Moving into a new home at any time during the year is both a joy and a stressor. Moving during November and December adds an extra element to the whole experience. However, it can also be an amazing time to move as your new house will feel that much more special and exciting. Here are a few special things to consider when moving during the holidays:
- Plan ahead – this is part of any move, but even more important now as businesses will have holiday schedules in place. And then there are the celebrations and parties for the family to work around as well. Planning is critical.
- Watch the Budget – It’s easy to get carried away with things for the new home. Just remember to separate the wants from the needs, as Christmas will already be putting a crunch on the wallet.
- Keep some traditions – You may not be able to deck the halls the way you normally would. Ask family members which things are most important for them and find a way to keep those traditions alive.
- Let it go – There will be some things that don’t get done this year. Maybe it’s not the year for Christmas cards. Don’t let it get your spirits down. After all, those really aren’t important in the big scheme of things right now.
Through it all, keep your end goal in mind, and it will help keep your holiday and moving spirits up!
