8 Post-Moving Day Tips For a Stress-Free Move

There are tons of checklists and moving company reviews to help you prepare for a move, but once the furniture and boxes make it into your new home, the moving help is done for the day, and everyone is exhausted, it can all feel a little overwhelming. We’ve prepared a short guide to help de-stress unpacking and get you settled into your new home.

1. Build breaks into your plan. Make your dinner ahead or plan to order takeout. Expect to need a trip to the store on moving day, the day after moving day, and a week after moving day. Despite the best planning, things come up.

2. First things first – if you’ll be living there from day one, the first order of business is to set up the beds and get one bathroom set up that everyone can use.


3. Plan before you start unpacking. You’ll want to plan how you’ll unpack, which rooms to tackle first, how to organize the drawers, and the end date when the last box will be unpacked. Include shopping for window treatments, rugs, and organizers when looking over your timeline. And don’t over-schedule yourself, enjoy the process of settling into your new home.


4. Within the first week, make your emergency plan, map out your fire escapes, locate or purchase fire extinguishers and blankets, and check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Get your first aid kits and flashlights in place and stock the basement or shelter with bottled water, snacks, batteries, and a weather radio.


5. Within the first two weeks take a good look around inside and outside your new home. Note anything broken or worn, potential dangers, leaks or drainage issues, electrical concerns, and any sharp, pointing things. Note the HVAC service schedule, the age of the water heater, and any other home mechanicals. Start making your maintenance plan.


6. Now that you’ve moved into your new home, explore your new neighborhood. Locate nearby grocery, hardware, pharmacy, fuel, parks and trails, banks, hospitals, and walk-in clinics.


7. Wrap up the details. Change the locks, get spare keys made, check that you’re set up with all the utilities and service providers you need, send thank you notes to friends and family who helped you out, and help your kids memorize your new address.


8. Host a housewarming party! Moving into a new home is a big life event and you’ll want to celebrate!

A Comprehensive Guide to Welcoming the New Season

As the grip of winter loosens its hold and nature begins to stir, gardeners everywhere eagerly anticipate the arrival of spring. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll explore everything you need to know to prepare your garden and outdoor spaces for the season of renewal. From early spring flowers to essential garden tasks, let’s dive into the beauty and abundance that spring has to offer.

Getting Your Garden Ready:

As winter fades and spring approaches, it’s time to start planning and preparing your garden for the growing season. Begin by assessing your garden space, considering factors such as sunlight exposure, soil quality, and plant compatibility. Take inventory of your gardening tools and supplies, and make any necessary repairs or replacements.

Essential Spring Garden Tasks:

With the arrival of spring, there are several important tasks to tackle in the garden. Start by pruning trees, shrubs, and perennial plants to promote healthy growth and remove any dead or damaged branches. Prepare garden beds by loosening the soil, adding compost or organic matter, and addressing any pH imbalances. Apply a layer of mulch to help conserve moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature.

Seed Starting and Planting:

Spring is the perfect time to start sowing seeds indoors for vegetables, herbs, and flowers that require an early start. Gather supplies such as seed trays, potting soil, and grow lights, and begin sowing seeds according to their specific requirements. As the weather warms, transplant seedlings outdoors and directly sow seeds for warm-season crops.

Pest and Disease Management:

As temperatures rise, pests and diseases may become more active in the garden. Stay vigilant and monitor plants for signs of trouble, such as insect damage or fungal infections. Consider using natural pest control methods and practicing good sanitation to prevent problems before they arise.

Celebrating Spring:

As you prepare your garden and outdoor spaces for spring, take time to appreciate the signs of nature’s renewal all around you. Spend time outdoors, go for nature walks, and embrace the sense of joy and rejuvenation that comes with the changing season. With a little planning and effort, you can create a garden oasis that celebrates the beauty and abundance of spring.

As winter fades away and spring emerges in all its glory, there’s no better time to reconnect with nature and revel in the wonders of the season. Whether you’re planting early spring flowers, tending to garden tasks, or simply enjoying the sights and sounds of the natural world, there’s something truly magical about this time of year. So, embrace the arrival of spring with open arms, and let the beauty and abundance of the season inspire you to create a garden oasis that blooms with life and vitality. There are numerous trails and other opportunities to witness the welcoming outdoor landscape across Central Virginia.

Creating Unforgettable Holiday Traditions: From Muddy Adventures to Neighborhood Movie Nights

The holiday season is a opportunity for joy, warmth, and the creation of cherished traditions. Many of us hold dear the memories of family gatherings, festive decorations, and the unmistakable scent of a freshly cut Christmas tree. However, sometimes the most unforgettable traditions are the ones we create ourselves, forging bonds with both family and neighbors that last a lifetime.

As a child, my family and I faced the challenge of finding the perfect Christmas tree while juggling the demands of various sports commitments. The local Christmas tree lot in the heart of town became our go-to destination, offering convenience and a festive atmosphere. One particular year, a rainy and muddy evening turned what might have been a simple tree-buying expedition into a memory that would shape our family traditions for years to come.

With my brothers and me in tow, we ventured into the lot, the rain adding a touch of adventure to our quest for the perfect tree. As we navigated through the trees, the mud underfoot turned the evening into a playful escapade. In the midst of the raindrops and laughter, we spontaneously began a game of hide and seek tag, weaving through the rows of trees like woodland adventurers.

The joy of that muddy hide and seek game became etched in our hearts, and it was on that rainy evening that a new tradition was born. The process of selecting our Christmas tree transformed from a routine task into a festive family adventure, eagerly anticipated each year. The laughter and camaraderie we shared among the evergreen branches became the essence of our holiday season kickoff.

Fast forward to the present day, where the spirit of creating new traditions continues with the younger generation in our family. This year, my creative eleven-year-old daughter decided to add a modern twist to our holiday celebrations. Inspired by the magic of the season and the desire to connect with our neighbors, she proposed projecting a holiday movie onto our garage door and inviting everyone on our street to join us for hot cocoa and a cozy movie night.

This Friday, our garage will be transformed into an outdoor cinema, with the glow of string lights and the aroma of hot cocoa filling the air. As we gather with our lovely Lake of the Woods neighbors, we will not only be creating a new holiday tradition but also strengthening the bonds of community. The simple act of sharing a movie and a warm drink under the starry winter sky brings us closer together, fostering a sense of unity and belonging.

In the midst of our busy lives, it’s these unique and personal traditions that make the holiday season truly magical. From muddy hide and seek adventures to neighborhood movie nights, these traditions become the threads that weave the fabric of our family and community life, creating lasting memories and strengthening the ties that bind us together. So, this holiday season, take a cue from our story and consider starting your own new traditions – ones that reflect the spirit of togetherness, joy, and the magic of the season.

The Gift of Giving During the Holiday Season

As the holiday season approaches, the spirit of giving becomes more prevalent, reminding us of the joy that comes from selflessly helping those in need. One of the most heartwarming ways to spread cheer is by donating unwrapped gifts for children who may not experience the same abundance during Christmas. In this blog post, we’ll explore the profound rewards of giving, even when faced with financial constraints and shed light on the Orange County Children’s Toy Box initiative—a wonderful opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children in need.

The Joy of Giving:

There’s a timeless adage that says, “It is better to give than to receive,” and during the holiday season, this sentiment rings truer than ever. While the act of giving might seem small to some, its impact can be immeasurable, both for the giver and the receiver. Regardless of financial circumstances, the act of giving evokes a sense of fulfillment and purpose, creating a ripple effect of positivity in the community.

Even when faced with financial challenges, contributing to those less fortunate can be a transformative experience. It allows us to shift our focus from what we lack to what we can provide, fostering a sense of gratitude and compassion. In the act of giving, we find a unique kind of joy—a joy that transcends material possessions and embodies the true spirit of the holiday season.

Orange County Children’s Toy Box:

One remarkable initiative that embodies the spirit of giving is the Orange County Children’s Toy Box. This heartwarming project aims to collect unwrapped gifts for children in Orange County who may not otherwise have the opportunity to experience the magic of opening a present on Christmas day. By contributing to this cause, you become a beacon of hope and joy for a child in need.

Drop-off Location: Licata Group Office

One of the convenient drop-off locations for the Orange County Children’s Toy Box is the Licata Group office, located just outside Lake of the Woods beside the Food Lion. The Licata Group has graciously opened its doors to receive your unwrapped gifts and help make this holiday season memorable for local children.

Cut-off Date and Contact Information:

To ensure that your donations reach the deserving recipients in time for Christmas, please make sure to drop off your unwrapped gifts at the Licata Group office by December 10th, 2023. Our office hours are Monday-Friday from 9:00am-5:30pm. For more details on donation options or to inquire about specific gift ideas, feel free to contact the office at 540-388-2541.

As we immerse ourselves in the holiday spirit, let’s remember that the true magic lies in giving. Whether you have much or little, the act of contributing to the Orange County Children’s Toy Box is an opportunity to make a lasting impact on a child’s life. Let’s come together as a community, embody the spirit of generosity, and unwrap the joy that comes from giving during this festive season.

In closing, our heartfelt gratitude extends to the Lions and Lioness Club for perpetuating this selfless tradition of giving. Their unwavering commitment and dedication ensure that the spirit of generosity continues to brighten the lives of countless children in Orange County. Together, we celebrate their invaluable contributions and the enduring impact they make on our community, spreading joy and warmth during the holiday season.

Especially when you’re going to be outdoors for a considerable time, it’s crucial to ensure that you store everything in a safe place. Packing your belongings for storage in a day might seem daunting, but it can be quite manageable with a little organization and the right storage solutions.
