Moving can be stressful and overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Having a thorough plan for your move can turn even the most stressful move into a fun adventure. One of the biggest pieces that you have to figure out for your move is what to do with all of your stuff. Having a plan for your stuff is essential for making your entire move go as smooth as possible. If you’re not one to plan, these tips can help you prepare your stuff for moving day.
Make an Inventory
Before you put your first thing in a box, you should be making an inventory of the things you own. You don’t need to get as specific as the number of shirts you own or how many black socks you have, but you should inventory your bigger items, the items that have a lot of value, and the items that mean the most to you.
When you inventory your items, track which box they’re going in during the packing process so you always know where they are. Keeping a list of your inventory can help you stay organised and will make the packing process go much smoother.
Get Rid of Unwanted Stuff
We all have things that we don’t really need, but getting rid of your unwanted items is often much easier said than done. Having a sale or donating your items is a great way to get rid of the things that you don’t need to bring with you. Our team can help remove your unwanted items so you can focus on your move.
When you get rid of your unwanted things, you’re saving time and money during the moving process. You’ll have more room to take the things you need and you won’t have to pay to have your unwanted things moved to your new place.
Nobody should ever have to pack their entire home by themselves, so you should always enlist help. Not only can packing your entire home be overwhelming, it can be dangerous if you’re handling large, heavy items.
Organise by Room
One of the best organisation tips is packing your home room by room. Rather than gathering like items throughout your home into one box, packing room by room keeps your boxes and processes organised. When it comes time to unpack, you’ll have everything you need for each room together in your boxes.
You should always clearly label your boxes when you’re packing. Whether you write the name of the room where the box goes or you use a number system, labelling your boxes is going to save you a lot of time when it comes time to unpack.
