Moving Tips: What To Pack First?

When you’re contemplating moving, the whole process can seem overwhelming. You try to take stock of all your possessions, and thinking about every little item, all those drawers, cupboards, and shelves full of objects that need to be packed, and it all seems like an insurmountable task.

Take it easy!

That’s the best advice. The fact is, that impossible task is actually a bunch of much smaller, very doable tasks. When it comes to packing, it helps to think about where you’re going to start. Here are some tips.

  • Basements, attics, garages, and closets – look for items in storage. This would be a good time to purge whatever you can as well.

  • Prepare large appliances that you’re not currently using for the move, such as lawnmowers and other garden equipment, snow blowers, and so on.

  • Clothing that’s out of season.

  • Non-essential items – this can include anything from seasonal decorations, knick knacks, figurines, and other decorative items to artwork.

  • Any "extra” items you have, such as multiple spare towels or bedding, good sets of dishes.

  • Books, DVDs, music CDs and other entertainment – naturally, keeping out enough to keep you entertained until the day of the move.

  • Specialized items, such as any kitchenware you may not use on a regular basis.

  • Guest rooms and other rooms such as a formal dining room – these can be packed up without disrupting your basic routines.

Note – the items that you pack first will also be their boxes first, so you’ll want to make sure there’s adequate protection against dampness, temperature extremes, and other environmental issues. That means plastic wrap in some cases, and storage in an area that isn’t subject to environmental extremes.

Once you begin to get organized, and have a concrete place to start, the whole process will unfold much more smoothly. Remember – it’s a series of many small steps, not one giant leap that you have to make.
