The first place to start when preparing to pack for a move is to decide what things you are planning on taking with you and what things that you are planning on getting rid of or donating. If the move is temporary, there might be things that you want to put into storage instead of taking with you. Before you start packing, make sure you decide what items you are taking.

It’s a good idea to have your supplies before you start packing. Make an estimate of the things you will need, including boxes, packing tape and other materials, and have an adequate amount of these supplies before you start packing to move into your new house.

When you do start packing, the first thing you should pack are things that are not essential. If you start packing a month and a half in advance, you can begin by packing things you can live without before you move. For example, if you are moving during the winter, you can pack things like summer sports equipment because you will not need it right away.

When you are packing boxes, it’s a good idea to label them so you know exactly what the contents of the boxes are. Some people like to take pictures of the contents of the box as well as labeling them with text in order to help them remember what is inside the box. Make sure that you label the box with any special instructions, especially if you are planning on using movers. This can include things like “Fragile” so that they are more careful with those items and they do not get broken accidentally.

When you are moving, you should keep an inventory list. This means numbering the boxes and listing their contents on a checklist that you can hold while boxes are going out of your old home and into the moving truck to be transported to the new home. This can help in case any of your boxes go missing, so you know what to claim for insurance.
