First of all, CONGRATS! You and your honey have officially decided to purchase your very own home and move in together. You are now embarking on this new journey together as a couple; and plus, who doesn’t like decorating a brand new pad!
Like any couple, we can assume that you have previously migrated some of your stuff into your significant other’s home before. Your toothbrush is probably in the bathroom and maybe you have a drawer full of clothes, but other than that you really haven’t done much as far as physically incorporating all of your items into a shared space with another person. This can wreak havoc on a relationship especially when trying to combine two different households into one.
Thankfully, Me In Order has the tools (and man power!) you need to help with moving into your first home together. Your home can truly benefit from having a professional help out with the stress of packing boxes, unpacking boxes, and finding a home for every item that you both can’t bear to be without.
Our team of expert organizers will make sure that your home is set up in a way that functions and benefits both you and your significant other. This, as a result, will potentially decrease many future arguments that come along with living together in a new home for the first time.
Here are some tips that can help give you an idea of what to expect when you hire an expert organizer to help move you into your first home together:
1. If you don’t have a plan…we will make one
Combining two households into one can be overwhelming. You don’t really realize how much stuff you actually have acquired throughout the years until you decide to move. Our team can help you make sense of what you have and help you coordinate a plan as to how to make everything work in your new home.
We will help you make a strategy of how we can incorporate both of your treasured items into your new home. If you attempt to do this by yourself, it could result in frustration or even an argument. Let’s face it; nobody wants to be told they have to get rid of their stuff. By working together and communicating, we can come up with an effective way to make your living space functional with the items you both have.
Every home (and every couple) is different. We will dive in with you to make sure that your home reflects your goals for your first home together. If your man wants a “man cave” but you want a nice sitting area to drink coffee, we can compromise to make sure the spaces work for each person. We want your home to be the true vision of the life you want for yourself and your sweetheart.
2. Let us Take Care of the Sorting for You
You just purchased a house. We understand how stressful that whole experience can be, and the last thing you want to do is go through your items and decide what you want to keep and what you want to toss. We are here to take on that daunting task.
Before you even begin to pack for your move, our team will personally go through each of your items and help you decide what you need and what you can toss. We will go through both of your current homes and first get rid of the items you don’t need such as duplicate wedding gifts, older dishes/pots, broken appliances, etc. For example, if you know your significant other has a nice, functioning microwave, there is no need for you to bring yours. By taking inventory of both of your items, we can help determine what you need to keep, donate, or toss.
Our goal in doing this is to make sure that you are starting off with a clean slate in your new home; we don’t want you to bring anything that you don’t need. We want your new home to be filled with only the items that bring you joy, convenience, and structure. By eliminating the old clutter, you can truly appreciate the cleanliness and organization of your new home.
3. We will Pack and Unpack
After we figure out what you will be taking to your new home, we can help box everything up. Our team will make sure to pack your items with care and in an effective way where we avoid the possible breaking of items.
Please trust the true professionals when it comes to packing; not your own knowledge. Our team members know the ins and outs of packing for big moves. For example, we aren’t going to put heavy books in a big box; instead, we are going to put them in a smaller box so it is easier to carry into the home. We won’t stack dishes on top of each other; we will make sure they are upright and fashioned with newspaper to avoid breakage. Packing, as silly as it sounds, is truly a work of art.
We know how some people like to procrastinate on unpacking when they move into a new home; sometimes boxes sit in a room for weeks on end! Instead of leaving this to you, we will take care of the unpacking and sorting right then and there. We will get everything done in a timely manner so that boxes don’t stay unpacked in the rooms of your home.
Our team will also personally put away all of your items in a practical and organized manner. We will make sure that everything has a “home” in your new home. We will take the time to go through each room and item and make sure everything has a proper function and a proper place. For example, if you have a favorite mug collection, we will make sure to display this collection in a way that not only honors it but also gives it function (like right next to the fancy coffeemaker you got as a wedding gift!)
Imagine moving and not having to worry about purging your items, packing your stuff unpacking and organizing …doesn’t it sound like a true fairy tale? Thankfully, the Me In Order experts are here to take away the stress and anxiety that can be caused when two households come together.
