Get to Know Your New Neighbors

If you’re moving this summer, then hopefully you’re excited about settling into your new neighborhood and meeting your new neighbors. You might be moving close to people you already know, or you may be relocating to a brand new part of the city. Whatever the case may be, it can be beneficial to invite your new neighbors over to get to know them and to make your family feel more comfortable in your new surroundings.

At EZ Storage® in Pittsburgh, we can help you find a self-storage unit for anything you need to store, especially as you’re settling into your new home. The sooner the house is organized, the sooner you can invite the neighbors over!

Focus on the Common Spaces

When you invite people over after you’ve moved in, you’ll want to be sure that the common spaces of the home are in order. This can include the living room, the kitchen, and the powder room or guest bathroom — anywhere that more than just your family will be or use. No one is going to be entering your bedroom or home office (unless, of course, you give them a tour of the house), and chances are that if your neighbors have lived in the area for awhile, they’ve been in the house before.

By focusing on the common spaces, you can get everything organized before visitors arrive. Any extra furniture that doesn’t fit in the living room can be put into storage, and those extra boxes of dishes for the kitchen can be stored as well. The powder room or guest bathroom likely isn’t very big, but you’ll still want to make sure it’s clean before inviting your neighbors over for a party.

Keep the Garage Clean

Since it is the summer, you may have the garage door open as you work on a car or start on those home remodeling projects. Since you just moved in, chances are that any extra boxes, empty or not, have found their way into the garage. Neighbors who are walking by may come up to introduce themselves when they see you working in the garage, so it can be important to keep the space clean and clear of clutter.

If you’re having lots of people over in order to get to know everybody, then you may set up tables and chairs in the garage, instead of trying to fit everyone in the dining room or the kitchen. Storing those extra boxes and other belongings can help you keep the garage clear and ready to go should lots of people show up.
