How To Make Packing Less of a Hassle

It is no surprise that no one likes to pack and unpack for the moving process. It would be so much better if everything could magically go from one place to the next. Unfortunately, we do not live in a world where that is possible. Instead, we have some tips that can help you out. If you take a little bit of extra time while you are packing everything for the move, then you can have a much easier time unpacking everything after you have gotten there.

  1. Organize boxes by room and color code them. When you are packing everything up, make sure you color code boxes with stickers for their corresponding rooms. That way, when you move, all of the boxes can be placed in the room they go in and you can tackle the unboxing part room by room. This can save you some time from searching through a big pile of boxes and just focus on the room you are in.
  2. Keep an inventory and label your boxes. A great way to find what you need quickly while moving is to keep an inventory for the items you have packed and to label the boxes accordingly. This will prevent you from searching through a lot of boxes to find the one you need. 
  3. Pack a first night box. Chances are, after you move everything, you will not want to unpack everything. To prevent that, pack a first night box with toiletries like your toothbrush, shower stuff, toilet paper, fresh closes, and things you need to sleep. If everything you need is in one box, you can rest easy and get busy the next day with unpacking.
