After weeks of searching Bend Oregon Homes for Sale you finally found the Bend Oregon Real Estate of your dreams and are ready to move into your first home.

Although you’re eager to move into your new home it’s important to know that moving does take preparation and you can successfully move into your new home by following these simple tips.

Pack an Overnight Bag 

The first thing to do before moving into your new home is to pack an overnight bag for everyone in the family because each person is going to need their own personal supplies and it’s better to have those items available in an overnight bag rather than having to search for them in boxes.

Pack All of the Daily Items You Will Need To Use First

Another important thing to do when moving is to pack all of the items you use every day into a plastic bin so you can easily find that bin when you move into your new home.

Use Extra Care When Packing Breakable Items 

For breakable items you should use a little creativity to pack those items and use clean socks to insulate small breakables or consider using blankets, comforters and sheets to insulate large breakable items like glass mirrors or artwork.

Label All Moving Boxes 

One of the most frustrating things to do when moving is having to read what someone quickly wrote on a moving box when you are moving into a new home.

To avoid this hassle you should consider investing in labels for your moving boxes and then once a box is packed / taped up you should encourage everyone who is helping with the move to apply a label to the box and clearly write on the box what’s inside it.

Clean The Kitchens and Bathrooms BEFORE Moving In

Since our kitchens and bathrooms are two of the most important areas of the home you should clean those areas first BEFORE moving into your new home because it doesn’t make sense to have boxes in those rooms because you will have to take them out and clean anyway before moving in.

Don’t Remove Drawers From Dressers Before Moving THem 

Before packing the contents of your dresser drawers you should consider keeping those drawers intact by wrapping the top of those drawers with shrink wrap or plastic wrap so you can stack each drawer in the moving van then reinstall them in the dresser when you arrive at your new home.

Use Press N Seal On Hanging Jewelry

Another cool thing you can do when moving is to use products like glad’s Press N Seal to wrap up your hanging jewelry before placing the jewelry box or armoire into a moving box.
