Moving during the holidays can be stressful, and at EZ Storage® in Pittsburgh, we’re here to help however we can. As you’re unpacking boxes, arranging furniture, and getting the house in order, there may be some things that you want to put into self-storage, at least for a few months. We can provide you with the perfect unit for a month or two, so you can focus on getting settled and enjoying the holiday season. Visit one of our locations today to learn more!

In this post, we’ll take a look at some ways that you can get settled and get prepared for the holidays, even after you’ve just moved to a new place. Hopefully, these tips will help you feel a little less stressed this year!

Get the Bedrooms in Order

One of the best things you can do after moving in is to get the bedrooms in order. You obviously need somewhere to sleep, and getting the beds put together and the dressers and wardrobes in place can help you feel more at home. You can leave boxes in the living room, dining room, or garage, and work on unpacking over the next few weeks. Since you’ll have space in your dressers and closets, you can put clothes in them as you unpack.

You’ll also want to get any guest rooms in order, just in case you have any visitors coming for the holidays. Friends and relatives should understand that you just moved in, but having a guest room that’s ready can make them feel more at home as well. They may even pitch in and help you unpack and get settled!

Put up Your Decorations

If you love the holidays, then you might feel a little sad about the fact that you won’t be able to decorate the house like you normally do. You might not be sure about where best to put your decorations, but it can make a big difference to hang a few things around the house. You can also make it a priority to put your holiday decorations into the moving truck last so that they’re the first things to be unloaded! By putting up the tree or finding a spot in the window for the menorah, you can make the house feel a little more like home.

You can also go the full nine yards and make decorating for the holidays a priority. By hanging lights, putting up tinsel, and doing everything else you normally do, you can make things feel more routine and easily transform your house into a place where you and your family feel comfortable.
