When you dream about spending nights in your new home, you may be thinking of cozy evenings by the fire, stories at the dinner table or beloved guests coming by for a visit. The first night however, is usually not so ideal. Once the arduous task of moving has been completed, you'll be looking for anything to signal its end. Follow our tips to make sure the first night in your dream home is far from a nightmare.
Remember the Essentials
During the final moments of packing you'll want to shove everything on a truck and worry about efficiency later, but don't fall into that trap! Take some time to make a list of things you'll want when the hustle has died down and you can exhale in your new home. Include items like paper towels, bathroom tissue, hand soap and phone chargers on your list. Set aside loofahs, bath towels and body wash for a hot shower after a long day of moving. Don't forget to prepare a backpack with important things like medications, laptops and a change of clothes for the next day.
Take advantage of the Wi-Fi available in your old home before braving a new, unconnected world. Download a few of your favorite shows and movies before the move. Load up on podcasts and keep a speaker within arm's reach. Chances are, your cable and internet are being installed within the next few days, but why risk it? And remember, if you prepare the kids' media the same way, the first night will be easier on everyone.
Snap A Memory
You did it! You moved into your new home and this is the only first night in you get. Gather the family and pose for a proud selfie in the doorway.
