Are you ready for the big move? One of the most exciting events in your life can be moving from one place to another. This is because it usually denotes a new chapter—new work, love, environment, school, and a whole lot more.
However moving can sometimes be daunting, especially if you’re already in the packing stage. Which ones should you bring or leave? What are you going to do with the items that you don’t need anymore? How do you do packing itself?
Here are few important things to remember when you’re already packing:
1. Do it days or even weeks before your actual move. Unless you’ve acted on impulse, you have already determined your moving schedule weeks or months before. You should also start packing around that time. This way, you will have plenty of time to identify the items that you’re going to bring or leave, as well as your packing strategies. You can also start calling your removals company. You can have your own coordinator, who can sit down with you and discuss the removals plan that is going to be implemented.
2. Group your items together. It will be a lot easier for you to pack when you can classify your things. You can determine those that are meant for packing and those that are not. Then, you can classify them according to their packing needs. For example, vases, figurines, and your china ware may be all in one group, since they are very delicate. Your jewelry and documents can also be another, because they are your personals. It is also important that you can label them properly—or at least designate a code. You can use your designation when you’re already labeling your boxes.
