Selling the home where you grew up or where your kids’ took their first steps can be bittersweet. Prepare yourself for waves of nostalgia as you pack things up to move. Of course, it doesn’t have to be goodbye. Here are some tips to carry the memories with you.

  1. Many plants and trees can be transplanted, whether it’s through repotting or snipping a branch and planting it in your new yard. Research your favorite tree or flower online for more transplanting advice.
  2. Use mounting paper or a frame in the same color as the wall or carpet in your favorite room to display a photo of your family in that same room.
  3. Make a mini documentary of you and your family strolling through the house, discussing memories from each room.
  4. Take note of pencil marks where you measured your child’s height (or your parents measured yours). Mark them on a wall in your new house and continue the tradition.
