  • Begin by packing decorative items and the things you don’t really use everyday.
  • Label every box as to contents and the room it belongs in at the new house.
  • Fill boxes with things you no longer need and wish to donate to a worthy cause.
  • When packing, keep like items together so they will be organized when unpacking.
  • Use towels and wash clothes for packing breakables when possible.
  • When moving clothes you can slip a bundle into large garbage bags while still hanging in the closet.  Tie the bag at the top and it keeps them from sliding all over during the move and they are ready to re-hang easily in the new closet.
  • When moving toys, move the whole toy box or use large garbage bags and label them.
  • Move dressers, desks, ottomans, etc. with all the contents in them whenever possible.
  • Plan in advance for meals, snacks and beverages on moving day so you won’t have to take time out to grab something.  Especially if you have friends helping, it’s helpful to plan ahead.
  • On moving day, if the boxes are labeled by rooms, have the movers place them directly in those rooms if possible.
  • Keep cleaning supplies handy in a box you can unpack first.
  • When unpacking, put away the necessities first.  Then tackle one room at a time to unpack and organize everything else.
  • End by unpacking and placing your decorative accessories and items you don’t use everyday and it will begin to look and feel like home in no time.
  • Wait a few days to hook up the electronic equipment so as not to be distracted.
