Are you due to move soon or plan to in the near future? If you are, you have a lot of packing to do. Making all the necessary steps to moving can be very stressful. Even if you are hiring a moving company to take care of all the big stuff, you still are left with packing the smaller things. This can be a big job-that’s why it’s important that it is done correctly. Here are some tips to make the process smoother.
Use clear bins to pack all of the items that you will need right away.
This factor depends on where you live, and also where you are moving to. Let’s face it, winter can have some very harsh and extreme weather. You don’t want to be stuck having to move into your new place in the middle of a snowstorm. If you can, Spring or Fall would be your best times to move.
Use your clothing to wrap your breakables in.
This kills two birds with one stone. You are ensuring extra protection for your plates, glasses, and bowls while unpacking your clothes too.
Properly label all boxes.
Yeah, I know-this one is a no-brainer. But believe it or not, some people skip this very important step. As you pack, make sure to label each box with the room it should go in. If you want to even go a step further, write what is in the box(towels, dishes, etc.) This will make unpacking so much easier and help alleviate a lot of stress.
Cover drawers with saran wrap.
Your dresser drawers can be considered boxes and will save you time. To keep the items intact, use some strong saran wrap. This way when you get to your new home all you have to do is remove the wrap. Following these tips will make the moving process a much smoother one. It will also help to take away some of the stress that comes with moving.
