Most people have bad sentiments when it comes to moving, but with the right preparation, everyone can have a clean, organized, and easy move. Moving into a brand new home is an exciting adventure, and should not at all be a chore. Here are some packing tips to make moving a lot simpler.
Separate the Unwanted
Weeks before you move, take a look through all of your possessions and get rid of the items you no longer want. If you have clothes or furniture that you no longer wish to own, sell them or give them away. If you have items that you want to keep but which you will not use for a while, then rent a self-storage pod.
Get All Materials
To ensure safe travels of your belongings, buy and gather all necessary materials for moving day. You will need boxes of all sizes, packing material like bubble wrap, packing paper, foam peanuts, and tape.
If you pack each room individually, you can make the process of loading and unloading run much more smoothly by labeling every box. Some people use color-coding boxes per room, which saves time when sorting the boxes in your new home. However, the easiest thing you can do is write the room and box contents in permanent marker on each box.
Put Necessities and Valuables Aside
Make a list of the things you use every day like toiletries, a change of clothes, some food and kitchenware and utensils, and electronics. The day of your move, put all of those in one box and keep it with you. Make sure that you also keep your high-priced items and important documents close by at all times.
