Once the whole moving day is over, you have some very important tasks to take care of. The very first thing to do is unpacking but this is followed by a bunch of things that must be done like changing your postal address or a quick inspection of the new place.
You should also find the most suitable health care providers for both humans and pets, find a new school for your children (if you have any), register your car in the new state you are in, and the list goes on endlessly.
All of this is quite practical and the first thing to come to mind but still you can find some very unusual tasks that people do. For some people, they are important, and for others a bit weird.

Now, let’s start with some unusual tasks after moving to a new house that folks do.
Bring the good luck in and the bring out the negative energy
Starting this new chapter in your life could begin with a sprinkle of good luck, so some people do little rituals to bring the luck in. Some say that bringing your old broom to the new house transfers all of the bad luck and negative energy from the old house. If you don’t have a broom, then buy a new one, and don’t throw out your vacuum cleaner. If the vacuum cleaner replaces the broom, you can simply clean its container or change its dust bag as a nod to the superstition.
Another thing to do is to get some salt and bread in the home, so you may never go hungry and that your new life is filled with flavor. Salt and bread are also known as symbols of fortune, success, and wealth.
You should also take care of the lingering bad energy left by previous owners in your new house. A thing you can do is light a candle. The flame is thought to get rid of negative energy and purify the new place from all evil vibes. Burning sage and sprinkling some salt on the floor and window sills of the house can also be good rituals to do to block away from all bad spirits and forces.
Pro tip: after taking away all bad energy and bringing in the good one, you can do some practical tasks like securing your home with new locks, burglar alarms, smoke detectors, and child-proofing the house if you have a child.
Say Hello to Your New Neighbourhood
The very last thing on the list is to say hello to your new neighbors, and ask them where the best stores, restaurants, pubs, and parks are. You can get together for a barbecue, organize a housewarming party and invite your friends andcolleagues.
It would be such an event and everyone will have fun. Just start off the new home with a nice party and lots of smiles.
We wish you a happy move and when in doubt, just call residential movers like the H2H Movers team to help!
