Valentine’s Day Sneaks Up On The Best Of Us

February 14, 2014

images (11)Here’s just a few tips on how to make the best of a move during Valentine’s Day:

1. There’s Nothing More Romantic than Candlelit Dinner on the Floor, Really

Romantics are suckers for this one and when you’re moving into a new place the “table has already been set” for this romantic gesture. Movies and TV shows have been delivering this scene for decades – a couple moves into a humble new place, they have no lofty possessions other than their love for one another, and one surprises the other with candles strategically placed on the hardwood floor as they sit face to face on a picnic blanket and dine on take-out. Get into your new place early to set the stage and host a romantic candlelight dinner on the floor before unpacking a thing.

2. Hide a Gift in One of the Moving Boxes

Even though you are in the middle of a hectic relocation that is no excuse to skip the Valentine’s Day gift giving. Pretend that you forgot or simply did not have the time to get anything all the while smirking to yourself because within one of the boxes marked “FRAGILE” you have placed a retail token of your affection in one of the moving boxes. Ask the recipient to fetch something from the box and watch them saunter over in an irritated (because you “forgot” Valentine’s Day) manner only to be surprised when peeling back the cardboard flap. You’re in good graces for weeks after that.

No matter how well you’ve packed and planned for the day of the relocation you will still be neck deep in moving boxes, unless you consider this option. Secure a convenient storage locker located near your new abode and stuff the non-essentials within for the remainder of the month (at least) so that moving day (Feb 14th) is free and clear for you and your loved one to enjoy without being surrounded by boxes and odds & ends.

4. Give the Gift of Professional Movers

While securing storage will relieve much of your Valentine’s Day relocation concern, nothing will do the job quite like bringing in a professional mover to take on the bulk of the job. By having a professional mover as your official Valentine’s Day moving “concierge” you two can escape to dinner and a movie soon after taking possession of your new home.
