Don't stress about your upcoming move. Helping Hands Moving has hundreds of tips to help your family pack with ease and still have time for a family meal!
Necessity boxes - Each necessity box should be labeled clearly with it's contents and should be the first box that is loaded and unloaded from the moving truck/container, etc. Many people pack:
That way you have a day (or several) to rummage through your other boxes and you still have your necessities at hand.
Less Boxes - The first way to do this is to leave your clothes in the dresser. Ask your local moving company to tape or wrap the dresser so that the drawers are secured. If the dresser is to heavy and can't be taken with the drawers, remove the drawers and wrap them in shrink/plastic wrap to protect the belongings. Once you get to your final destination then all you have to do is unwrap each drawer and put it back into it's correct place.
Employ Elastic Bands - tied Elastic bands (rubber bands) can be tied around the hangers to prevent your clothes from slipping off. You can also use this method as an organizational tool by organizing your clothes: Pants, Shirts, Skirts, etc. As soon as you arrive to your final destination you can simply put them in the closet and move on to the next task!
Utilize Take Out - Why stress yourself out by cooking dinner while moving? Your pots and pans should be packed away so don't stress over dinner. Order in for your family and get back to packing and organizing! Give yourself a break and enjoy some family time during your upcoming move.
