Thinking of moving? It could be quite exciting to be in a new place, meet new friends and experience a new lifestyle. But, moving can become a nightmare if you don’t have anything planned and you just want to get done with it.
Here are some awesome, must-try moving hacks that could save the day:
#1 Purge before moving!
Take time to declutter and get rid of as much as you can before moving. You’ll end up with less stuff to pack. Sweet!
#2 Don’t buy expensive bubble wrap.
Even though it’s super fun to pop, you can just use your old towels, rags and even your old clothes to wrap your fragile items. You can also use coffee filters in between breakable items.
#3 Don’t buy boxes.
Check your local classifieds or even Facebook. People are always willing to give their moving boxes for free when they’re done with them. You can also ask grocery stores which have new boxes every week.
#4 Pack like a boss
Start with things on the wall. Don’t pack clothes in boxes. You can just use a garbage bag and pack them like a dry cleaner bag. Also, don’t unpack your drawers. You can just wrap them with packing wrap, toss them into the truck and just unwrap at your new home.
Label several sides of the box and on one side, label every single thing that is inside the box.
#6 Be ultra organized.
Color code boxes with different colored tape based on the room that they need to go to. Make a master list and place them in a places where people can see it to move the items properly to each room.
#7 Put all moving supplies in one bin.
Put your supplies such as packing wrap, tape and so on, in one place to make it easier for you.
#8 A bin for essentials.
It’s really important to have prepare a bin for essentials such as toilet paper and hand soap which you’ll really use once you moved in.
#9 Snap one last picture of old home.
Take a picture of you and your family at your old home and say goodbye!
