How to Pack: Organizational tips when moving boxes

Organizing while packing is important.

Organizing while packing is important.

Getting prepared for the move can be made easier in several ways. However, one of the best ways is to organize your items ready for the move-in before you finish packing everything. This doesn't have to be hard, as organizing boxes and labeling them properly will have a big effect on the entire move.

When packing, it is important to keep in mind what your new home will look like. Your new place will obviously not be the same as the old one, so it is important to keep this in mind. What you should do is take everything that is going into one room and put these in the same boxes. Pack them correctly, as organizing them will maximize space for the items you need transferred. Do this for every room, and keep all of the boxes together.

Now that you have this accomplished, you need to think about what is inside the boxes, and where they need to go. You may need to go to the new apartment and check out the space in each room so you know what you can fit where. With this in mind, you can continue your quest to have everything moved efficiently. Writing down what you think you can fit in a room may help you get organized.

After this, it is important to not only label the boxes with what is in there, but also make it easy to differentiate what will go in what room. This is an important way to make it simple for you and those helping you. For example, you may want to put all of your dinnerware in the same boxes and label them as "dinnerware." Then, take a colored sharpie and put a blue spot on it. All kitchen items having the same spot will allow you to make sure that it is organized. Do this for all the rooms in your new home.

Finally, when putting the boxes away for the move, keeping ones together that are going into the same room could save a significant amount of time. If you know beforehand what rooms are going to get boxes first, giving them to the moving company last will be the best way to do this.
