Moving? Where Should You Start With Your Packing?

by Byron Matthews

While it can be a fun and exciting adventure to move to a brand-new home, it an also bring with it a ton of stress. Luckily, the majority of this stress can be combated by creating a strategic plan that will ensure that the moving and packing process goes smoothly. With that being said, you should make sure that you know which rooms are most ideal to be packed first. Read on to learn more.

Attic and Basement

Ultimately, you should begin packing the storage rooms in your home, such as the attic and/or basement. Items in these storage rooms — collectibles, old memorabilia, holiday decorations, etc. — are not used very often, and as a result, you won't miss them if they are packed up for a short period of time. While it is true that these items are indeed important to you, if the items are not used on a regular basis, then they should be packed as soon as possible.

Closets

Once the items from the attic and/or basement have been organized and packed, you should move to the closets in the home. Depending on when moving day is exactly, you can probably pack the majority of your clothing. For instance, if moving day is in a couple of weeks, you can pack all of your clothes and other belongings from the closet except for the clothing that you will require within that period of time. If you are not sure where to begin, then just start by packing the clothes that are out of season.

Other Non-Essentials

After the attic, basement, and closets have been packed, you need to sit down and consider what will be needed between now and the time that you move. Anything that is not necessary and essential should get packed next. For instance, china and specialty items are not essential or everyday items and can be packed. While artwork and pictures create a visual appeal for your home, they are something that you are able to live without until you move. Other non-essential items may include candles, books, picture frames, extra linens and towels, and board games.

By focusing on the aforementioned areas first and foremost, you can help create a smoother and less stressful moving experience. If you would like help with the packing or moving process, don't hesitate to reach out to a professional moving service in your area, but make sure to do so well in advance as moving services do get busy during certain times of the month and year.
