Tips on How to Pack in an Organized Manner
Packing is the most time consuming part of the move. But a lot of time can be saved when you do it properly. And even more time would be saved in unpacking when you pack your things properly. The first step really is to sift through your things and segregate the things that you do not need anymore. Decide whether you are going to sell them or donate them to charity. The important thing is you discard them so you will have fewer items to pack. Not only will this minimize the time needed for packing but minimize your need for packing materials as well. You can then begin buying packing materials. To save money you can ask boxes from grocery stores and liquor stores. There are even free secondhand moving boxes as well. You may also buy secondhand boxes as long as you can ensure that you will get sturdy and durable boxes. Of course, many opt to buy brand new boxes to ensure the safety of their things. Don't forget to buy bubble wrap and packing papers to provide cushion for your things. Packing tapes are essential for sealing the boxes. You should pack by rooms in order not to make a mess. This would also ensure that similar things will go in the same boxes. Of course, do not forget to label the boxes so the movers will know where to put the boxes. It would also be better if you write the contents of each box in a card so finding items would be easier even if you have not yet finished unpacking. You should pack the essential items in a separate box though so you would only need to unpack one or two boxes to be able to function well in your new home.
