Packing might be the most tedious part of moving but if done
right it will also make things easier for you. The secret to it really is
starting early and planning ahead as well. With much time in your hands you
will be able to think of all the things you need to pack and the things you
need to prepare.
To prepare for packing, first assess your things and list
down all the things you have to bring. This will allow you to know and plan
what packing materials you will need as well. Then get all the appropriate
boxes needed, packing tapes, extra newsprints, cleaning clothing, bubble wraps,
and other packing materials.
Plan how you would label the boxes as well. Organize a code
that will signify the room it will go to and the priority number of unpacking
the boxes. Each box should also indicate the contents of each box. This will
guide the movers where each box needs to go.
This will avoid you from having to lug them around and even end up
scratching the floors. You will also know which boxes contain the most
essential items in your home so you will be able to unpack them first.
Of course, in packing box the items that you need the least
and box those you need most last. Each person in your family should also have
his own essential box so you would not have to rummage through boxes during the
trip and on the first day of your arrival. By following these tips, you will be
able to have a more relaxed and less stressful move.
