Packing Hacks to Simplify Moving Day

If you’re dreading moving day, it’s time to work on simplifying the process. Use these packing hacks and enjoy a simpler day as you prepare to make your move.

Do the Packing and Unpacking Yourself

If you have other people helping you, they’ll be wanting to know how they should pack the items and where they should go. You’ll spend all your time answering questions. It’s easier to do all the packing and unpacking yourself. Then, you can recruit help for the loading and unloading stages.

Try Color Coding the Boxes

Choose different colors of duct tape and then decide on a color for each room of the home. Tape the boxes using the corresponding color. This makes it easy to know where each box should go when you’re moving.

Put Books in Small Boxes

Books can be heavy, so don’t try stuffing them into huge boxes that no one can lift. Instead, choose small boxes for books so no one throws out their back trying to lift those books.

Eliminate Expired Items

Whether it’s makeup, medications, or food, lighten up all that you’re moving by eliminating expired items. You won’t have as much to move and you’ll save yourself the hassle of dealing with that clutter after you move.

Donate Items You Don’t Use

As you’re packing, keep track of things you don’t use anymore, such clothing that doesn’t fit or electronics you just never use. Just eliminate the clutter and donate any good items you’re not using. You’ll help someone else and you’ll make your life easier when it’s time to unpack.

In the excitement of moving day, don’t forget to make sure that your home is properly insured. Find out more about your options by contacting Idaho Select Insurance.
