9 Packing Strategies to Make Your Relocation Easier

R

elocating to a new place means leaving your comfort zone and starting a new life. Whether you’ll be living independently or moving with family, bringing your personal belongings with you will definitely make your new environment feel more like home in no time.

 

Knowing how to pack like a pro will come in handy, and save you tons of time and energy as you get settled. Here are packing strategies that will help you to relocate without a hitch:

 

Get Rid of What You Don’t Need

Before getting down to packing, you may want to check for things that you can eliminateYou can do a lot with these items, such as donating or giving them to neighbors and friends, recycling or even holding a garage sale and scoring some pocket change in the process.

 

Make Sure You Have All the Right Tools

Before moving day itself, you may want to sit down with your family members or roommates and create a list of what you might need to make sure a smooth-sailing process. Here’s a list inspired by MakeSpace that might help you get started:

 

  • Cardboard boxes 
  • Storage containers 
  • Packing tape 
  • Packing paper 
  • Measuring tape 
  • Broom 
  • Extra Screws
  • Ziploc or vacuum-sealed storage bags
  • Bubble wrap
  • Basic toolkit 

Don’t Procrastinate

The best way to pack is to do it little by little. The worst thing you could do to yourself is to delay packing just a few days before the big day. You can start by packing things that you do not use regularly such as decorative items until all that’s left are your day-to-day essentials.

 

Sort and Pack Everything by Category

If you have items in bulk, you can sort these and pack them depending on their classification. You can categorize them by item or by the different rooms in your house. This will definitely make unpacking and organizing your new home more efficient and less complicated. 

 

Handle Everything with Care

Make sure to take extra care of fragile items such as mirrors and electronics by protecting them with bubble wrap or packing paper. You can also opt for blankets or even shirts and socks (for smaller items) if you’re trying to save on cardboard boxes and bubble wrap.

 

Clear Storage Bins Will Come in Handy

You may want to use clear storage bins for items that you will immediately need once you arrive at your new home. This may include cleaning materials, garbage bags, tools, power strips, phone chargers and whatever else comes to mind. 

 

Take Pictures Because They Last Longer

If you need to disassemble electronics or other items, it will help if you take pictures of how they look to make re-assembling them less tedious.

 

Don’t Forget About Your Luggage

If you don’t want to spend a lot on cardboard boxes, make sure to check if you have available luggage and containers that can be used as well. Every available suitcase, big or small, can be put to good use, so make sure you utilize them all.

 

Pack Your Closet in One Fell Swoop

Packing the contents of your closet can be time-consuming, but wrapping your clothes while on the hangers can save you lots of time. You can move them as is and hang them back inside your new closet as soon as you get to your new home.

 

Keep in mind that relocating to a new place is a big step, and moving day itself can be one of the most stressful days of your life. Lessen the stress by taking note of these packing tips, and by making sure to strategize all aspects of your move.
