It is never easy to leave one chapter of your life regardless of how much better the next one might be. But you might be reluctant to leave a much beloved home. Here are some ways to ease the transition.
Throw a Party
Make moving a chance to celebrate all the memories you created in your home. Invite friends and family who have shared in your experiences or may have been part of your household at one point or another. Make the last party you throw in your home a truly heartfelt and enjoyable one.
Clean it Up
Go through each room, and clean it up as best you can. This is also a good way of determining what you want to take with you and which items you need to leave behind. Set aside things you don’t intend on using anymore and donate or sell them. Look for movers who can help you. Around Town Movers, for instance, offers an Auction Disposal Services program where our professionals take your belongings off of your hands and sell them for you.
It is a great source of motivation to have something to remind us of where we’ve been in our lives. Take something with you that will remind you of the part of your life you spent in your home. If you had a window replaced, for example, take it with you, and turn it into something useful for your next home.
Leave a Message
Make peace with the move you are about to make by acknowledging the opportunity you are giving another individual or family to create great memories in the same place that you have. Write them a letter to encourage them to have as much fun as you did and to pass the same positivity on when their time to move comes, too.
