7 Tips to Help Your Items Stay Organized During Your Move

If you are getting ready to relocate, then almost everything in your home will need to be packed and organized. Here are a few tips to help you stay organized during your move:

  1. Set Up A Packing Station

Set up an area in your home that is your family’s “packing station”. Here, you can have an assortment of boxes of various sizes, newspaper to help protect delicate items, labels, packing paper, chunky markers, and a tape gun. You can set up this packing station in your garage or on any large, flat surface in your home.

  1. Invest In A Tape Gun

The sheer amount of boxes that you will need to wrap and close warrants an investment in a tape gun. If you are trying to tear off bits and pieces of tape with your hands, you will quickly become fatigued and it can lead to less stable packaging.

  1. Declutter

Moving is a fantastic opportunity to declutter. During the packing process, you will have to touch everything you own, which gives you the opportunity to make a decision on whether you want to keep the item or whether it should be given away, sold, donated to charity, or thrown out. If you can’t picture your life in your new location or house with the item, find a way to dispose of it.

  1. Make Notes Of What Is Being Kept Where

You can use Evernote to make notes of which items have been packed, moved to storage, or placed in a temporary storage facility. This will help you keep track of your belongings during the packing and moving process.

  1. Use Skitch for Larger Items

Skitch is a free Evernote add-on that lets you add notes and sketches to pictures. During your moving process, you can use this to take pictures of larger items such as cabinets, televisions or furniture and make annotations of the dimensions on the pictures. This can be an easy way to keep track of the sizes larger items that you want to move into your new house to make sure they fit into your new rooms. You can also use these dimensions and photos to upload the items to eBay or Craigslist if you need to sell the items later (that way, the seller will have the sizes of the items they are considering purchasing).

  1. Create a Moving Binder

Dedicate a binder to documentation that will be needed during your move. Things like your moving company’s contact details and receipts, hotel bookings, flight information, and so on can be kept in this binder.

  1. Hire a Professional

The last thing you want is for a moving company to arrive late, or to arrive at a wrong day, to damage your items during the move or to get lost during the trip.
