So, you’ve just moved into your beautiful new home in Cypress Green, what are you going to do with all those empty moving boxes? Turns out, there are a lot of things you can do. Here are 10 of them:

Sell Them

Want to do something easy and make some money? You can sell your gently used boxes. BoxCycle connects box buyers with box sellers so everyone wins. Are you on NextDoor? Let your new neighbors know you have moving boxes for sale.

Donate or Give Them Away

If the boxes are still in good condition, consider donating them to local charities, schools or community centers for use in art projects or storage. Alternatively, give them a good home with friends and relatives. You can also join the Freecycle Network, a non-profit organization whose mission is to keep useable items out of garbage dumps. List your moving boxes there.

Recycle

If all else fails, make sure to recycle the boxes. Many municipalities offer curbside recycling for cardboard, or you can take them to a local recycling center.

Packaging Material

Shred the cardboard into strips or pieces to use as eco-friendly packaging material for shipping or storing fragile items.

Kids’ Playhouse

Transform the boxes into a makeshift playhouse for children. They can decorate it with crayons, paint or stickers to personalize their own space.

Pet Projects

If you have furry friends, you can create pet homes for them. Construct a multi-level cat castle by stacking and connecting boxes. Larger boxes make great temporary dog houses for Fido. Cut holes for doors and windows and add blankets or cushions for comfort.

Art Projects

Use the cardboard as a canvas for art projects. Paint or draw on them, cut them into interesting shapes or even create a collage.

Garden Uses

Convert the cardboard into a compost bin for your garden. The cardboard provides carbon-rich material that balances out nitrogen-rich kitchen scraps. Flatten boxes and use them to kneel on while gardening. Smaller boxes can be used as temporary planters.

Insulation

Use flattened cardboard boxes as temporary insulation for windows during the colder months. They can help keep out drafts and retain heat.

DIY Furniture

Get creative and build your own furniture pieces like shelves, bedside tables or even a desk using the sturdy cardboard boxes as the base structure.

Moving into your new Cypress Green home is an exciting opportunity to create a space that reflects your personality and style. It can also be a challenge. Décor from your previous home might not work in your new one. Need help? Here are some easy ideas for decorating your new home:

Take Stock of What You Have

Artwork, linens, vases and other items that didn’t seem to work in your previous home could take on new life in your new one. Built-in shelves could showcase knickknacks that have been packed away. Framed posters could liven up a media room. Take stock of what you have before buying anything new.

Plant Life

Plants are an easy and inexpensive way to add color and freshness to your space. Choose plants that will thrive. Plants that need a lot of moisture benefit from being in your bathroom. If windows flood your home with light, find plants that do well in the sun. Potted plants are a good way to dress up your patio.

Treat Your Windows

Install curtains or drapes to add color and warmth to your rooms. Purchase inexpensive window coverings to use until you can afford something fancier. Invest in high-quality rods and finials so you don’t have buy different ones when you purchase better curtains.

Got Books?

If you’re a bookworm, you have the makings for easy décor. Put them on shelves interspersed with photos, art or vases. Oversized books look great on coffee tables. Stack books on end or decorator tables topped by a fake plant.

Lay Down Rugs

Area rugs can instantly transform a room. This is especially true if you have tile or wood floors. Choose rugs that complement your furniture and add a cozy element to your living space.

Create an Art Gallery

Create a gallery wall with framed photos, artwork or even mirrors. This is a great way to personalize your space and showcase your memories. You can also create your own artwork. This could be as simple as framing your favorite quotes, creating abstract paintings or framing interesting fabric.

Temporary Wallpaper or Decals

If you’re not ready for a long-term commitment, consider using temporary wallpaper or decals to add pattern and interest to your walls. Most of it goes up quickly and won’t damage paint.

Accent the Furniture

You may find your furniture needs an update, but if you can’t afford anything new, add throw pillows and blankets to your sofa or bed. This is a quick way to change the look of a room.

Welcome People Home

Create a welcoming entryway by adding a doormat, a few plants and maybe a small console table with a decorative bowl for keys. You’ll be happy to come home, and guests will comment on your decorating skills.

The first step on your journey to a beautiful new home in Cypress Green is paying a visit to our builders’ breathtaking model homes. Taking a thoughtful and thorough approach can help you make an informed decision when selecting a new home. Here are a few tips for making the most of your tour:

Schedule an Appointment

Cypress Green model homes are open daily. You can walk in, tour the home and speak with a sales representative. To make the most of your visit though, schedule an appointment with the builder or sales representative. You’ll get their undivided attention, as well as plenty of detailed information.

Bring Your Realtor

If you have a Realtor, bring them along. Realtors make it their business to learn everything there is to know about a community and the builders. They can also ask questions you may not have thought of.

Bring a Checklist

Create a checklist of features and specifications that are important to you in a new home. This can include the number of bedrooms, layout, kitchen features, storage space and any other specific requirements.

Don’t Rush

There’s no time limit when it comes to exploring a model home. Take your time to explore each room, paying attention to details and envisioning how you would use the space. Bring a notebook and write down any features you love and any that could be a potential problem. Better yet, snap some photos.

Note Upgrades

Model homes are showcase homes so many of the features you see are upgrades. It’s important to know what they are and how much they cost. That way you can decide if they are a must-have or something you can pass on.

Is There a Design Center?

Some builders have a design center in the model home where you can see samples of finishes and materials. Take the opportunity to explore these options and understand what customization choices are available.

There Are No Stupid Questions

Don’t hesitate to ask the builder or sales representative any questions you may have. Inquire about the materials used, customization options, warranties, schools and community amenities.

Examine Quality of Construction

Pay attention to the quality of construction and finishes. Look for signs of craftsmanship and durability in materials used for flooring, cabinets, countertops and other features.

You Can Never Have Too Much Storage

Homebuyers often forget to look at how much storage space a home has. Check out the cabinets and closets. Are there enough of them? Is there an attic? Think about your storage needs now and in the future.

Consider Your Lifestyle

Visualize how the home’s layout and features align with your lifestyle. Consider factors such as family size, entertaining needs and any future plans you may have.

Moving is stressful. Add in the holidays and you might not be feeling very festive. Instead of focusing on the negatives, focus on the excitement of starting a new chapter in your new Cypress Green home. To help with the stress, here are some tips for planning a smooth move during the holidays:

Try Not to Move Before Christmas

No one wants to spend Christmas living out of boxes. If possible, plan to move the week between Christmas and the new year. You will feel less stressed. You can also pack up your holiday decorations and put them in storage in your new home.

Plan Ahead

Keep two calendars. The first lists important dates for your move such as changing over utilities, what to pack and when and hiring movers. The second lists your holiday obligations. If you can, reduce your list of holiday activities. This will give you more time to pack.

Declutter and Donate

Moving and the holidays are both great times to declutter. As you pack, go through your stuff and set aside things you don’t want or need in your new home. Donate your gently used items to a thrift store.

Take Your Time

Take your time to pack so you don’t feel overwhelmed and rushed. Pack closets, spare rooms and the garage first. Summer clothes, rarely used small kitchen appliances and that collection of mugs on the top shelf of the cupboard can also go into boxes.

Hire Professional Movers

Hiring professional movers will free up time for you to enjoy the holidays. Many moving companies offer lower rates and discounts in December. Use the money you save to add on packing assistance, freeing up even more time.

Create Two Budgets

Moving can be expensive. So can the holidays. Get a handle on your finances by creating a moving budget and a holiday budget. Your moving costs may be fixed, so look for ways to save money by purchasing less expensive gifts, attending fewer holiday events and passing on hosting holiday meals.

Downsize Holiday Expectations

Don’t try to do it all this year. If you are moving before Christmas, put up fewer decorations and skip the tree. Plan a special “tree lighting” ceremony for when you move into your new home. If your move will take place after the holidays, plan a special day to take down and stow your decorations. Ask family members to host holiday dinners and parties. Let potential holiday guests know your home will mostly be in boxes. They may decide to rent a hotel room instead.

Share Your New Address

Kill two birds with one stone by sending a moving announcement with your holiday cards.

Celebrate!

No matter when you move this holiday season, celebrate when you get to your new home. You deserve a pat on the back for a job well done.
