Holiday Moves: Here’s How to Stay Merry

how to stay merry movingMoving during the holidays can be incredibly stressful, but it doesn’t have to ruin your festivities. With packing, lifting, and organizing, it is enough to start feeling like the Grinch. You better not pout, you better not cry, because myBekins is coming to town to help you with your holiday move. We have a few simple tips that you can use to put the holiday spirit into your move so you can jingle all the way to your new home.

Decorate Where You Can

While you may not be able to set up a tree, menorah, or other religious or seasonal symbol of the holidays, you can decorate elsewhere. Put a holiday background on your cell phone, decorate the inside of your car with garland, and listen to holiday music when you can. These small reminders can really put you in the holiday mood. Best of all, you don’t have to do all the work of taking loads of decorations down after New Years!

Wrap Your Gifts Before Packing

If you are going to be moving during prime gift-giving season, pack wrapped gifts ahead of time. This will save you the frustration of having to look for wrapping paper, tape, and bows after you are already stressed from unpacking.

Attend Holiday Activities

A house full of boxes is far from joyous. Get out and attend a community holiday event! It is a great way to procrastinate packing or unpacking. Plus, if you have just moved to your new city, this is a great way to get to know people in the area!

Treat Yourself

Moving during the holidays is no easy feat, so you should give yourself a nice pat on the back. Treat yourself to a nice cup of warm cocoa, get out on a nice walk, or take yourself shopping for something to decorate your new place. Sometimes even adults need a gift from Santa.

Send Santa a Change of Address

If you have kids, they may be afraid that Santa won’t know that they have recently moved. A fun pre-moving activity is to write a letter to Santa informing him of your holiday move. Give him your new address with an updated list of new toys. Make sure you will leave him a few extra cookies for any inconvenience the move has caused.
