Plan and Pack Well in Advance

One of the best things you can do before moving to another home or property is plan well in advance. As soon as you know for sure that you’re moving, you should start packing — even if it’s months ahead of time. The longer you wait, the more work you’re going to have to do. Sort out things you rarely use but plan on keeping, and start organizing and boxing them up. Or you could always store them at an Affordable Family Storage facility.

Make a List or Several

If you’re someone who has a habit of making lists this is probably one of the first things you’ll do when it comes to packing. If not, then it’s definitely something you should do. Making lists might seem tedious and time-consuming, but it can make packing, and especially unpacking, much easier. When it comes to time to put things in boxes, you should also make use of clear labels. Avoid the common mistake of having boxes labeled for “miscellaneous” items. You’ll end up having no idea what’s been put where.

Stock Up on Packing Supplies

When you’re planning ahead, you should also stock up on your moving supplies early on. This way you’ll avoid emergencies when the time comes to actually move. Boxes, tape, bubble wrap, packing peanuts, tissue or packing paper, labels, markers, plastic boxes with sealable lids, even just regular shopping bags — collect anything that you can make use of before moving day. You can also ask local stores and businesses if they have any spare boxes or containers that they don’t mind giving away.

Pack Smart

Taking the above guidelines into account well in advance can be a big help, but it’s also important to be organized when you pack. Don’t just haphazardly mix everything together in containers and hope for the best when you arrive at your new home. Keep things organized by room, size, use, or whatever makes the most sense to you. The important thing is to come up with a consistent system that isn’t too confusing and stick to it.
