You’re moving? Yay! Congratulations! But next comes the stress and mess of moving. So here are some nifty packing tips for moving house.
Pack the items you will need FIRST in a clear plastic bin. This includes things like a box cutter, paper towels, trash bags, eating utensils, select cookware, power strips, phone chargers, toilet paper, tools, etc. The clear bin allows you to see inside; it also separates itself from the myriad of cardboard boxes.
If you own items that you want to get rid of but are too valuable to just give away, start selling on eBay, Etsy, or Craigslist at least six weeks before moving. It’s an easy way to make you feel like you aren’t procrastinating, and you might be able to make enough money back to pay for the entire move itself. But it takes time for things to sell on Etsy and eBay, so you’ll want to plan accordingly.
A good starting point will be rooms and items you use the least. The spare bedroom, garage or attic are usually easy places to start.
Leave everyday items until the day before the move and keep any essentials items such as medication separately.
Does everything fit your new home?
Furniture that is in your existing home may well not fit into your new home, and it’s best to know this up front so you can sell it / donate it before you move.
Take some time to measure doorways etc. and work out whether the larger items of furniture (your sofa/dresser etc.) will fit into your new space.
There would be nothing worse than leaving a sofa on the front garden on moving day!
TIP – This is also an useful exercise for working out whether you have suitable space for all your furniture. If you are downsizing it’s worth working out what can and cannot fit into your new home, and sorting these out before moving day.
