Get Rid of the Items You Do Not Need

  • Throw Away Box – This should be a box for the items that are damaged, broken or completely useless.
  • Donate Box – If you have some items that are in good shape, but you do not need them anymore, consider donating them. You will make somebody really happy!
  • Sell Box – However, if you need some extra cash, you can always sell the items you do not need. Sell them online or organize a yard sale.

Create a Moving Inventory

Another great way to help you organize is to create a moving inventory or a moving checklist. Here, you should write down all the items you plan on relocating. And,  this will also help you keep track of your possessions during the moving process. You can create this list alone, with the help of friends or let movers do it. Afterward, do not forget to reward the people who helped you move!

Pack One Room at the Time

If you are in a hurry or simply have difficulties organizing, try packing one room at the time. This proved to be a lot quicker and organized way of packing. So, pack the garage, attic, basement, or any storage room you have first. Then, switch to the bedrooms. Again, pack one bedroom at the time. Leave packing up the kitchen and the bathroom for the last day, as those two rooms you will be using until the last moment.

Label Everything

Well, it goes without saying that the key to an organized move is proper labeling. So, go all out. Label absolutely every box you pack. You can even write down the content of each box on its sides. Moreover, if you have some items that are valuable and easily breakable, do not forget to write ‘Fragile’ on the box. Use a permanent marker for labeling your boxes.
