Put the fun back into moving house with these handy tips
Moving is a fun, exciting, and chaotic adventure. There are so many tasks that have to be checked off before you can say that you have officially moved. You have to sell you old home and buy your new home. You have to pack up all of your belongings and have the removal company move your boxes and furniture into your new home. Also, you have to make sure that you have forwarded all of your bills and mail. Finally, you have to unpack your belongings and arrange your furniture so that you make your new home look just like you want it to.
After you have settled into your new house, it will be time to officially announce your move. There are some fun and unique ways to do this so that others can celebrate this fun, new adventure with you.
One fun moving announcement you can do is sending out moving announcement cards in the mail. You can order pre-made moving announcement cards and then personalize them with your new information. Another option, is to order personalized moving announcement cards with photos of your new place and your new information.
Another option for a fun moving announcement is to send out your moving announcement by email. Just like the printed moving announcement cards, you can personalize them how you want them. But, you don’t have to pay postage to send them in the email.
You could also have a going away party, before you move. You don’t have to wait for someone to throw one for you. You can plan it, set it up and throw it for yourself. This will give you the opportunity to tell good friends goodbye, especially if you are moving far away. You can invite as many or as few friends as you want to your going away party. You can send out printed invitations to your going away party or you can send out email invitations, depending on the crowd and their computer usage.
Postcards are another option to announce your move. You can go to your local store or a gift store in your new city and find fun postcards that show off your new hometown. Then, you can write a personalized note with your new information on each one.
If you decide not to have a going away party, then you can hold a housewarming party at your new home. You can send out printed invitations or you can email invitations so that your friends can have your new address. On your invitation, you can feature a photo of your new home. That way, when your friends and family drive to your party, they will have an easier time finding you. Then you can show off your new home to your friends and family when they come to celebrate with you at your party.
Another fun moving announcement is to make a moving video. You can be as creative as you want with this announcement. This is an announcement that you can do before you move or after you have moved and gotten settled in. If you do a video announcement before you move, you can show people the boxes and the chaos, then tell them the exciting news of your move and let them know where your new address will be. If you do a video announcement after you move, you can take your camera around the house and give them a virtual tour.
Of course, you could always take to social media to let your friend and loved ones know of your move, also. Again, this option is one that you can personalize. You could post a photo collage of your move from start to finish for people to view. You could post a virtual tour of your new home. You could even post a photo collage of your family in each room of your new home. If you choose to go the route of social media, just make sure that you are taking the necessary precautions to make sure that you don’t put your address into the wrong people’s hands and make yourself and your new home vulnerable to unnecessary distress.
As you can see, there are many creative moving announcement ideas. It is going to be up to you to decide which moving announcement is going to be the best one for you to send out. This will depend on your personality, how much time and effort you want to put into your announcement and your friends and family members personalities. Choose the one that sounds like the most fun to you. Or, you can even do a combination of more than one announcement to put your own twist on it. The most important part is that you have fun with your moving announcement.
