Packing Yourself, Where to Start

Packing up and moving to a new place can be a long process, and knowing where to start is the hardest part.

How to determine a logical place to begin your packing preparation?

Create a plan of attack

First, create a packing attack plan. Take a look at the time frame you have to move. Consult the calendar and write down everything you must accomplish prior to moving day. Don’t forget to include move-out items like cleaning, switching utilities, securing a moving truck, and changing your address.

Now set deadlines for each activity. This will keep you organized through the busy and chaotic process of moving.

Declutter

Before you start to packing, do some extra packing preparation by decluttering your home. Get rid of what you don’t need, don’t want, or can’t use before you move, and you’ll save time and energy.

Starting to pack

Now it is time to make another to-do list. Take inventory of the things you have to pack and set priorities for all of the items.  Make a priority box for the very last and most important items you need. You can use this list as a road map as you work through packing step by step.

When you’re starting to pack, it’s best to begin with the items that are lowest priority for your everyday life. An entirely different option is to hire a professional moving company to handle the packing for you.
