Moving can be stressful, not to mention chaotic – especially if you jump into it unprepared. After packing everything up and making the big move, the first night at your new place can also be pretty uncomfortable. But there’s a method to the madness of packing that can make the transition less of a headache.
Experts recommend you start the process by packing a “moving night” box. It should have all of the essentials for your first night at your new home. That means pajamas, toilet paper, a phone charger, and any other toiletries or personal items you can’t live a night without – not to mention food and drinks!
You’re also going to want to make sure you’re ready to make the new house a home. Gather all the tools you need to set up your furniture and pack them in one box. And a bonus tip that makes the world of a difference? Label all the boxes as you pack them –especially fragile items.
