Moving means going far from your friends and relatives and although you might still keep meeting and communicating, you still need to notify them about it. Inform them about your move as well as your new address. You can use these ways, either to inform them that you’ve already moved or that you are soon moving to your new address. This can be done creatively through various channels which include:
Send an email
For those that prefer electronic ways of communication, sending an email with the announcement as an attachment is an option to consider. You can design an announcement using online programs informing your friends and family about your moving and the dates. This will enable you to create the announcement according to your preferences like colors and graphics. If you do not have the time, you can alternatively find an online moving announcement and attach it to your email alongside with your new address.
Use of cards
Cards are also a great way to inform your friends and family of your moving or having arrived at your new home. Though it might be more expensive compared to making a custom card, find a unique design that will look beautiful to the receiver. You can choose the style according to your taste to make it more appealing. A custom card comes in handy when you want something good but lack the necessary skills that most graphic designers have.
You can also use pre-printed cards which are postcards that contain a pre-printed message on the outside part of the card. Include a sticker on the cards alongside with your new address, stamp it and send post them.
Throw a farewell party
If you are planning on informing your family before moving out, you can opt to host a goodbye party for your neighbors, friends, and family. It is not only a fun way but a moment to spend some time with them. The party invitations can be sent out through different methods such as email or postcards among others. Don’t forget to include your address on the cards. Your phone number is also important in case someone needs more details about the party’s location.
Throw a welcome party
Instead of throwing a goodbye party before you move out, you can decide to hold a welcome party once you move into your new home. Here you can invite your friends, family, close friends from your old neighborhood as well as your new neighbors and friends. This creates a wonderful atmosphere for all your loved ones to get to meet and know each other.
The welcome party does not have to cost you a lot of money. You can just plan a simple but fun party. Send out the invitations to all those that you want to attend. You can also post on your Facebook the party announcement and address if you don’t have a limit to the number of people you want to attend or else just send out an email or post to a few people.
Informing your friends and family of your new address doesn’t have to be expensive. Whichever way you will use, remember that you already have moving costs, so choose one that will fall within your budget.
