Spring is in the air, and with that comes the promise of new beginnings. If you're preparing to embark on a move to our vibrant Lyric at RidgeGate™ community in Lone Tree, now is the perfect time to streamline your transition with a few spring cleaning and moving tips. Whether you're packing up your current home or planning your move into this beautiful neighborhood, read on to learn more about strategies that will help you start this exciting new chapter of your life on the right foot.
Declutter Before You Pack
Before you start packing, take a little time to declutter your belongings by going through each room of your home to identify items that you no longer use or need. Consider donating gently-used items to a local Colorado organization that aims to enhance the lives of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, like arc Thrift Stores — or host a yard sale to lighten your load. By decluttering before you pack, you'll save time and energy during the moving process and ensure that you're only bringing the essentials to your dreamy new home at Lyric™.

Streamline Your Spring Cleaning
Now that you've decluttered, optimize your spring-cleaning routine before diving into packing to ensure a fresh and organized start. Start by tackling one room at a time, simultaneously organizing and cleaning your space and belongings for a more efficient process. As you clean, take note of any maintenance or repairs that may be needed in your current home before you move out. This proactive approach will not only simplify your packing process, but also leaves your existing home in top condition for its next occupants! You’ll then be able to focus on all the good times in store for you at Lyric™.

Create a Packing Plan
Packing can quickly become overwhelming if you don't have a plan in place. Start by gathering all the necessary packing supplies — including boxes, tape, bubble wrap, and packing paper — then create a schedule that breaks down the process into manageable tasks. Begin by packing non-essential items and seasonal decor, saving everyday essentials for last. Label each box with its contents and the room it belongs in to make unpacking at your new Lyric™ home a breeze.

Pack a Moving Day Essentials Kit
As moving day approaches, pack a separate box or bag with essential items that you'll need on moving day and during your first few days in your new home — be sure to include toiletries, a change of clothes, important documents, snacks, and any medications you may need. Having these essentials easily accessible will help alleviate stress and ensure a smooth transition on the big day!

Schedule Services in Advance
Don't wait until the last minute to schedule essential services for your new Lyric™ home. Arrange for utilities to be transferred or set up new accounts in your name well in advance of your move-in date. Additionally, schedule any necessary moving services — such as professional movers or truck rentals — to guarantee that everything is in place for a seamless transition into the next chapter of your life.
