How to Pack for a Move

How to Pack for a Move

We are moving! We have inspections completed, documents signed and my “dream house” board on Pinterest complete. But wait! Now I have to pack? With just three weeks left before the move I am somewhere between “I want to be super organized with my packing,” and “Just throw everything in a box and I will figure it out!”


To help prepare I stumbled upon this blog by ConsumerAffairs of 20 packing tips to make moving easier. Here is what they suggest:


  1. Declutter BEFORE you move
  2. Identify “last on, first off” items
  3. Designate a “don’t pack zone”
  4. Know what items movers won’t take
  5. Know what to pack first when moving
  6. Pack one room completely before moving on
  7. Pack dishes with care
  8. Use plastic wrap on liquids
  9. Pack your clothes
  10. Identify small items with colored tape or tissue paper.
