You may be moving to a house, apartment, or condo. No matter how big or small, you will have rooms and spaces. For instance, the bedrooms, bathrooms, laundry, garage, and maybe a loft, etc. Each room and/or space gets a number.
I like to start at the front and then number them in order as I walk through the house. You may want to start with garage as #1, or put it last. On my list I have also divided the garage into sections. I am leaving myself a lot of flexibility. Many of the boxes will go into the garage by number, so as I decide where I want to put things I can go to garage and get them, rather than stacking up in the house and moving them around several times (ex. books, decorating items, etc.) Also, having to ‘live’ with a bunch of boxes is overwhelming, so I put in the garage until I am ready for them.
As I pack, I mark each box on top with the corresponding number so the movers can it easily see it and then take box directly to each room.
Before the move in date each room/space in the house is marked with that number. I just take a piece of paper and a sharpie, mark the number, and tape it on the wall. saves a lot of ‘where does this go?’ questions.
On moving day, Bill or I will stand in front and tell them where to place even the furniture based on the room numbers.
Let’s face it, moving can be a hard time of stress, all the preparation and the actual packing while you are still trying to ‘do’ your life is a strain. Moving day has it’s own issues, and then there’s all the unpacking. If you can pre-plan, and maybe try a few of these tips, you may find it will make those steps a little bit easier. It helps me.
