Your Guide to Surviving a Los Angeles Move During the Holidays
December 5, 2015
Relocating to Los Angeles can be exciting, but during the holidays it can also be stressful. It is possible to have an enjoyable holiday season and a hassle-free move at the same time — here’s how:
- Enlist Help — The holidays are a hectic time. Although your friends and family might be happy to help you move, they’re probably as busy as you are. The Beltmann Relocation Group can save your holidays — we offer full-service moving packages that will leave you with plenty of free time to enjoy the season.
- Dine Out — Plenty of L.A. restaurants offer incredible holiday menus, so dine out instead of cooking this year. Scarpetta is one such restaurant, with a December holiday menu that includes a raw bar, leg of lamb, sausage stuffing, and an array of pasta dishes. If you’d prefer to eat at home, consider catering or takeout to keep cooking — and the subsequent cleanup — to a minimum.
- Keep it Simple — This holiday season, keep everything as simple as possible. Getting settled into a new home takes time; so don’t overstress yourself with holiday preparations. Even minimal decorations are still festive; a little goes a long way. When it comes to gift-giving, propose a gift exchange to your loved ones. Everyone draws a name then buys for that person, cutting down on the amount of shopping each family member has to do.
- Stay Connected — If there are loved ones you won’t get to see this holiday season, stay connected to them through technology. Arrange Skype sessions with long-distance friends and family to keep the holiday blues at bay.
- Have Fun — Don’t forget to have fun this holiday season! It’s easy to become overwhelmed with both moving and holiday plans. Take some time to enjoy the season with your loved ones — certain tasks can wait until the holidays are over. Whether your idea of a good time is going out on the town, baking cookies at home, or settling in to watch a favorite holiday movie, make time for you.
