Moving into a new house can easily become the most challenging part of buying a home. Let a move get too far off track and within four to five short days, you could even regret buying the house that you know meets each of your residence needs.

These small things could ruin the move to your new residence

Lack of organization may be the single most leading factor that turns a house move into a disaster. Stacking moving boxes against the wall doesn't mean that you're organized for a smooth house move. In fact, if you don't do these simple things, it could wind up taking you twice as long to move:

  • Contact your current utility providers and find out exactly what you need to do to transfer utilities to your new address. If you're going with a different utility company, find out when you need to have your current utilities shut off to avoid paying for another month of service.
  • Take a few days to create a move checklist. Add everything that you need to do to the list.
  • Get enough moving boxes to fit all of your belongings inside without having to push or stuff items in the box.
  • Ensure that you have enough furniture coverings and cushions for breakable items like lamps, glasses and dinnerware.
  • Identify books, clothes and other items that you know you're not going to use. Donate these products to charity. You could also host a flea market or garage sale and raise money while letting others take ownership of the products.
  • Schedule time to clean your current home or apartment. This includes setting aside enough time to clean cabinets, floors, bathrooms and kitchens.
  • Drop cable boxes and other leased utility products off with the associated vendors. Just by holding onto some items like cable boxes, you could end up having to pay another month for cable services.
  • Settle outstanding bills with your current landlord.
  • Complete and submit a change of address form with the post office.
  • Let insurance companies, banks and other financial service providers know that you're moving.
  • Communicate your move, including your new address and telephone number to family and friends you trust.

Final notes on a good move

It doesn't take a lot to turn a house move into a disaster. Forgetting to contact a utility provider, return leased products or notify certain people and organizations that you're moving could become more than a nuisance. This forgetfulness could cost you financially.

Lack of other move decisions could require you to load and unload your moving truck double the number of times that you'd have to if you were better organized. Even if you pay professional movers to transport your household belongings to your new address, it only takes a few simple things to make the move time take longer. Let that happen and you could pay $100 or more extra to the professional movers.

Worse still is the fact that simple move mistakes can force you to leave your belongings unattended long enough to return to find the belongings gone. To avoid these and other mishaps, create and use a move checklist. Give yourself time to consider all of the things that you need to transfer, pack, shut off and finalize before you move.

Playrooms are usually the bane of a parentís existence. The neverending stream of toys from holidays and celebrations coupled with a childís lack of natural orderliness do not an organized room make. If youíre determined to end the clean up time struggle and find a solution that works keep reading.

For starters, forget the typical toy box solution.

Toyboxes only force children into creating a mess as they dig through its contents pulling toys out as they go to find the one they are looking for. Instead, opt for bins and/or baskets to corral your childrenís toys by category. This way legos have their own container and Barbie has hers.

Want to really keep a tidy playroom?

Put a cap on the amounts of toys your child owns to avoid overwhelm and minimal clean up time. Your child will be better able to manage their toys as well as enjoy them more. Donít worry you donít actually have to throw out all of their toys.

A great solution that also adds renewed interest in old toys is to keep most of your childís belongings in storage. You can then swap out their available selection throughout the year to keep their interest piqued without cluttering up the playroom.

Avoid moving the madness to your attic or basement by also regularly cleaning out existing toys to make room for the influx of the new during the holidays and birthday seasons.

Give your child responsibility.

Teach your child responsibility for their toys by having them clean up their own messes. Create routines throughout the day to help them learn how to clean up before they move on to their next activity. This could mean cleaning up before lunch and bedtime or even before moving on to a different toy.

Make cleanup a breeze for your child.

Keep all storage within reach so your child can not only easily access their toys but also easily clean them up on their own. You can do this by keeping like items with like and storing items in clear containers that are well labeled. If your child isnít old enough to read, create labels that have simple images that indicate what type of toy belongs inside each container.

Customize your storage solutions to your child. Review what works and what doesnít often and make changes accordingly. By creating a process that evolves with your child as learn new habits and even grow older you can guarantee a solution that sticks throughout their childhood.

Hopefully, youíve gained a few ideas on how you can improve your childís playroom to not only be better organized but also stay better organized. With some patience and modeling good organization behavior, your child will be keeping their playroom neat and tidy without a fight. Happy organizing!
