One of the most difficult parts of moving to a new home is figuring out where to begin with packing. This can feel overwhelming, which is why many people procrastinate the packing process.
Local elderly moving services provider Busy Buddies, Inc. discusses the items to prioritize packing when moving in today’s blog post.
Items in Storage
These are the first things to pack when moving. Found deep in your walk-in closet, garage or storage unit, these are easy to deal with because they are most likely kept inside boxes. To make your move a bit easier, take inventory of everything you have in storage and donate or throw away anything you no longer need. Consolidate the remaining items into fewer boxes.
Like all the items stowed away in your garage or closet, out-of-season clothes should already be packed and thus are easy to deal with during your planned move. Get them out of the way so that you can focus on the other priority items as you declutter your home.
Rarely Used Dinnerware
It is likely you won’t be hosting a fancy dinner right before or after a move, which is why the rarely used chinaware stored in your kitchen cabinet should be one of the first things you pack. Make sure these boxes are carefully labeled as fragile.
Items Hanging on the Walls
Artwork, picture frames, and other wall hangings can also be at the top of the packing list as you won’t be needing them urgently after you move. You can take your time unpacking these items and decorating your new home after the move.
