Moving to Tulsa Can Be a Fresh Start 08/07/2018By Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group Whenever you move to a new locale, it is a chance to get a fresh start. You may not know anyone. While this could be worrisome in the beginning, it's also a chance to recreate who you are. You can explore all the fun things to do in Tulsa, find new social connections, and focus on becoming a better version of yourself. Get Organized Once you box up all of your things to move to Tulsa, you truly get to start from square one in your new residence. This is an opportunity to get things in order once and for all as you start to unpack all the cartons. If you have always pondered a new layout in your family room or bedroom, now is the time. You can change up the colors, the layout, and even get rid of certain things that you no longer need before you put them away. Remember, it's usually better to get rid of them prior to moving them – but this is a shot to get organized. Create "Me" Space As you unpack and maneuver your items around in your new home in Tulsa, make sure that you arrange a space just for you. This can be your cozy spot when you have had a crazy day. No matter if it is a "man cave" or a book nook in the family room, design an area that you will love spending time in. Do Something New Most people have things that we have always wanted to accomplish. Perhaps you have always wanted to audition for the community theater or enroll in dancing lessons. Once you are in your new city, go ahead and do it. Locate a studio or class that will assist you with the training. It's a chance to learn something fun and meet some new people while you are at it. Curb Bad Habits You could have a bad habit or two that you are not proud of. It might be that you do not clean your toilet often enough or that you smoked at your old house. Regardless what it is that you need to modify, now is the time to do it. You are in a new house, allowing you to start from scratch. If you don't want to fall into the same habits, make the choice to change. You may also want to leave yourself notes periodically so that you don’t forget why you are ditching those habits. Meet the Neighbors You might or might not know all the neighbors in your current area. 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 don't have to be besties but it can be beneficial to have someone who will look out for your home when you aren't there and vice versa. Don’t forget that moving to Tulsa is only as worrisome as you make it out to be. If you know that you are relocating to a new town with the ambition for a new beginning, it can be a positive boost. You may be excited to start a new part of your life in Tulsa. Create a to-do list for your home and for yourself so that you remember all of the things that you want to accomplish. Once you have officially settled in, you should then commence on that list. When you're ready to get your fresh start in a new town, contact us at A-1 Freeman Moving Group to get started on your move.
