Packing Storage Tips

  • Think categories when tackling the living room or kitchen. Plates in one box, while cups and bowls in a separate one. This will keep things systematic.
  • Packing sentimentals? Give them lots of padding so the occasional bump on the road, is not catastrophic to these gems.
  • Keep a box off to the side with must have items. You will be thankful you have hand soap available as soon as you get to the new house.
  • A moving company may be in the budget and if you have large hard-to-move pieces, they may be just the professionals to help.
  • Have a plan for when you arrive at your unit. Normally this means how you packed the truck will be an example of how your unit will be organized.
  • Boxes with like items in them should stay together. For example, your bathroom towels should be close to your bathroom rugs and curtain.
  • If you are swapping the winter boots for flip flops, make sure you are going through everything and making edits where they need made.
