Packing Mistakes to Avoid When Moving
If you’ve ever moved, whether it’s locally or to a completely different state, you know the amount of stress that comes along with it. Between planning, being overwhelmed with packing, and making sure you have everything together financially, moving can definitely be one of the most exciting but also stressful events in your life.
One of the biggest parts of moving is packing up all of your belongings to bring to your new home. In this blog, Go Minis ® Franchising, LLC. will be sharing a few mistakes to avoid when packing to ensure you have a stress-free moving experience.
Avoid these Mistakes When Moving to Your New Home
Not Labeling Boxes
Packing can be frustrating, especially since it feels like you have to pack up your whole life into boxes that will be put into a moving truck and taken to your new home. To make sure you keep things organized, label your boxes so you know where everything is when the time comes to unpack. When you get impatient, it can be tempting to throw whatever you see in any box, but that will cause even more frustration when you unpack and your bathroom accessories are in the same box as your winter clothes.
Using Plastic Bags Instead of Boxes
You might want to take the inexpensive route and use plastic bags or garbage bags instead of boxes to pack your belongings, especially your clothes. However, tossing your belongings into a bag that will be thrown around carelessly is not the best option. There is no form of security or protection with plastic bags, and it’s possible that any items in the bags can become damaged. Using boxes will keep your belongings protected and organized. Who wants to search through plastic bags for their kitchen appliances anyways?
Packing at the Last Minute
If you tend to procrastinate with most of your tasks, packing is the one thing you should prioritize when you move. Waiting until the last minute to pack your belongings is when the craziness can begin because you will feel rushed, unorganized, and stressed out. Staying on top of things and making sure you prioritize packing will create a less overwhelming moving experience and you won’t have to worry about throwing your things into random boxes on moving day.
