1. Pack essential clothes and toiletries in an overnight bag.
Save yourself from the stress of having to dig through
boxes for clean clothes or a tooth brush. Have a week’s worth of
clothing and essential items in an easy to access bag.
2. Have a box specifically for items that will help you in the move.
There are a lot of little things you will need during
the move; scissors, box cutters, tape, trash bags, and paper towels just
to name a few. Pack all of these away in a small box or tub so that
you can have everything you need for the move in an accessible place.
3. Keep your clothes on hangers.
When it’s time to pack your closet, you can save major
time by keeping all of your clothes on hangers. Simply slip the
hanging clothes into large lawn-and-leaf bags for easy packing and
4. Color code by room.
In addition to labeling boxes use colored duct tape or
different colored of markers to color code boxes. This will save you
time with sorting when you get to your new place.
5. Sort through all of the items that you want to give away before packing.
There’s no reason to lug around those items that you
don’t want anymore. Before you start packing those boxes, make a
giveaway pile and donate those items for a fresh and clutter free start
in your new home.
6. Use dresser drawers like little moving boxes.
Keep all of your clothing in your dresser for the move. To prevent items from falling out, cover the drawers in plastic wrap.
