In order to be fully prepared for your move you’ll need to prepare all of your personal belongings. If this sounds stressful - fear not! There are many tips & tricks that will help you take on this daunting task head on, making it your most successful move to date.
Get Organized and Stay Organized!
By staying organized you can avoid feeling too overwhelmed. Go room by room and categorize your belongings. Separate clothing, books, movies, decorations, knick knacks, etc. and get those piles ready to be packed away. This makes unpacking easier too! By using labels or marking up boxes by room you can easily distribute them into your new home and avoid dreading unpacking duties.
Gather your packing materials - tape, boxes, newspaper, markers, scissors and anything else you need to ensure your items are safely protected. Remember that your belongings vary in size, so be sure to have many boxes with multiple size options.
Create one box with necessary items like your phone charger, medicine, toilet paper, toothpaste, soap, etc. so that these items will be easy to grab. After a long day of moving you’ll want to make sure you have quick access to those necessities without digging through all of your other belongings.
Trust us - if you start out organized the process will be a LOT easier to complete.
