Moving to Tulsa Can Be a Fresh Start 08/07/2018By Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group When you move to a new city, it is a shot to get a fresh start. You may not know anybody. While this may be stressful at first, it's also a chance to work on who you are. You can explore all the awesome things to do in Tulsa, make new social connections, and concentrate on becoming a better version of you. Get Organized Once you pack up all of your stuff to move to Tulsa, you truly get to start from scratch in your new residence. This is the moment to get things in order once and for all as you begin to unpack all the cartons. If you have always thought about trying a new arrangement in your family room or bedroom, go for it. You can change up the colors, the arrangement, and even get rid of the things that you no longer need before you put them away. As a side note, it is always best to donate them before you even move them – but this is a shot to get organized. Create "Me" Space As you unpack and maneuver your things around in your new home in Tulsa, make sure that you arrange an area especially for you. This can be your safe haven when you have had an insane day. Whether it is a "man cave" or a book nook in the living room, create a space that you will love spending time in. Do Something New Most people have things that we have always wanted to accomplish. Maybe you have always wanted to learn more about local theater or take dancing lessons. Once you are in your new locale, go for it. Find a location or class that will assist you with the training. It is a chance to do something new and meet some new friends while you are at it. Stop Bad Habits You might have a bad habit or two that you are not fond of. It may be that you do not dust your furniture often enough or that you smoked in your old residence. Regardless what it is that you want to modify, now is the best time to begin. You are in a new home, allowing you to commence from scratch. If you do not want to be consumed with the same habits, make the decision to change. You might also want to write yourself notes periodically so that you don’t forget why you are curbing those habits. Meet the Neighbors You may or may not know all the neighbors in your current block. After you move, make sure that you put in the effort to meet your neighbors. Although some neighbors may make the first move to welcome you to the neighborhood, it’s ok for you to take the initiative. Meeting those who live next to you can be a great safety feature. You do not have to be best buddies but it can be opportune to have a contact who will watch out for your residence when you aren't there and vice versa. Don’t forget that moving to Tulsa is only as stressful as you make it out to be. If you know that you are moving to a new town with the desire for a new beginning, it can be a positive boost. You may be eager to get started on a new chapter in your life in Tulsa. Write out a to-do list for your home and for yourself so that you remember all of the tasks that you want to accomplish. Once you have officially moved in, you can then begin on that list. When you are ready to get your fresh start in a new city, contact us at A-1 Freeman Moving Group to get started on your move.
