It’s Time To Pack

January 30, 2011

Following are organization tips to make the process of packing as efficient as possible:

If you create a system of organization for tracking your belongings it will make your unpacking time much easier. Label each box with a number and put together a list itemizing what is in each labeled box.

Make an attempt of get rid of any unneeded items prior to moving day. Also, try to keep items from one room together. When you start unpacking in your new home your goal will be to empty the boxes as quickly as possible so you will not have to be moving boxes from room to room. It’s a good idea to keep items that you may need immediately in a duffle bag since it will be easy to find among all of the boxes.

At the very start of packing you should have more boxes available than you feel you will need. If boxes are purchased from a moving company, you can always return unused boxes for a refund. Keep a surplus of ten boxes for last minute items.

To prevent fragile items from breaking, it’s a good idea to limit the amount of empty space in a box by wrapping newspaper paper around each item and use crumpled paper in the spaces in between.
