Moving can be an exciting time, as we've learned from all the people we've helped over the years. It's also an opportunity to minimize clutter in your new living space. Begin by learning a few organizing tips for your move, which may also help you create an orderly environment in your new home. 

  • Start with a moving timeline and checklist. Whether it's your first move or your 21st, there may be something on our moving timeline and/or relocation checklist you haven’t thought of.

  • Get a notebook. To keep track of everything related to your move, get a notebook and start writing. Record everything from new neighbors' phone numbers to handyman appointments. Keep your real estate agent's business card and any receipts from movers. You can even keep fabric swatches and paint samples in the notebook, too. 

  • Take time to label. One of the best ways to keep track of your belongings is to label everything. You can mark your moving boxes with their new destination, like "dining room," "bedroom," etc. You can even label a couple of boxes with "donate" or "trash" so they won't get mixed up with the things you're moving. This makes unpacking a breeze and gives movers direction when bringing things into your new home.

  • Save the essentials for last. You can create an "essentials" box filled with things you may need as soon as you move in. A few plates, cups, silverware, toilet paper, hand soap, scissors, flashlight, garbage bags and a shower curtain may come in handy.

  • Create a calendar. You can use a calendar or dry/erase board to keep track of appointments and other aspects of your move. This may include hotel reservations, home inspections, moving company walk-throughs, change of address notifications and when to contact your utility companies.

  • Turn on the lights. And air conditioning, too, if you're headed to a new home in Texas. Getting the electricity turned on before your move-in day is one organizing tip you can't overlook.

Schedule electric service for the day before your move. As the #1 choice for electricity in Texas, TXU Energy has what you need to get your home up and running. Check out our energy plans and find the one that's right for you.
