you’re planning your move, at the beginning, the task seems
impossibly large. There are so many individual items to pack, you
want to just have a massive yard sale, get rid of it all and then
start fresh in your new home. It’s a nice fantasy, but for most of
us, it’s not practical. The good news is, with a little thought,
and some time, you can organize that massive mountain of packing into
a bunch of smaller, doable tasks.
your possessions into different categories will help you figure out
ways to space the packing over the weeks before your move, leaving
you to concentrate on moving when the big day comes. Here’s a look
at some of the items you should set aside and leave until the very
Documents – this includes your most important documents such as
any lease or mortgage documents, IDs, utility information, and other
vital paperwork. Be sure to include your address book.
Medicines & everyday toiletries – these you should be keeping
separate for the whole move in a case or box that is with you at all
Batteries, chargers, cords for portable entertainment – this is
especially true if you have children. You don’t want to move in
and then have to search through boxes to find a way to relax and
unwind after the move. Staring at the walls isn’t an option!
Basic cleaning supplies – these can prove just as handy for
cleaning up your old place as they will for sprucing up your new
one. Be sure to include paper towels or cleaning cloths.
Bedding – keep enough for the first night on hand. That way, you
can get a decent night’s sleep in comfort.
Pet supplies – food and medicines for your furry friends, just as
you will have them handy for the rest of the family.
Basic tools – a box cutter or multi-purpose knife, screwdriver,
tape, scissors, flashlight, a hammer and a couple of nails – basic
tools that may come in handy at any time.
Basic utensils – a can opener, plastic plates and cutlery for that
idea is, you don’t want to move in and have to immediately
unpack...anything. Having the basics handy and then keeping them with
you in the car, or easily accessible in the truck, means that you can
finish moving, and then stop to take a breath and congratulate
yourself on your successful DIY move before tackling those stacks of plastic moving boxes full of your possessions.
