Here are some packing tips from Better Homes & Gardens for your Christmas decorations: For those fragile and priceless Christmas ornaments, purchase an ornament organizer at a craft store with individual compartments for each ornament. Before placing an ornament in its compartment, wrap it with tissue paper. For Christmas wreaths, you can hang them on a clothes hanger and then cover them with a plastic bag from the dry cleaners or a trash bag. To keep your Christmas lights from getting tangled in storage, wrap them in a circle as you take them off the tree. Then secure them with a piece of wire or a pipe cleaner so they keep their shape.

The last thing you want to to slip while holding a heavy piece of furniture. Check your new home to make sure that heat is turned on several days before you move in. Lay cardboard or blankets on the floor to protect it from melting snow and ice. Make sure that you have plenty of layers of clothing on as you move, and prepare hot drinks for all of the helping hands that come to help you with your move. Before you begin your move, discuss winter weather policies with your moving company. That way, if a snow storm hits, you will know what your plan B is.

Do you want to rent or buy? How much space do you need? Where do you want to live? And of course, what can you afford? If you are looking to buy a home, your first stop should be the bank to see what kind of loan you can get. Don’t forget to tell them if you already have some savings that you can put towards a down payment. Once you have your budget figured out, you can start to investigate what sort of homes are available within that price range. The size of home you can afford will vary based on the age of the home, the area in which it is located, as well as the size of lot that comes with it. Once you find some homes that you like, it’s time to start viewing these homes in person. Keep in mind that when you’re looking for a home, you probably won’t find one that has everything on your checklist. That means that you will need to...

If you have clothing that you haven’t worn in years, or a box of knick-knacks that’s been hiding in the attic for years, perhaps you don’t need to take them with you.
