What are you taking?
Moving can be a great time to “clean your closet”. Through the years a lot of us accumulate a lot of things we really don’t need. It only makes it harder on you to hold onto this stuff not to mention it’s time consuming and will require space at your new location.
You don’t necessarily need to throw your items away and it can be a perfect opportunity to donate items to your local thrift store.
Prepare Smaller Items
Determine what you’re taking with you and always pack the smaller items first. These items generally need more care and may require wrapping. You also want to make sure you have enough boxes to accommodate all your smaller belongings. Newspaper is a great packing stuffer.
The sooner you start the process the better. This is typically the most time consuming portion of your move so the earlier you get packing, the sooner you get moving.
Try to be organized. Try to group your smaller items in categories, ex. Room. This will relieve a lot of headache when unpacking.
Despite their size, you still want to ensure that your items arrive as you left them. You'll need to put your books in boxes and make sure that the boxes are light enough to carry.
