Moving Organization

Have you ever found yourself standing in the middle of the room, blankly staring at the walls trying to figure out where to start packing? We’ve been there! Moving organization is key to making everything run smoothly and can take a bit of time to get everything packed. Get your Rubbermaid tubs and a notebook ready because we have four easy moving organization tips to get your boxes in a row.

Make an Inventory List

Make an inventory of everything you have. During the move items can be scheduled to go to different locations such as storage, someone else’s home, your car or the moving truck. Having one central list that describes everything you own is helpful once you begin unpacking and tracking down items. Separate the list into rooms and categories to keep it well-organized and easy to navigate. On this list, also have a column that denotes the condition of your items, especially when it comes to larger pieces of furniture or high-ticket belongings. Your future self will be thankful for this moving organization tip!

Label All Boxes

Every box that you pack should be labeled with several pieces of information for safety and moving organization purposes. Be sure to label each box with your last name, the contents, and the room. Also, label the box as fragile if its contents are at all breakable. Clear organization and labeling will speed up the amount of time it takes for movers to unload your items.

Have a Moving Day Essentials Bag

There are certain things that you will want to have with you during the move rather than sending them with movers or in a buried box. Your essentials bag should hold everything you will need as you move from one spot to the next. This is the perfect place for toiletries, clothes, any medication, and a few other key items. Have snacks, paper towels, trash bags, water bottles, phone chargers and important personal documents on hand.

Get Utilities Organized

Many people focus on the physical aspect of moving and often forget about the little details like scheduling, transferring, or cancelling utilities. After a long day of moving, the first thing you want to do is to sit down and be able to watch TV or stream a show. It’s the little things that start to make your new place feel like home.  Also, don’t forget to update your address with the USPS!

Moving organization can be exhausting and you might want to throw everything in a bag just to be done but putting in extra effort upfront will make the move feel less stressful.
