Stay Organized and Avoid Losing Items as You Move

No matter how much care and effort we may put into packing, we somehow manage to always lose something. There are however, some surefire ways to avoid minimizing loss and reducing the amount of stress moving can have on us all. We offer some helpful tips to make the process so much easier.

Start packing once room at a time. It may take a bit of diligence on your part, but you’ll be much better off in the long run. Gather empty boxes and packing materials in each room you’re vacating, start with one room at a time. You decide. But don’t quibble, just work your way around each room until all of your items are  carefully packed. It is helpful to tape a piece of paper to the inside top flap of each box, and each time you’ve stored an item in the box, make a note of it on the paper. When you’re ready to unpack, you will know exactly what’s in each box.

Mind the hardware and electronics. Our households are filled with an array of electronics, laptops, TVs, game systems, in addition to the power cords and accessories that accompany them. One easy solution is to gather the cords and store them in ziplock bags and pack them along with the corresponding devices this way you’ll know exactly what cords go with which items.

Prepare a master list. Make a master list of inventory of the content of each box and what room you would like your items to go into. A master list will give you more control over where your items are and where they belong in your new place.

Label Your Boxes. On each box, indicate what room you would like your box to go into. Be sure to mark the top and sides of the box and mark “this side up” or “fragile” so that they will receive an additional amount of care.
