For more information on ways to improve your living space, take a look at our blog:
Things Already in Your Temporary Home
A big thing to consider is what household items and amenities that you require are already in the home you are moving to. Some to name are beds, mattresses, dressers, sofas, tables, seats, kitchen appliances, and electronic devices, flatware, linens, and and all the other things you need to guarantee your comfort. Knowing what will already be provided for you helps to avoid overpacking and bringing unnecessary pieces that you might need to put away in storage or send back home.
Avoid Heavy Items
Try not to bring anything too weighted, large and bulky into the temporary home. There might not be enough space for you to place these items anywhere. Best idea is to keep the big items back at your permanent residence, or place bulky, heavy items in a storage unit when you are moving yourself between homes.
Do not forget your basic living essentials, whether it be your clothes, toiletries, medications, electronic devices, important documents and many more. The area or neighbourhood you might be living in could have shops that you can grab some small items from but it is best to come prepared. It would be tragic and a huge inconvenience to leave behind any of your essentials. Thus, ensure you remember anything significant and take unique consideration of your items, as mentioned previously.
However, it would not be a bad idea to go shopping for clothes or some products as it would be a great way to explore and become more familiar with the community.
