Planning on moving to DC this winter? While seasonal moving trends seem to favor spring/summer, plenty of new Washingtonians find themselves looking for apartments for rent in DC over the holiday season. However, the holiday seasons can be stressful enough on their own without the added burden of packing and moving as well.

If you’re looking to make the transition to DC over the next month or so, here are a few tips to make your move as smooth as possible while still leaving yourself time to enjoy the holidays with family, friends, and food.

Skip the Hosting

Do you love playing host during the holidays? This is probably the year to skip your annual bash and simply enjoy being a guest at someone else’s home. Whether you’re tidying up the last few things at your old apartment or you’ve settled into a new DC luxury apartment, wait until the dust has settled and you’re able to throw the best housewarming party of 2015!

Consider a Weekday Move

Unless you’re in the package delivery business, lots of companies find that the week between Christmas and New Year’s is one of the quietest of the entire year. Take advantage of this down time if you can and plan a weekday move. You may even be able to get an off-season discount from local moving companies!

Take Advantage of Holiday Sales

Who says everything you buy in December has to be a gift? Take advantage of major holiday shopping discounts and score some major deals for your new apartment!

Remember to Enjoy the Season

This time of year can be hectic even for those not moving. Make sure that you schedule some down time during your transition to enjoy the season’s festivities without overbooking yourself. You might have to skip one cocktail hour here or there, but when you get to finally cut loose on New Year’s Eve with the comfort of a new place, it’ll be worth it.

No matter if you’re moving to a cozy studio apartment in DC or have lots to move into a 2-bedroom DC apartment, there’s no reason your holiday season move has to add stress to what’s supposed to be a celebratory time.
