Even if you’ve moved several times–locally, nationally or even internationally–it can be stressful to pack up your home and do it again. If you’re worried about staying organized while getting ready to move, using these expert packing tips can help.
Start with Off-Season Items
It can be hard to know where to start packing, and that uncertainty may feel overwhelming. A good way to begin is with stored off-season items you know you won’t need, from clothes to sports gear, holiday decorations, seasonal housewares and bedding.
Be Smart About Packing Boxes
You might be tempted to just start boxing things up, especially if time is growing short, but it will just be a hassle to unpack later. Avoid packing items for multiple rooms in a single box. Place larger and heavier items on the bottom. Avoid using boxes bigger than you can carry comfortably. Ask whether your moving company provides boxes in multiple sizes.
Stay Organized with Labels
Label every box you pack on all sides with a permanent marker. Write whether it’s fragile and what room it belongs in, or consider using color-coded tape or markers. This will help the movers get boxes into the right rooms quickly once you arrive in your new home so you can start unpacking right away.
