Packing Tips to Make Your Move Easier
Summer is the busiest time of the year to move, so if you’re planning a move, you are not alone. To ensure a smooth move, consider having everything ready to go well before the movers arrive. Work with your household to create a plan and timeline to ensure that everyone will know how and when to pitch in.
Once you’re ready to start packing, consider the following tips:
- Pack one room at a time to stay organized.
- Label boxes on the side or use a color-coded system by room to make the unloading process easier.
- Use a clean trash bag to pack clothing on hangers, and you’ll be able to hang up your clothes right away in your new closet.
- Pack a clear bin with first-day essentials, such as trash bags, disinfectant wipes, paper towels, paper plates, toilet paper and hand soap. Include whatever you think you’ll need to use that first day.
