How to pack so you'll know where everything goes

The key to an easy move is organization.  If you start out organized, it’s more likely that you’ll end organized.  And if you’ve ever moved before, you know ending feeling organized is a task in itself!  

The best thing you can do before you start the packing process is start early and de-clutter.  Don’t move what you don’t need.  Trust me; you’ll save energy and money in the long run.

Some Fine Looking Boxes

You need to think outside the box. Whoever said that was not getting ready to move. Moving is all about the box. Make that, "boxes," because you'll need a lot of them to move. In fact, you can't move without boxes. At least not if you plan to take anything with you.

When it's time to move, you better be thinking inside the box.

The Right Moving Boxes and Supplies For Your Move

Packing for a Long Distance Move
There's a big difference between moving across town and moving across the country. Besides the extra time and expense, you also have to pack differently.

The nice thing about moving locally is that you can pack almost any way you want and not worry about it too much. You're only looking at a few minutes of travel time, so drive slowly and you're home free! When you are moving across the country, the rules change a little bit. Every item needs a secure place in your trailer or ReloCube.

Here are some things to keep in mind while you're packing your kids' stuff. They're going to need lots of love, lots of time, and lots of attention to their feelings.
