It is so easy to accidentally pack. The entire house can be labeled, packed, and boxed up—but some of the things you use daily can easily be mixed in with them. If your phone charger gets packed up, you could be in for some real trouble. By the time you get to your new house, you won’t even be able to call a pizza place for something to eat! Instead, put it to the side, and bring it in a purse or even a car’s glove box. You won’t regret it!
Keep medications close at hand
If you are someone who relies on daily medication, don’t be so foolish as to place it into a box and have it become mixed in with the rest of the riff-raff. Instead, place it in a small zipper pouch that won’t be far from your reach. The last thing you need is to miss a dose of important medication. That is a level of stress than any person going through a move could certainly avoid.
Cozy shoes are essential
It’s very easy to pack up all of those shoes. Everyone who has moved has gotten to that exhausted stage where they are throwing miscellaneous items into boxes. Sometimes shoes get thrown into that category. The last thing you want to be concerned with is being stuck with your most uncomfortable pair. Keep a cozy pair nearby during your move. Use them as a back-up, and don’t put them away in a place you won’t be able to access when you finally make it to your destination home.
Pet food to prevent unhappy animals
By the time you make it to point B, your pets will either be tired to the point of exhaustion or starving to the point of feeling sick. Don’t pack away their food so that it is nowhere to be found. Instead, leave some of it in a more easily accessible place so that they can have a meal as soon as you get to the new place.
