“I had a blackboard in my last place and found it really useful,” Hadley says. “The wall near the stairs was the obvious place to put one, so that became my main working area.” With this decision, the rest of the open-plan space flowed. “There are windows at each end of the room. I wanted the light from them to fall on the areas in which you sit and eat, and where you relax, so the dining space is at one end and the living room is at the other. The kitchen then easily went into the middle, where there was plumbing in place, too.”Desk: Urban Outfitters; DSW chair: Eames for Vitra

2. Paint before you move in. If you plan to give your new space a fresh coat of paint, it makes a lot of sense to do this before moving all of your stuff in. Aside from the obvious (it’s easier to paint an empty house than one full of furniture), you’ll feel a great sense of accomplishment having “paint” ticked off your to-do list before the first box is even unpacked. While you’re at it, if there are other messy, disruptive items on your list (anything to do with the floors definitely qualifies), getting to as many of them as possible before moving day will be a big help.

5. Create a ‘done’ list. To-do lists have a habit of constantly growing, which can be demoralizing. Every now and then, make a list of things that you’ve already achieved on your way toward a specific goal and add to it every day. If you depend on a to-do list to keep you going, at least leave all the completed jobs on it, satisfyingly crossed off, to give you a sense of achievement no matter how many tasks remain.

What to Do Before a Stager ArrivesGive your home a thorough, “white glove” deep cleaning.Fix anything broken or easily improved — oil squeaky hinges, for instance.Replace lightbulbs or at least make sure all of your fixtures have working bulbs and the illumination is consistent.Weed and mulch your flower beds, especially in front of the home, for curb appeal. You’ll make a good impression before potential buyers even reach the front door.Pack away superfluous family photos on display. Keeping a few out is OK, but too many pictures dampens the “I could see myself living here” reaction of potential buyers.More10 Low-Cost Tweaks to Help Your Home Sell7 Must-Dos on the Day You Show Your House5 Remodels That Make Good Resale Value Sense — and 5 That Don’tThe All-in-One-Place Guide to Selling Your Home and Moving

5. Tackle Mom’s household to-do list. “My grown sons, 28 and 30, have given me the gift of a Honey-Do list for the past 10 years,” reader 55snownow writes. “I make a list, they show up with tools and start working. It’s a great time to talk and laugh together while we work.… I absolutely adore them for making the day special for me.”
