As if the holiday season wasn’t busy enough, adding a move day to the schedule can make things particularly stressful. Don’t worry – we have you covered with our best advice on surviving the holidays and your big move.
- Plan your holiday calendar.
Even with a move, it doesn’t mean you should cancel the holidays completely. Taking a break from packing and organizing logistics for a holiday party is the perfect way to relax. As soon as you have your move day, organize your holiday plans around it. We recommend at least 3-to-4 weeks of planning time in order to leisurely prepare for the arrival of your movers. Want to free up even more time for holiday festivities? You can count on Meathead Packers to arrive before your move to prepare you for the big day!
- Include a change of address in your holiday cards.
Save on double postage by announcing your big move to friends and family via your holiday card. Place your new address inside the cards you’re already sending out for the holiday season.
- Donate items to local charities.
When packing for a move, it’s not uncommon to find yourself looking to donate some of your gently used items. What better time than the holidays to donate old sweaters, blankets and toys to a local nonprofit. The items that you’re donating will likely help many less fortunate people during the winter months.
- Set aside the holiday essentials.
Keep one box set aside that will make you feel settled during the holidays. Whether it’s a holiday wreath for the door or your waffle iron for Christmas morning, keeping your holiday essentials easy-to-access can help things feel a little more “homey” no matter where you are.
