4 Packing Tips to Make Your Move Easier

It’s no secret that packing can be a stressful and strenuous process. Packing up your entire home to move can be a daunting task. We have found some tips and tricks to help you pack! Here are 4 packing tips to make your move easier.

Sort and Declutter

As you pack for your move, you may notice how much stuff you have. Perhaps you have been in the same home for a while and have started collecting things without realizing. As you prepare for your move, this could be a great time to take inventory and start to declutter. Take a look at your items and set aside the items you do not use anymore, or forget you even owned! Decluttering your home will help make your move easier, and will make unpacking easier, too!

Pack your boxes correctly

One of the best things you can do to make your move easier is to pack your boxes correctly. Make sure to utilize the box’s space and put heavy items on the bottom. Packing heavier items in smaller boxes and lighter items in larger boxes will help you the day of the move. Packing by room is a great way to make sure your unpacking is easier. That way you won’t find something like coffee cups with your sweaters. Be sure to tape and label your boxes! 

Try these hacks

One of the best ways to make your move easier is to pack smarter. It is super effective to keep your clothes on hangers while you move. Take a handful of your clothes on the hanger and wrap a garbage bag around, similar to a garment bag. Once you move, all that’s left to do is hang up your clothes and toss the bag!

Another helpful tip is to pack an overnight bag. Keep the absolute necessities like a toothbrush, and a change of clothes in this overnight bag. That way you are able to pack up everything else, and will still have the things you need to start your day the morning of your move.

We also recommend that you do not pack up your valuables. It is safer to keep the legal documents you may need for your move with you. You may also want to keep small things that you may worry about, such as jewelry, with you in your overnight bag. That way you will always know that it is safe.
