Moving forces you to appreciate how much you truly have. It can be intimidating to pack, especially if you have a room or two that is cluttered and overflowing with belongings. Here are some tips to assist you in remaining organized during your move.
Organize Prior to Packing
Sort your clothing and belongings into three piles: “Keep,” “Throw Away,” and “Donate.” Decluttering and getting rid of some of your old junk can feel great. Donating gently used items prior to moving provides a fresh start and also helps those in need. Your trash could be someone else’s treasure, so don’t toss everything! Gently used clothing, toys, and furniture can be donated to charitable organizations.
Pack a Bag of Essentials
After a long day, the last thing you want to do is organize a search party to locate your toothbrush, soap, makeup, toilet paper, and dental floss in unlabeled boxes scattered throughout your home. That is why it is critical to pack an essentials bag with all of the items you will need after you move into your new home for the first time.
