One Room At A Time
When trying to pack all of your home’s belongings, it can seem a bit overwhelming at first when considering the amount of rooms you might need to go through. In order to manage this challenge and stay organized, we suggest you work in one room at a time. It might be tempting to move from one room to the other while packing, but if you dedicate time packing the objects in one room from beginning to end, it will actually save you time because through being more organized.
There’s A Label For That
Be sure to label every one of your cardboard moving boxes with a permanent marker so that they can be easily readable. It can also help to list the items that were included in each box, as well as the room they came from, so that they can be found quickly upon arrival and moved into the correct room.
