HOWTOMAKEYOURMOVEGOSMOOTHLY Buying a new home is exciting. But moving? Not so much. Those who have been there and done that, possibly several times, know that moving is nowhere near as simple as throwing everything you own into a few labeled boxes. It’s a process. Sometimes a long one. However, it doesn’t have to be! Almost everyone who has ever moved has unpacked a belonging and asked themselves – “Why did I bring this with

me?” Think knick knacks, well-meaning gifts that just aren’t your style and keepsakes from your childhood. Lessen the amount of things to unbox by purging before you pack. Next, prepare yourself for the fact that there’s a chance not all your furniture will fit. Instead of

squeezing a too big couch into a too little living room – or vice versa – donate your old sofa and treat yourself to a new one. Or at least new to you. Lastly, don’t be afraid to ask

for help. Think about when a loved one asks you for help and how happy you are to do so!
