Bring Only Basic Toiletries - Deepstash

Bring Only Basic Toiletries

Maybe you have some preferred cosmetic products, and you want to take a large supply of those to your new country in case you can’t find them there. However, that’s not a good idea. 

These products take a lot of space, space you’ll need for more essential items. Plus, most of the toiletries are temperature-sensitive, so they are likely to be ruined during your travel.

Bring some medicines, just in case you'll need any of them during your international relocation or right upon arrival to your new home.

You need to be prepared even for the worst-case scenario, so do pack some medicines that might come in handy in case you catch a cold or have a headache. If you take some medication regularly, bring at least a two months’ supply in case you can’t find those particular drugs in the new country.

  • Only the stuff that is essential or those that have special meaning for you should find a place in your suitcases when relocating overseas. 
  • When it comes to clothes and shoes, you should bring enough for the first couple of weeks or months. Once you settle in and explore the area, you’ll be able to buy everything you need there, too.
  • The golden rule is to leave everything you haven’t used in over a year.

Renting Out Your Property in The UK
  • Decide on how you wish your property to be managed. If you decide to let an agent handle your property, it's pretty common for them to take care of all the elements for about 10-15% of the rental income.
  • Make considerations on the taxes. Ensure that the HMRC is aware of your intentions and apply for the non-resident landlord scheme.
  • Find a suitable ex-pat landlord insurance that will cover you and your property including contents, damages, and any legal fees.
  • For mortgages, inform your provider.

Moving To A Different Country

Travelling to a new country is a highly disruptive, educative experience, with discoveries and adventure every day: New kinds of food, people, places, customs and cultures.

It is a fantasy of a lot of people to pack their bags and just go somewhere abroad, starting a fresh, new life. The ‘experience economy’ trend (before the pandemic hit the planet) has had the younger generation spending good money on travelling and exploring, instead of buying expensive stuff.
