Making Your Move Special
Ilyce Glink for Right At Home Daily

Many people find moving to a new home tough psychologically. There are always mixed feelings about leaving a place in which you've had good times to go to a new home where the future is a big question mark.

But there are some things you can do to make your move a little easier. Pack your comfort items together, including favorite pajamas, bedding and CDs. Mark this box clearly so you can find it when you start to unpack. Make sure you know where the nearest supermarket is to your new home. That way, you can purchase something quick along with a bottle of something to make your first night a special one.

Finally, take photos of your old residence looking its best. Create a small photo album to take with you on the journey. If you have school-age children, give them a camera to photograph their best friends. Create a moving album for them and give photos of your children to their friends so they have something to remember them by.

By making your move something special, you will create happy memories that will carry you into your new home, and your new life.
