Advice when Moving to a Smaller House

Home Improvement
This article gives tips and advice to people who will be moving to a smaller house. It covers the packing and the arranging of things at the new home.

Moving to a new house can be taxing on both patience and the mind. Due to the crisis which has been hounding numerous individuals of late, more and more people are thinking of relocating to smaller houses to have lower monthly fees from the rent to the necessary electricity and water bills. One problem that hounds people who intend to move to smaller digs is the fact that there current things may not actually fit into the less spacious new home. Here are a few tips about making a move to smaller homes.


Those who have a lot of things can actually hope to make some money from them through a garage sale. Moving to a smaller house may prove to be cramped if all the things from the larger house are brought in. So it may be best to segregate which things are not so useful in a smaller home and sell these through a garage sale and which things can be used after the move. There may be objects or stuff that the owner would like to keep in spite not having enough room; these can be kept in storage for a reasonable price. Breakables and perishables should be packed with extra care. Food stuffs should be packed with like stuffs and duly listed down in order to prevent them from spoiling.


When packing stuff, it works best o label each individual box with accurate descriptions of what is inside. Boxes that will go to storage should also have labels saying they are headed there as well as what they contain. It is not advisable to store things that have an expiration date, especially those with dates that are within the year. Chemicals should not be stored as well since some storage areas may be too warm or too cold and can pose potential threat or danger.

Potentially dangerous objects should ne pointed out to packers and whoever will be transporting these to the new house. When moving breakables or chemicals, it is advisable to use packing materials that will prevent them from being jostled unnecessarily. It is important not to put chemicals together in a single box if they have the potential of combusting or having a chemical reaction. Each individual bottle or container should be wrapped in newspaper or plastic, whichever is the least dangerous, and then sealed with tape around the lid or cover to prevent spillage.

Breakables should have the necessary padding whether they are to be transported to the new house or brought to the storage area. Crumpled newspaper may suffice for some types of glass but others may actually need special wrappers or foam to keep them better.

A Place for Everything

In the smaller new house, additional shelves and cabinets may allow for more things to be brought in from the old house. Always ask the landlord, if renting, if additional shelves can be placed. Some contracts may limit the additions of things which may require nailing or the use of power tools on walls. Cabinets which are moveable and not permanent may be a better solution if there is some extra space. If there is a garage in the place where the person will be moving to, this may double as the storage place to avoid paying fees for storage.
