No one likes packing when moving to a new location. It’s crucial to stay organized but keeping track of every single item in your home is difficult. If you are relocating to St. Louis or anywhere, consider some hacks that can make your moving experience more manageable.
Plan your packing at least a month in advance of your move. Create a checklist that you will use to keep track of what you’re packing. Each room should have an individual list. Here’s an example of a checklist.
Begin organizing all the packing supplies, including all sizes of boxes, sticker labels, markers, bubble wrap, plastic bags, blankets, and tape.
Moving is the perfect opportunity to downsize. You will come across items you don’t need anymore, but someone else might need them. You could take advantage of this time to help others by selling or donating your unwanted items.
Preparing for your first day in your new home is a good idea. Unpacking takes a lot of time, and you won’t get to open all the boxes on the first day. Prepare an essential bag with disposable cups, plates, cutlery, sheets, necessary clothing, a flashlight, easy-to-make meals, essential cookware, chargers, toiletries, and anything you might need on your first day. You will eliminate some worries knowing you at least have access to the essentials.
Create labels for the boxes for easy identification, and make sure your boxes are not too heavy. Labeling is a great way to keep your boxes organized. Not only should you write what items are in the box, but it’s also a good idea to write down what room those items belong in for easier unloading.
Hiring professional movers is an essential component of a smooth move. You can hire professionals to help you organize a van or a truck and move your belongings to your new home. Why not look here for some of the best movers in St. Louis?
