Moving? You’re looking forward to an exciting new home base, yet dreading the process that takes you there. The cleaning, the planning, the packing…there is just TOO MUCH work to do! Don’t stress – we’ve come up with a list of moving tips to help ease the process!
Label, label, label
Make sure your boxes are labeled correctly! You wouldn’t want to end up putting a heavy box in an upstairs bedroom that was really meant for your basement, and have to relocate it. Save your lower back!
Write it down
You should write down the items that are in each and every box. That will help you out if you need something last minute and haven’t had time to unpack the entire house! We recommend using red duct tape to indicate the most important boxes.
Worried about your breakables? You can use linens or other soft things that you’re already packing to wrap up and safeguard your fragiles from breaking. We don’t however, recommend using your linens to wrap up your furniture just in case they do get stained during the move.
Wrap it up
Plastic wrap is your BFF! Consider covering the top of cosmetic bottles with plastic wrap and an elastic band to avoid spilling your favourite lotions and potions.
Last but not least
Which room to pack last? Make sure to leave the kitchen to the end. That way you can still enjoy the amenities of a home cooked meal during the crazy packing hours!
