Now you have your packing list, now it’s time to prepare and organize for packing each room in your house. Here are a few tips:
Sort and Toss: Sort through the items in each room of your house. Decide what you want to keep, what you want to donate, and what you want to toss.
Use the Things You Don’t Want to Move: If you have perishable food items that won’t move easily, consider trying to use them up before you begin the packing process.
Pack One Room at a Time: Decide which room you’re going to start in, and then don’t move to the next room until you’re done with the first. This will assure that your belongings are all in the same group and not scattered in different boxes.
Pack Bedding and Clothing in Suitcases: Don’t pack your suitcases in the moving van empty – instead, fill them with clothing, towels, linens, and bedding.
Label Carefully: Carefully label each box after you’ve sealed it. The more information, the better when it comes to unpacking. Also mark on the box if it is fragile or not, and which side is up.
Consider Color Coding: Using a color coding system can be helpful. For example, boxes labeled in green ink all belong in the kitchen, while boxes labeled in yellow ink all go in the master bedroom.
Box Carefully: Use smaller boxes when you’re packing heavy items. This will make them much easier to lift come moving day. When packing boxes, place heavier, sturdy items on the bottom, and place lighter items on top.
