Getting Packing Down To A Fine Art


When you move to a new home, a variety of emotions can come into play. It’s a stressful time; the whole build up to it may have taken weeks, if not months, and when the day finally arrives you don’t really have much time to move your whole life from one place to another. It’s said to be more stressful than a divorce, so the least that you can do is try and organise your packing to try and take away some of the negativity surrounding it.

Buy The Essentials

You will need to make sure that you have everything available and ready to start your packing - and as early as possible. You don’t have to go over the top with this and make it so that you’re sleeping on bare floor for weeks due to the fact that the bed is already in storage ready, but packing up the items that you don’t use on a day to day basis a couple of weeks beforehand can really help you on your timing. If you don’t already have it, buying a roll of bubble wrap is a blessing for protecting the more small, delicate items. Getting hold of boxes in a variety of sizes is something that can take a couple of weeks in itself - doing a post on social media asking for them will often see hundreds being thrown your way. The last thing that you need is tape, and then you’re good to go.

Organise Your Help

Don’t be afraid to ask for help with your packing. The majority of people have help from top movers from specific moving companies to get the items from A to B, but seem reluctant on asking those who are assisting with the move itself to lend a hand before the big day. Realistically speaking, it will save you so much time; when we are packing away our possessions, we tend to stop and think about the history and sentimentality of everything that’s going into boxes. Things that we haven’t seen in years crop up, and so we sit flipping through photo albums, reading old letters and generally wasting precious time - those who have no attachment to the items going in the boxes just put them straight in.

Don’t Be Afraid To Go Over The Top

The more that you plan, the more smoothly that the move will go. It’s as simple as that. Don’t think that you are being over the top by colour coding your boxes or putting directions in with everything you pack of where in your new home it needs to go. This can actually be quite a useful thing when it’s unboxed at the other end. Not only that, but those that are helping can be directed more easily if they know exactly what they need to do, especially if they can follow a system and you’re not actually spending more of your time telling them. This is your time to go stationery crazy and put all of your ordering techniques into practise.
