Who doesn’t love a good game of Tetris once in a while? For fun at least that is; maybe not when it comes to packing and moving. Packing for a stressful move is bad enough as it is, don’t make things harder for yourself by then challenging yourself to a stacking puzzle with your boxes and belongings. Here are five tips on how to make packing and moving a lot less of a puzzle.
Use The Same Size Boxes
Using the same sized boxes to pack makes for a more organized move. When you have boxes that are a bunch of different sizes, you are stuck trying to make them all fit with each other. This giant game of Tetris leaves you with a bunch of boxes ready to topple over at any given moment. When you use a moving truck, you don’t want to open the back and see all your household belongings all over the place.
Have A Mapped Out Plan
Often when we are moving, we rush and pack things and can’t remember where we put them. This game of hide and seek gets old and turns into frustration pretty quickly. Avoid this part of moving by mapping out on paper where all your belongings are. It doesn’t have to be professional, though it can help you keep track of your belongings with very little additional effort.
Organize The Move
When you are packing the moving truck or storage unit, be mindful of where you place things. Try putting the things you will need last or least at the back of the truck or unit and the ones you will need first or soonest at the front. This way, you bypass reshuffling to free up the boxes you need.
Use Storage Lockers Or Units
When you move, you may not need all your belongings immediately; additionally, you might not have space for everything right away. Renting storage space and storage units can alleviate some of the pressure. Finding a storage unit that is big enough for all your stuff is critical if you want to avoid playing clown car with your belongings.
