Get moving boxes from your local liquor store

Pay a visit to your local liquor store (that’s where you can buy the aforementioned wine) to see if they recycle their used boxes. If so, ask if you can grab a handful so you’re saving a little paper in your moving journey.

Just make sure the boxes are very gently worn and that you only use them to hold lightweight items like linens and towels. You don’t want to deal with ripped boxes and broken valuables on the big day.

Moving With Kids: How to Keep Them Happy and Occupied

The Big Move didn’t sound so overwhelming at first. Donate all your extra stuff, organize and pack what’s left — no biggie. But now your toddler’s wailing about how he’ll miss his friends and your daughter is going ballistic about starting a new school, which makes you feel like throwing a tantrum yourself.

 Moving can be tough on kids, particularly if you’re leaving the only home they’ve ever known. So before the moving truck arrives, step back from the boxes and focus on making this transition a good one for your little ones.

  1.  Give them a sense of control.
  2. Ask them for “help.”
  3. Make the new place feel like home.

Get It Sold: 10 Tips From a Home Staging Pro

ThinkstockPhotos-80719906.jpg

They say you only get one chance at a first impression. So if would-be buyers have already sidestepped your bursting-at-the-seams closet or shuddered at your dreary laundry room, you can’t undo it — but you can do some strategic home staging before the next house-hunter shows up.

Barb Nazzaro, a professional house stager who runs A Simply Staged Home, in Natick, Massachusetts, insists that it’s essential to stage. “When people walk into a house, they form an opinion almost instantaneously.” There’s a knee-jerk reaction that happens, she says; within seconds, buyers either adore the place or want to flee. And while homes in hot neighborhoods may sell themselves, Nazzaro says any home can benefit from staging to bump up the asking price and help speed a sale.

“People see gorgeous homes on television and want exactly that for themselves,” Nazzaro says. And, she adds, just as you wouldn’t wear sweatpants to a job interview, your home needs to put its best foot forward. Moving represents a fresh start, and if your home isn’t clean and doesn’t evoke a peaceful feeling, potential buyers will bail.

Here’s how to make your house gorgeous for its time in the spotlight:

1. Purge the hallway closet.

2. Edit the china cabinet.

3. Liven up the laundry room.

4. Tidy the kitchen cabinets.

5. Scale back on photos and wall hangings.

6. Add a bed skirt.

7. …And while you’re at it, change your comforter or duvet.

8. Round up the kid stuff.

9. Beautify bedroom closets.

10. Don’t forget the basement and the attic.
