Moving can be stressful at the best of times. There’s so much to consider that things can quickly become overwhelming. One of the many decisions you’ll need to make is what to pack and what to toss out. Now is the perfect time to replace aging and useless appliances and household products that are gathering dust on the shelves.

It’s human nature to collect stuff. It’s also human nature to resist ever throwing that stuff away. And so it sits, unused and unwanted with no purpose or design. When you’re packing for a move, consider what products you no longer use and which ones you need to replace. To help you with your task, here are the best new household products of 2017.

Robotic Lawn Mower: Worx Landroid M – $999

Let’s face it. Your lawnmower has seen better days. Rust is likely eating through the body, it doesn’t have nearly the same pep that it used to, and it’s been eons since you’ve cleaned the grass out of it. Add to that the fact that packing a lawnmower into a moving van is a pain. There’s no reason you shouldn’t replace your lawnmower. But why just replace it when you can upgrade it?

The Worx Landroid M is an autonomous robotic lawnmower. That’s right, with the Landroid M you never have to waste a Sunday afternoon again. With minimal setup, this guy will mow the lawn for you. Let that sink in for a moment. You never have to mow the lawn again! According to the Wall Street Journal, it’s perfect for smaller yards, and cheaper than a lot of its competitors. So sit back and relax while your new robot army does all the work.

Music and More: Sonos One – $299

Sonos has long been the frontrunner when it comes to wirelessly streaming music in the home. The new Sonos One, a single wireless music speaker system, adds Alexa into the mix. Not only can you listen to all your favorite sources, from Spotify to Pandora, but now you can control the entire system through a voice-activated interface. The sound quality is amazing, so ditch that bulky boombox before your move and move onto a Sonos whole-home audio system. Put one in any room of the house and control it from anywhere. Whether you’re telling Alexa to play your favorite song in the game room or adding to your grocery list, you won’t be disappointed.

Moving Beyond the Blender: Ninja Chef – $199

Why be a home chef when you can be a Ninja in the kitchen? If your old blender can’t even puree a tomato, it’s time for an upgrade. Don’t pack that dull-bladed has-been; instead, check out the new Ninja Chef. With a 1500-watt, variable-speed motor you’ll make quick work of everything from vegetables to peanuts. Its over-built parts and sleek design mean that you can chop, blend, or pulverize any food item in your kitchen. It’s cheaper than a Vitamix, more reliable than your old hand-me-down, and will make you a pro in the kitchen in no time.

Settling into a new house is no simple task, and while these household products might help alleviate the headaches, why not hire movers who will make your move as quick and painless as possible? Find one that understands you and your needs, and you’ve found something special.
