1. Do Not Pack An Old Mop, Broom Or Vacuum To Your New Place

2. Light A Candle

When you first get into your new home, light a candle, whether it is scented or unscented doesn’t matter. The idea behind lighting a candle is to make your home more welcoming and cast out any darkness.

Of course, for many people, lighting their favorite scent is more about making their home feel like home because of the smell.
