This week I helped my future-in-laws move out of their first rental house and into a house that is they can call their own. Last year I also helped out with 2 other moves and moved my fiancée and I out of our separate apartments and into our home. I have hours of experience of packing and unpacking, so I have become somewhat of a pro at figuring out what you should pack when you move out and what you should reconsider. Here are some useful tips to keep in mind when you are packing and moving.
Moving can be a daunting task for anyone. It is important to save space when possible so that you can avoid making multiple trips and it will be less that you need to unpack later. If you have to move in one shot it is especially important that you condense the amount of items that you have so you don’t have an expensive moving bill. When moving houses, you begin to really understand the difference of something that you want versus something that you need. One of my moving out tips, and probably the most important is to purge your home from the unnecessary. Get rid of things that you don’t use or could live without such as gifts that you didn’t like, outdated clothes, glitch riddled appliances, and more. Once you have determined what you don’t need organize the things that you have no use for into a throw away, sell, and donate pile. This method allows you to have less to pack and possibly make some extra money.
Now that you have gotten rid of the unnecessary items that you have, it is time to figure out what to do with the remainder of your items. In order to maximize space when you are moving out , I think you should treat it as if you are packing for a flight or packing a suitcase. In situations where you are forced to come up with creative solutions to fit everything you want to go on your trip with you. Get a special storage solution like those vacuum clothes bags to help you pack as much as you can in an enclosed space. Another way for you to save space is to make digital copies of your important documents and save them on your computer or put them in a safety deposit box so that you are able to find them on short notice.
Make sure to make an itemized packing checklist. This moving packing checklist will help you to easily break down the large prospect of moving into easier to manage each space by looking at your moving planner. A moving planner will save you time and energy as it allows you stay on track and easily see what you have done. Organize your things into rooms, and by importance and label them so that your movers or friends and family don’t throw a box with your china dishes or something. The first things that you should put into you new house is items that you won’t need right away, such as books and movies, while your food should spend as little time in moving boxes as possible in order to maintain fresh quality.
Be sure to use these tips on moving out as something that you think about as you are calling a door to door moving company or a cheap moving company . They can prevent you from increasing your stress level while moving houses. Organization can turn the large amounts of work involved with the house into a much easier and enjoyable process. This is a new chapter in your life and it is best to start it off on the right foot, so make filling your new home with fond memories easy from day one.
