The exertion and emotion that comes along with long distance moving can bring some unwelcome feelings. Homesickness is expected, and exhaustion is imminent. Your moving company will take a ton of pressure off by doing a bulk of the work, but they can’t help you feel like you’re home, other than by bringing you your things, that is.
If you’re making the interstate move from NYC to Philadelphia, there are a few similarities you can play off of to help cure the longing for home that ails you.
You won’t be suffering climate shock with this move, but you still don’t have to bring everything you own with you. Leave behind clothes that you don’t wear anymore, because a great way to settle into Philly life is to head out and hit the shopping scene.
Wander Rittenhouse Row for hours, bouncing from shop to shop and taking the sights of your new city. You won’t miss your old wardrobe after just 10 minutes in this bustling part of Philly.
Packing up your whole closet can be cumbersome, and add to the price of moving costs. Besides, Pennsylvania has a no-tax-law on clothing and shoes. Shop away.
