You have to make sue that you have plenty of packaging supplies. It is always better to make sure that you have more then you need rather then less or otherwise you will have to run out at the last minute trying to find more. If you have extra materials, these can be used to safeguard and separate the larger appliances and furniture from being damaged while in transport. Make sure that you are packing ahead of time as well. Start off by placing the boxes into each room and packing up the least used items to the most used. As you empty out drawer or closet, color number the box and write it down on the list for later.
You need a list, not just before, but one that will be used all the way to the end. Start off with estimating the amount of packaging materials that you will be needing and write this down creating a shopping list of sorts. Once you have your packaging, use this list to keep track of the boxes. Stuff will et miss placed, but knowing what is what makes finding it a lot easier. Assign a color to every room of the house, and all the boxes that are packed in that room get the color plus a number and the contests will need to be placed on your list so that you can find them later.
This one is important and too many people fail to do it. If you are packing up bookends, do not place them in separate boxes to maximize the use of the box or it will be harder to find them later. If you made sure to have many different sized boxes, then you will be able to select the right box for the items you are packing. When you try to fit something in one box and it does not fit, do not move it to another box unless like items are also going with it. Most importantly though, do not mark on a box until you are ready to tape it shut. Having multiple marks on a box can make finding stuff very difficult.
Sometimes we can’t help but to have cramped living quarters. Maybe you had a house and had to resort to renting an apartment instead. But you are planning on buying another house shortly. Maybe you’re in the military and you were stationed in a different area and returned to London. Meanwhile, you’re waiting in an apartment with your until you are found bigger living quarters. No matter what the rhyme or reason, you’re cramped. The kids are fussing, you keep stubbing your toes on the cursed wardrobe that’s stuck in the middle of the living room, and your wife barely has enough elbow room in the kitchen to so much as open a can of soup. It’s tough, and something has to be done in the meantime.
