3 Packing Tips to Help Make Your Move Stress-Free

Moving can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be.  One way to make your move easier is to organize yourself while you're packing. Here are a few tips that will help make your move more organized and stress-free.

Packing Tip 1: Pack one room at a time. It’s overwhelming to pack every room in one day. Make sure you are only packing one room at a time. It helps with your time management and helps you keep your boxes organized.

Packing Tip 2: Make it Colorful.
To help your movers, professional or friends and family, color code your boxes. Select a color for every room, write the contents and add a sticker or patterned tape to distinguish one room from another. That way when you’re unpacking, you know exactly where the boxes belong in your new home!

Packing Tip 3: Be prepared. You will need more supplies than you think. Make sure you’re prepared so you won’t have to keep returning to the store! If you’re purchasing your boxes from a moving company, they will buy back your unused boxes, so make sure you stock up. While it’s tempting to use newspaper instead of packing paper, newspaper print can bleed onto your items, so be sure to invest in packing paper. Keep a few rolls of packing tape on hand and leave out boxes for your moving day so you have extra boxes to pack up any last minute items.
