14 Organizational Tips Before a Move


organizational tips before a move

When you are planning a move, organization is key. The more organized you are, the easier and smoother your move will be. Here are 14 organizational tips before a move to help make this move the most efficient one ever.


1. Declutter First: One of the most important tips before you start packing for a move is to declutter your home. This will help you save time, money and energy during the packing and moving process. Go through each room in your house and get rid of any items that you no longer use or need. You can donate, sell or recycle these items instead of packing them up and moving them to your new home.


2. Plan a Packing Strategy: Once you have decluttered your home, it's time to start planning your packing strategy. Decide which items you want to pack yourself and which items you want to hire professional movers to pack for you. Make sure to plan ahead and give yourself plenty of time to pack before your move.


3. Make a List of Each Box Contents: As you start packing, be sure to make a list of the contents of each box. This will come in handy when you're unpacking at your new home and will help ensure that nothing gets lost in the move.


4. Pack in Advance: Another important tip is to start packing well in advance of your move. This will give you plenty of time to organize home before packing (see tip below) and will help reduce the stress of packing closer to your moving date.


5. Organize Home Before Packing: One way to make packing easier is to organize you home before packing. This means taking the time to declutter (see tip 1 above), as well as organize each room in your home so that you know what needs to be packed and where everything is going.


6. Pack Room by Room: Another helpful packing tip is to pack each room in your house separately. This will help keep things more organized and will make unpacking at your new home much easier.


7. Label Everything: Be sure to label all of your boxes with the contents and the room they belong in. This will save you a lot of time and frustration when you're unpacking at your new home.


8. Plan How You Will Unpack: As you're packing, take some time to plan how you will unpack at your new home. This will help ensure that your unpacking goes smoothly and that you don't end up with a lot of boxes to unpack all at once.


9. Keep Essentials with You: When you're packing for a move, be sure to keep any essential items with you. This includes things like medications, important documents and valuables. You may want to pack these items in a separate box or bag so that they are easy to find and access when you need them.


10. Put Heavier Items on Bottom of Boxes: When packing your boxes, be sure to put heavier items on the bottom and lighter items on top. This will help prevent your boxes from tipping over and will make them easier to carry.


11. Don't Leave Empty Space in Boxes: When packing your boxes, be sure to fill any empty space with smaller items or packing material. This will help prevent your items from shifting during the move and will make your boxes easier to carry.


12. Don't Mix Items from More Than One Room in a Single Box: Be sure to pack each box with items from only one room. This will make unpacking at your new home much easier and will help keep your belongings more organized.


13. Tape Boxes Well: Be sure to tape your boxes well so that they are securely closed. This will help prevent your items from falling out during the move and will make your boxes easier to stack.


14. Consider Hiring Packing and Moving Services: If you're feeling overwhelmed by the thought of packing and moving, consider hiring professional packing and moving services. These companies can help make your move much easier and less stressful.
