Eat Drink & Be Mary: 4 Tips for Moving


4 Tips for Moving

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of CORT. All opinions are 100% mine.

This time last year Thomas and I were moving into our first home together.  And I have loved decorating it and transforming it into a home.  BUT that doesn't mean that its been all rosey.  There are a lot of bumps along the way, and I want to help you avoid them if I can.  Things I wish I knew when we were going through the moving process.
4 Tips for Moving

I know that seems obvious, but I never do and it makes it 10000x easier to stay organized and find things postmove if the boxes are labeled.

2. Pack a box of essentials.
Make sure that one box has essentials for the first couple of nights in case you don't get to unpacking everything (because let's face it, you probably won't).  A survival kit of sorts.
This could include:
+ sheets for your bed
+ plates and utensils for a couple meals (paper/plastic is preferreable so you don't have to worry about doing dishes)
+ cleaning supplies, so you can clean and wipe down everything before furnishing it
+ shower/bathroom toiletries & towels
+ wine...because well moving can be stressful ;)
3. Remember it takes time.
Rome wasn't built in a day and your house won't be unpacked and completely furnished and decorated in a day either.  Turning your new house into a home takes time.  I realized it was best to set up our living room first because it is where we spent most of our time.  Then I've been taking it slow one room at a time, decorating and having it all come together (see our bathroom here and dining room mood board here)

4. Furniture Rental.
Like I said before, it takes time to completely decorate your house the way you like.  And ain't no one got time to shell about a bunch of money on all new furniture for every room in your house.  Y'all, CORT Furniture Rental is the way to go.  It is totally no hassle; and on-demand (because everything these days seems to be).  The furniture is there when you need it (super convienent) and gone when you no longer need it.
