Organize Your Supplies Before You Even Start Packing

When you are looking to move, it is important to have everything that you will need to pack your belongings. Failure to do this can result in spending more time driving to the store to purchase items and can put you behind schedule. When you are behind schedule, it often increases your stress level and makes an already stressful time much more stressful. If you take the time to organize your supplies before you even start packing, the entire experience can be fun and rewarding.

Some of the supplies that you will want to have available are boxes and packing tape. By having boxes of various sizes, you will be able to accommodate all of your belongings. If you do not want to purchase boxes, you may be able to visit your local grocery stores in order to get boxes from them that food has been delivered in. You will want to make sure that you have enough packaging tape so that you can tape up the boxes as you pack them. Then you will not be tempted to take anything out of the box until the day of the move.

Along with boxes and tape, it is important to have a marker and a notebook. Some people will use a color coding system where each room has a different color marker on the box. If you do this method, it is important that you write in the notebook which color is for each room. Another reason for the notebook is an inventory to make sure that all of your belongings arrive safely at your new home. When you finish packing a box, make sure that you mark it on the inventory page so you can keep track of how many boxes should be in each room when you arrive.

Ask for Help: It’s hard to do Alone

Moving alone can make moving day a difficult and challenging day. You will find that most individuals will happily set aside some of their time to help you move into your new house or apartment.

Check with your friends to see if they have a truck that you can use on moving day. Talk to your friends that are big and strong, they will be able to help move the large pieces of furniture. Unless you want total mayhem, you will need to delegate activities on your moving day. Always bring extra cleaning supplies to the new house or apartment. Having friends to help you clean is a great plan. You never know what the previous tenants may have left behind.

Moving day is always a stressful and challenging day. Having friends to help on moving day expedites the process and eliminates the stress of moving into the new house or apartment. Friends may also show a little more tender loving care (tlc), when transporting your items, so you will have fewer broken or missing items.

After all the boxes are moved plan some fun activities such as a picnic lunch. It’s time to relax and enjoy your new home.
