Just the idea of occupying your newly-purchased house brings pure joy.

But along this happiness, do you know that moving into your new house can bring all sorts of stress to you. Here's a checklist to help you avoid those monstrous stress.
Buy boxes and storages several weeks or days before the scheduled move-in.
During spare time, pack your stuff according to importance. Some of them might be better on storages even after several days of occupying the new house.
Envelop glasses and other fragile items with old newspapers or other used papers. When putting them in boxes, stuff the boxes with pares too. They can prevent the items from shaking up and being broken.
Don't forget to put labels on boxes and storages. It will help you later to identify which things are in which boxes.
Keep an inventory of the boxes for later reference. It will be helpful in tracking your things and to determine if they are complete.
Sort out things - some can be thrown away, sold to junkyards, given to charities or neighbors, or sold into a garage sale.
Book moving services ahead of time, especially during peak season to avoid hassles and delays.
Ensure that the moving company has insurance.
