Person searching online for apartment rentals in Lansing, MI

As exciting as it can be to move into your very first home, the move itself can also be stressful and daunting. From packing and unpacking boxes to purchasing new items for your space, it can seem like there are a million things to do before you finally feel settled and can call your house or apartment a home. It can be easy to get overwhelmed with the many things to do when setting up your first home, but with a little planning and organization—and the help of this list from your friends at Westbay Management Company—your transition can be seamless…and even enjoyable.

Get Organized

When it comes to moving, an organization can make things much easier and smoother. Before you move into your new apartment or property, do a quick inventory of the things you have and the things you will need. It is always helpful to make and keep lists when planning and organizing your new space. When packing up to move, get rid of things you know you will not use or need in your new home, and make a list of essentials you know you will need.

Moving In

Once you are moved into your new space, use your list to organize each room and purchase what you may still need for your home. If possible, clean your space before moving all your belongings in. Set up your bed and bathroom first, and then begin to slowly unpack all your necessities. Try not to get overwhelmed with setting up your entire home in a short amount of time. Take your time to add personal touches to make your space feel cozier and more like home.

Enjoy Your New Digs
