Moving isn’t always easy, but it doesn’t have to feel like you’re losing your mind in the process!
Yes, the actual process of packing and moving can be overwhelming but it’s 100 percent doable.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to moving made easy.
Creating a Schedule
It’s much easier to put things odd until you finally realize in a panic that you’re not ready for your moving day.
Schedule as much time as you need for moving and packing.
Organize how long you think it will take you to pack everything from each room then create a schedule with enough time built in.
Finding the best movers should also be apart of your planning process to make those heavier items easier to manage.
Sort Through Your Needs and Wants
Take a good look at your closets and other things to find out what you can donate.
Moving made easy is having organized piles of things that you want versus things that you need.
Get rid of anything you haven’t used in forever.
You should keep any important items off of the moving truck in case they don’t arrive when you do.
Pack All of Your Chargers
Before packing to move, you might want to keep all of your chargers and cords in one pile.
Put all of your random cords in a box and see if you find any matches during the moving and packing process.
In this situation, it’s better to play it safe.
Label a Box to Be Opened First
For simple moving, pack a box with all the things you don’t want to be without on your first night in your new home.
That includes personal items and other necessities like bed sheets, toilet paper, prescriptions, etc.
Anything that you’re likely to be tempted to tear through all of your other boxes for in a crisis should be in this one box.
You should label all of your other boxes with colored scotch tape to help you with less shuffling in the long run.
They’re even easier to spot than a colored marker and you can use different tape for each room.
This way, you’ll know at a glance where you should place each box.
Know What You Have Inside Each Box
Nothing says moving made easy like having a brief summary of what’s in each of your moving boxes.
You might want immediate access to your everyday dishes rather than struggling to remember which box they’re in.
You can take a step ahead and take a photo with your smartphone before taping each box up.
Then number each box and get a photo of that too — now you can know which photo is paired with which box.
If you pack everything closely together, you reduce the chance of things shifting in transit.
This will also help avoid any potential breaking or damage to your goods.
You should cover all of your furniture with protective pads and tape your drawers closes using painters tape so they remain closed.
Sofas and chairs should also be wrapped in stretch wrap.
You can wrap any TVs in a blanket or with shrink wrap.
Store your items upright and you should be all set to go!
