Of course, one of the best ways to help you remember your old home is to make sure you have plenty of photos. Once you've decided to sell and before packing all of your belongings into moving boxes, snap pictures of each room, even when they’re messy. Or if you’re someone who already likes taking photos, collect those you’ve already taken, especially when you’re enjoying the little moments with your loved ones—chilling in front of the TV on a weekend night, your kids playing in the garden, you and your spouse lounging on the patio with your favorite drinks, and so on. Anything special to you around the house and the neighborhood, snap a photo of it to help you remember.
You could print the photos out and arrange all of them in an album, with the address and the dates you lived there on the front cover. For those with younger kids, you can encourage them to help you make a scrapbook. If you want to go all out, grab a camcorder and film everything. All of these will serve as a lovely and realistic record of your time at your old home. And if you’re having mixed feelings about moving, these honest images showing the good and bad elements of your house might help you become more excited about your new abode.
