  • Inventory Your Home. Make a list of all the items in your home. Determine what items will go into storage and what items will go with you.   
  • Pack By Room. Avoid packing items from different rooms into the same box. Label each box with the room it belongs to and a list of it's contents  It will make unpacking alot quicker and easier.  
  • Pack in Order of Need.  Items that hardly get used should be packed first, for example; home decor, seasonal items and decorations. The items you use on a daily bases should be packed last like cooking utensils, clothing,bedding, toiletries, etc. 
  • Packing the Weight. Heavy items should go in small boxes and lighter items should be packed in big boxes. This not only makes moving boxes easier but will also prevent boxes from falling apart.
  • Protecting Fragile Items. Don't be stingy with the bubble wrap or paper. Make sure to fill in the extra spaces in a box with packing peanuts or paper. This prevents items from shifting when being moved.   
  • Pack an Essentials Box. Toilet paper, telephone, toiletries, snacks, coffee maker, coffee, soap, flashlight, screwdriver, pliers, can opener, paper plates, cups, utensils, a couple of pans, paper towels, and cleaning supplies are some of the essentials you may need upon arrival at your new home. Pack a box with these types of items and load it last so that it will be unloaded first.
