Are you considering relocating to a new state? Any move can be scary, whether you are moving to a neighboring state or one across the country. Moving alone to a new state can be daunting, but it can also help you grow personally, professionally, and financially. With some preparation, you can create an easy transition and set yourself up for success. Check out these tips to make your solo inter-state move your best yet!
Read Up on Everything
You are not the first to move out of your home state. Many people have made that kind of move before, and they want to help you! Check out online resources like Facebook groups, Reddit, and blogs for great tips. Also, explore those resources for information on moving to the specific area you are going to. You may learn something new and feel more familiar with your new environment. People in these online spaces are usually very forthcoming about their experiences and can’t wait to give you their recommendations for their favorite hot spots in town.
Look for Connections Everywhere
Moving alone to a new state can be lonely and isolating, but if you are open to trying new things, it can also help open you up to new experiences. Turn your solo hobbies into more social opportunities- join a knitting circle, a rock climbing group, or even a political action group. There is something for everyone’s interests. Again, go online to explore any existing groups in your area, and if there aren’t any already, don’t be afraid to create your own! There are tons in your area that are also looking for connections.
Similarly, if anyone invites you to an event, tag along! Did your coworker ask you to grab drinks? How about someone from your gym who wants you to visit a new museum with them? These are all great ways to get to know people and form those new connections, making your new town more fun!
Don’t Bring Too Much
You are getting a fresh start and looking ahead, so there is no need to bring everything from your past. Instead, go through your things and see what is essential and what will aid you in the future. Bring all your important documents like your birth certificate, passport, social security card, and tax documents. Do you have a lot of furniture to bring with you? Depending on how many heavy items you have to move and how far you are traveling, it might make economic sense to sell your things in your hometown. The money you make can go towards new furniture for your new place. Look into specials around town or even secondhand furniture through resources like Facebook Marketplace.
