Just Moved Home? The Things To Get Sorted

When it comes to moving house, there is no denying that it is stressful. Initially you have the whole 
buying and selling process to navigate. Organising mortgages and deposits, making sure they are 
sorted and things get paid on time. Then you have the actual move to contend with. Boxes everywhere, 
a big removal van to loaned and the unload again, and then getting settled in to your new home but 
with it comes a sense of unknown as you get yourself acquainted. There is a lot to think about, but 
once you are in you might think that things can calm down a little. But you are wrong. There are still 
things that you will need to organise, think about and get sorted, so here are some of them to help you 
get started.


Finding out what is local to you

When you move home, the chances are you are moving to a new location and area. It may be a new 
village or town perhaps, which means that you might not be familiar with what is local to you. It could 
be a good idea to start thinking about exploring the locality. Maybe finding out the local supermarket or 
the shops, the restaurants or decent take out options. Generally getting out and looking around can be 
the best way to do this.

Switching the bills over to the new address

Admin never stops when you move house and while you think you have finished thanks to the 
mortgage being sorted etc, you will still need to think about the ongoing bills. Getting these changed 
over from your previous address is a task that sounds moe daunting than it actually is. In some cases, 
the providers can take over accounts at your new place, and all you need to do is provide the new 
address and let it happen. It might be easier to do this.

Organising the rooms and their uses

A new house means new possibilities, and that can often be associated with the way you design the 
living space. Where do you want to sit in a morning? Does your kitchen have a dining area? Can you 
create a playroom for your children? Who will have what bedroom? The options are endless and while 
it may have been set up in a particular way when you first bought the house, it doesn’t mean that you 
have to use it this way in the future.

Getting those home improvements organised and prioritised

One of the biggest things when it comes to moving house is the overwhelming feeling of wanting to 
change things. It might be the wall colours, it could be a new kitchen or bathroom. It might be time to 
start making a note of all the home improvements you want to make and then prioritise them by budget, 
timescale and when you are likely to be able to complete them. Some tasks will cost more than others, 
so this is when you may need to look at something like Evolution Money's homeowner loans to help 
take on the bigger tasks. Prioritising the jobs will help you stay accountable and also motivated to make 
the savings and changes needed.


Postal redirection

You may have thought about switching over your bills, but have you considered a postal redirection? 
We all get post in the mail that isn't necessarily directed to a bill. It could be a birthday card, it might be 
a letter from someone who lives abroad, it could just be a flyer offering up a new deal, but you won’t 
want to miss out on it. So make sure you organise a postal redirection. Even if you only do it for a few 
months it wil help to prompt you to make the changes to your address with companies you may not 
have called yet.

Getting family members settled in

Part of moving home means that you will need to get your family members settled in. This could be a 
new school or nursery for children, or generally getting older kids settled into high school or clubs they 
want to join. It can be a big transition at first, so make sure you spend time getting this sorted.

Working out a commute to work

A new home means that you live in anew area, with new traffic and routes to work. So it will be a good 
idea for you to sort out your commute to work. Take time before needing to do it to ensure that you have 
a route mapped out. It is always going to be a good idea to talk to people about where you need to 
travel to as they may be able to help you with backstreet shortcuts or inform you about traffic or road 
works to avoid. The last thing you want is to arrive to work stressed out before your day has even 
begun.

Researching local events

It will always be a good idea to research local events and see what is going on close to home. Being 
part of the community will help you and the family to make acquaintances and even friends. Talk to 
your neighbours, speak to people while out and about and even check local Facebook pages and 
groups to see what is going on. It can also be a great way to help you when it comes to socialising and 
getting children settled into new environments and school.

Joining a gym or attending a class locally

Finally, you also need to think about yourself while moving to a new place. You may have left a 
friendship group behind, or your circumstances might have changed. Joining a gym or attending a local 
class will give you the opportunity to socialise yourself and help you to make some friends in your new 
area. Sometimes taking this step can feel like it is out of your comfort zone, but it could be hugely 
beneficial for you.

Let’s hope that these tips help you when it comes to moving home and getting settled in.

Review Cerave Foaming Cleanser si Cerave Moinsturing Lotion

 Buna fetelor, Astazi vreau sa va scriu despre un brand descoperit anul trecut care imi place foarte mult pentru partea de ingrijire a pielii : Cerave. Cerave este un brand cu produse create impreuna cu dermatologi, care au dezvoltat o gama de produse fara iritanti, bazate pe ceramide similare pielii pentru a oferi o varianta de ingrijire care reface bariera pielii si a oferi hidratare pentru o perioada mai lunga. Ceramidele formeaza bariera de protectia a pielii, mentin hidratarea si compun 50% din stratul de lipide. Gelul de curatare pentru piele normala si grasa Cerave (Foaming Cleanser) este produsul care mi se potriveste cel mai bine pentru a-mi curata tenul dimineata si seara. Contine trei ceramide esentiale, acid hialuronic, elimina excesul de sebum , curata usor si profund impuritatile si machiajul, nu blocheaza porii. Pentru machiajul ochilor, recomand totusi sa folosim apa micelara inainte. Formula este fara parfum deci este potrivita si pentru tenul sensibil.Mie im

Review: Cleanse & Care Eye Make-up Remover Boots No7

 Am demachiantul acesta de cateva luni si imi place sa-l folosesc , cred ca e demachiantul meu bifazic preferat.  Are o consistenta apoasa , usor uleioasa si curata bine pana si machiajul rezistent la apa. Testul suprem a fost cu un eyeliner waterproof de la Essence care trece foarte greu , insa cu acest demachiant nu am avut probleme.  Eu agit foarte bine flaconul, pun cateva pompite de demachiant pe o discheta si sterg machiajul ochilor .Nu imi agaseaza ochii , nu trebuie sa insist tare. Deseori l-am folosit si pentru ten si curata bine , pot sa spun ca imi simtean tenul usor hidratat de la uleiul continut.  Imi place si ca formula este fara parfum , testata oftalmologic, hipoalergenica, potrivita pentru ochii sensibili .  Singurul minus ar fi pretul mai mare decat al celorlalte demachiante bifazice folosite de mine, in jur de 35 de lei. Pompita este perfecta pentru dozarea produsului , cateva pompite imi sunt deajunse pentru ambii ochi.  Din cateva miscari s-a luat
