Moving Tips: Documenting the memories of your big move

Taking photos during the move may help you capture the memories of the event.

Taking photos during the move may help you capture the memories of the event.

Heading to a new home can be a big moment for a couple or a family, as it could be the destination you will spend most of your life. Naturally, many people like to take the effort to document it, and this can turn into quite the fun activity that could take a lot of stress away from the move.

Taking pictures of packing up the rooms may be a fun exercise, as you will not only capture the memories of the event, but you can also see how much stuff you had in the old dwelling, and then see it set up in the new one. In addition, you may enjoy focusing on before and after pictures of your old home, as they will likely be the last memories of that place you will have.

If your move involves a big road trip, you may also want to take photos of your ride. Stopping at landmarks may not only be fun to take a break from the monotony of driving, but these are memories that your family will remember as a part of the move.

When moving into the new home, taking pictures in the same way as your old home can give some extra perspective. You would be able to see your old home empty, and it may actually help you arrange things in these areas when you begin to unpack. Also, you will be able to document your new home filling up, which can show you how much you did.

It may be fun to make all of these items into a slideshow on your computer, or even make a scrapbook, so you will always have the memories of your move close at hand.

Also, you can even take video during your packing and unpacking. Giving each other interviews about how you feel about the move may make you feel better about it. Talking on-camera about any separation anxiety or excited anticipation about the new home can be both therapeutic and fun.

These are just some of the many things you can do when packing up your home to make the process go more smoothly, and with less frustration. Keep in mind, this should be a fun and exciting time for you and your family.
