Tips For Moving In Together

|

Two living room couches, two beds and more books, pots and pans than you can count—once you’ve said “I do,” to moving in together it’s time to morph two lives into one and consolidate your things. Below are a few tips to help keep you sane during this transitional process.

 

  • Start with a Purge: Be honest with yourself. There is probably furniture or clothing that you secretly hate, or at least could live without. Make the move simpler by slimming down on your inventory. Go room by room and pick out items you have no problem donating to your local Goodwill. For items that are broken beyond repair, consider tossing them in the trash.

 

  • List Items You’ll Want to Keep: Once you’ve reduced the number of items to move, walk through each room and write down the belongings you want to keep. Have your partner do the same at their place. With all items known then compare lists.

 

  • Get Rid of Duplicates: When you and your partner talk through your combined lists, there’s bound to be overlap. Now’s the time to decide, do we really need two blenders? Have an honest discussion about what stays and what goes. Decide whose kitchen appliances or artwork you want to keep, and what will be sold, donated or stored

 

  • Consider A Self Storage SpaceThere might not be enough room to keep everything you love in your consolidated space. For items that you just can’t part with, but that won’t fit in your new household, consider keeping them in a climate-controlled or standard self-storage unit. The type of unit you select will be based on each item’s unique set of storage needs, but either selection will give you and your partner extra time to decide what to do with these items long-term.
