8 packing tips for a move.

Everyone hates packing.  Having good packing tips is key to getting through it.  After moving a few times, I’ve picked up a some packing strategies.  What are your tips for moving?

Pack an Overnight Bag

Nothing is worse than not being able to find your toothbrush or pajamas after a long day of moving.  Pack a bag with everything you’re going to need for the night of the move and the next morning so you don’t have to go searching through boxes to find all of your essentials.

Wrap Breakables in Clothes

Save money on bubble wrap and wrap breakables in clothing or dish rags.

Label “First” and “Last”

You can label your boxes by importance, like marking them “first” and “last.”  The first boxes can be put in clear boxes so you know exactly what’s in them and you don’t have to open all of the boxes to get to them.  The “last” box can include things that you can put in a corner and forget about like Christmas decorations.

Pack Small Parts in Sandwich Bags

When you take apart your television, bed or curtain rods, save the screws and parts in sandwich bags and tape them to the furniture it goes with.  Go ahead and label it for good measure in case the bag falls off in the move.

Pack in What You Have

If you have lots of decorative baskets, laundry baskets or suitcases, don’t forget to pack in those and save on the moving boxes.

Keep Tools Handy

There’s always something to put together when you get into a new place.  Keep your tools handy or in a box you’re going to unpack first.

Make a “Moving” File

Keep a file with important documents including moving tuck rental, passports, check books and any documents for your new home.

Pack Heavy in Small Boxes

Don’t forget to pack heavy items like books in small boxes so you don’t break your back moving your entire library in one box.

      label your boxes by room. I always do this so that boxes with kitchen items don’t get put in other rooms etc.

      Use tape with colors and/or patterns for each room to seal or mark boxes etc. My kids loved choosing their own.

      We have moved our home & business multiple times. I use a binder
      & colored Sharpies. First I mark by color which room & then each box gets a number on all sides & the top. The contents are listed on a sheet of binder paper with the number on the top. When it is full & ready to go we take out the sheet & add it to the binder.

      Call your local newspaper printer for end rolls. They’ll happily give or sell them to you for very little money.
