Packing Up And Moving Your Home
Posted on 2013-11-28
If you want the best results from moving home, you need to get prepared first, then throw yourself into the task with enthusiasm. Starting early is a big part of preparation, because it takes time to come to grips with every element of the task, according to Unclutterer. Gather a generous supply of strong boxes, packing tape, and garbage bags. Clear a big space in your home, with room for packed boxes, items for charity donation, and another space for garbage. Get ruthless with your packing, and give away or throw out as much as you can bear to get rid of. The less you keep, the less you have to pack, move, and unpack again. Only use garbage bags for garbage. Otherwise you're running the risk of accidentally throwing away a garbage bag full of your possessions. Pack a suitcase or a duffel bag with a few changes of clothes, some toiletries, and your important documents. If necessary, you can live out of this bag while you get the rest of your things unpacked. Clearly label each box, so you know which box goes in which room. Try making an inventory that accounts for the contents of each box. This makes unpacking much easier. With some planning and an early start, moving home will be a quick and painless experience for everyone involved.
