For most of us a marriage signals a huge change in our lives. Moving is often a big part of that. You have to take all your items to your new home. Here are a few tips to make your Newlywed move a bit easier.
Discuss Your Moving Budget
Marriage goes comes with budget changes. It is no longer just “your” money. Discussing what you want to spend on the move is a great way to get started. It’s excellent exercise for your future financial discussions. Take our word for it that movers love to hear that you know your budget for the project as well.
Make Time for Loving Moments
Moving in after a wedding can be stressful. It is not uncommon to have one or two fights. Make sure to make time to spend with each other. It’s normal for married couples to fight at times. The strongest couples take time to apologize and hug it out. Take some time to relax and tell your spouse that you love them.
Communication is Vital
In any relationship it’s crucial to talk with your partner. During a move you should do that and discuss everything with your moving team. Either take some time to meet with the movers in person or talk with them online. Any good mover will be happy to meet with you as a couple.
Create a Checklist of Important Items
This advice could apply to anyone moving. It’s even more important when in a relationship. This is because missed items can become sore points. Losing a beloved picture or family heirloom can add stress to your new relationship. By creating a selection of “Important” items you won’t miss any. Then you can make some new precious memories with those items.
Clear the Clutter
One big problem couples face is clutter. Bringing in all your stuff often leads to a crowded house. This rule is even more important for apartment renters. Before your move you should work with your spouse to discard useless items. This helps you avoid the clutter and speed up the moving process.
Mix Your Items
Most couples each have a few of the same items. Towels, plates, and glasses are a few common items. Take inventory of how many of these you have per person. Then decide if you have the right number, too little, or too much. This cuts down on the clutter and helps you plan your household.
This tip isn’t for every couple. It is useful for meticulous couples. Sit down together and plan out your move by using a calendar or day planner. Organization can save you a huge amount of time.
