Moving tips

Well, one day it will happen to you. For sure.

So… first things first!

Make a moving plan. Before you even begin to pack, create a layout of your new house on paper. Write down each room you will be moving boxes into and then use those same names when labeling boxes. This will save everyone time.

Start early. As soon as you find out your moving, start going through closets and build your “garage sale pile” and “donate pile.”

For clothing, you can move clothes on hangers! Use garbage bags to cover your clothes and keep them clean. They come in all different sizes and will help your clothes stay on the hanger. Simply put a hole in the bottom of the bag and pull the hangers through. Then tie a knot on the bottom.

Everything starts with a good plan!

Store items inside of large bowls and pots, for example your spices in your crock pot. Always be thinking about how to utilize your space.

Use a phone book or packing paper to wrap your dishes and breakables. Line your breakable boxes with bubble wrap and towels as well.  You can never have too much padding. Also use smaller boxes for breakables. This will help the movers and your things from breaking.

Place foam plates between your glass plates to protect them.

Label and condense! Only keep what you really need and use. Label it accordingly so that you can actually be able to find it when you un-pack.

When in doubt, tape it! It’s better to secure all of your boxes.

Last but not least… make sure to label your boxes accordingly. Label boxes with the room they are going to and exactly what is inside them. Post it notes work great. Just secure them with tape. If there are fragile items in the box, be sure to mark it FRAGILE. This will save everyone a lot of time and stress during the move. It’s worth the extra couple of seconds to label it.
