Tips for moving out of the house for graduation

You’ve put in the work and, finally, have your college degree. Congratulations! It’s a big deal! But if you’re like 36 percent of new graduates, you’re planning on moving home to get your finances in order, save money, and plan your next steps. It’s nothing to be ashamed of, but it can mean you’ll go through a bit of an adjustment period. Your trusted movers in Denver want to help. Here are a few simple tips to make moving home after graduation as pleasant as possible.

Have a Talk About Boundaries

Your parents love you and want the best for you, but they’ll still view you as their child. This can make you feel uncomfortable after being on your own for the last few years. Before you move in, discuss boundaries with your parents. Find out what they’re willing to tolerate and what they won’t accept. Remember, it is still their house, and as an adult, you’re expected to respect that. But that doesn’t mean you can’t expect a certain degree of respect for yourself.

Start Planning for the Future

Moving home saves you money, but that doesn’t mean you’ll want to stay there for long. Before you move back home, start making plans for your future. Figure out what you need to do to get your own apartment, start looking for a job if you don’t have one, and don’t hesitate to ask your parents for advice.

In California, you can visit:

  • Alcatraz Island, San Francisco
  • Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve, Lancaster
  • Monterey and Carmel
  • Big Sur
  • The San Francisco Botanical Garden, San Francisco

Rent a Storage Unit

You’ve probably got furniture of your own, but your parent’s house won’t have space for it. Instead of trying to cram everything into your childhood bedroom, put those larger items in a storage unit. Once you’re ready to move out on your own, you’ll be able to pick those items up. But until then, you’ll spare yourself the headache of living in a cluttered space.

Start Saving Immediately

The more money you have saved up, the sooner you’ll be able to move out on your own. The minute you move home and start working, start saving what you can. If your new job isn’t enough, look for ways to make money on the side. Pick up a freelance gig with a flexible schedule, ask for more hours with your current employer, and save that extra income for a security deposit on a place of your own. If that place ends up being far away from home, work with a professional moving team to relocate your belongings. This can save you money on the cost of the move and spares you the stress of moving on your own.

Moving home can be stressful, but these tips should help make things feel a bit easier. Once you’re ready to move out on your own, drop us a line and get a free estimate for your upcoming move. We can even store your belongings while you search for the perfect place to call home. When the time comes, we’ll get your belongings to your new home safely so you can focus on enjoying your life as a new grad.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
