Spring Clean While You Move
Posted on March 10, 2022
Rent a storage container to make your move and spring clean easier
It seems that this thing called "spring cleaning" happens in March. Although it feels amazing when the big spring clean is complete, it isn't everyone's favourite spring activity. Now, add a move into it.
If you are planning a move, spring is definitely the best time. Moving is a lot less stressful once the snow has melted and the weather has turned. With a spring clean, there often comes a decluttering process, which conveniently enough is something we highly recommend during a move.
When it comes to moving in the spring, it will feel as if you are spring cleaning two homes, which in a sense is true. Start by sorting all your belongings to determine what you plan to keep and what you could handle letting go. Parting with items you no longer need will feel like a fresh start when you settle into the new place. Whether you are moving into a bigger or smaller one, downsize your belongings.
Take Advantage Of A Storage Container Rental
Moving and cleaning while boxes and taken apart furniture are everywhere is very challenging. Save yourself the stress by contacting a moving and storage company to inquire about container storage. Having a mobile storage container situated at your current residence allows you to move items you plan to keep directly into the storage box and out of the way.
Have A Plan
Like any major life event, have a plan, and stick to it the best you can. A great way to part with some items without feeling like you are just throwing away money is to have a garage sale. Garage sales are a great way to declutter your house before the big move while making a little money.
Know what you will need right away when you move and put those at the front of the storage container. Plan to live on the bare minimums for a few days until you get settled. Remember, don't pack your cleaning supplies.
One Room At A Time
Packing and moving can be overwhelming. It's best to focus on one room at a time to pack it up and give it a good clean. The same goes on the other end; before moving in, give each room a clean and move items into the appropriate space. Pro moving tip: have a moving checklist of belongings in each room and label boxes.
Wait for a nice day to do the big spring clean so you can open the windows and doors to let some fresh air inside.
