Focus on the packing side of things rather than the moving. You’ll be amazed how quickly many helping hands – either professional movers or your friends – can carry all of your boxes. You don’t need to spend time trying to move these items yourself. To make packing a little easier you can focus on these areas.
- Sorting and Disposing- You don’t want to waste time packing and moving items you no longer use or want. Start by decluttering your space. Have a garage sale, sell items on craigslist and donate items to goodwill or your favorite local charities.
- Organizing and Labeling- Keeping items organized and clearly labeled as you pack each room will make it easier when unloading the truck and can save time when unpacking as well.
- If You Have Time- Once your home is packed and if you want to move some stuff yourself, then you should focus on moving items like plants, pictures, collectibles, and your highly-sentimental belongings.
