Packing may seem like the next impossible puzzle, but packing is a process that requires patience and foresight. There is no rhyme or reason for everything, so before you start packing your stuff and moving into a new apartment, remember that there are no rhymes or reasons behind everything. Some are hesitant and leave packaging in the wrong place, which can lead to lost or damaged items.
Before placing even one item in a box, you need to prepare carefully for the next step. Here are some tips on what to pack first and when to move to a new location, as well as some of the best packaging tips.
First, create a packing calendar to keep your packing plan up to date, and also make sure you have packing tape. By interrupting each step every day, you can help to ward off the feeling of being overwhelmed.
START EARLY Once you have a good idea of what you’re dealing with, it’s time to address the question of when to pack first when you move. Next, create a detailed inventory of all the items you own and divide them into categories you will keep, such as items you need to sell, donate, or discard. If you are satisfied with a number of employees or articles, you can take the opportunity to throw away non-essential items and save valuable space and effort.
Remember that you should have a calendar that dictates your schedule, not a schedule dictated by your calendar, such as your work schedule or your personal schedule.
Here’s a better breakdown of what to pack and when to pack, but if you start with the little things four weeks before the move, you’re lagging behind.
When you start packing, make sure you keep your basic needs and daily needs late in packing. If you don’t pack vital things, don’t pack them until you’ve started with the “little things” four months before you move.
- Electronics: phone, computers, tablets, etc.
- Kitchen Equipment: cutlery, dishes, and drinking glasses.
- Laundry: trail bags and bags of dirty laundry.
- Medicines and Bathroom Supplies: make a first aid kit that can be carried around.
- Furniture and Appliances: Disassemble furniture so that they can fit the boxes
- Curtains, Rugs, Other Furnishings: The “miscellaneous” categoryToolbox: basic tools for assembly jobs at your new place
- Bed and Bedding: it’s now time to transport your bed and sheets
- Remaining Toiletries: be prepared
- Items for Children and Pets: getting back into a daily routine quickly after the moving
- Cleaning Supplies: clean up your place one last time before you leave
In the first few weeks of the move, pack your pet things along with all remaining puzzles, books, toys, clothes, and other items. Residents should bring bed linen and towels that are still in use, such as towels, blankets, pillows, and sheets. Make sure that all devices except phones, computers and tablets and all other electronic devices are omitted.
The rest of the kitchen should now be ready for use, including cutlery, crockery and drinking glasses. Make sure you have enough clean clothes just to get you where you are going, if you carry a bag or bag of dirty laundry, it will slow you down.
Pack everything that is not vital, such as recipes, but make sure you have your first aid kit with you. This is not the easiest part of moving, but it is one of the most important parts of any move, especially in the first few months of your life.
