Making Your St Cloud Moving Day Priceless

 Buying or selling any St. Cloud home is, on one hand, a highly technical matter. The full complement of Minnesota rules guarantee that the transaction cannot be challenged. The volumes of paperwork we execute at the closing table literally seal the deal.

But there’s also “on the other hand”—the human aspect that follows closing. In the hectic melee that often accompanies moving day—once the moving van has driven off—it’s time to say goodbye to the house. It is a landmark juncture—the moment when your “home” again becomes simply a “house,” as you and the family move on to the next.

This is a moment that’s likely to be overlooked until it’s at hand, on top of you. And then it has passed; in the rearview mirror; gone forever. But rather than allowing moving day to become a time when something irreplaceable is lost, a couple of simple preparations can turn the occasion around:

Be a Historian. As you assemble the cartons to pack for the move, set one out in a central place as a repository for the family history. It will serve as a receptacle for the snapshots, mementos and bits and pieces that have collected in drawers and shelves through the years. They’re likely to be discarded as ‘junk’—but in later years will trigger memories that are otherwise bound to be forgotten altogether. You might turn them into an invaluable scrapbook—literally, they are the “scraps” of history! More likely, in future family reunions, they will inspire the kind of lively, hilarious flashbacks that make for hilarious get-togethers.

Bring the St. Cloud House with You. Even before your St. Cloud moving day arrives, make sure you have at least one photograph that can stand for all time as the way “the St. Cloud house” looked when you lived there. Today it’s newly inexpensive to have a good digital photograph transformed into a frameable portrait. Plan to have it grace a wall in the new house—somewhere where everyone will pass it daily. Every once in a while, they’ll pause to remember, connecting past to present. It’s said that that wisdom accumulates where memory flourishes.
