Packing is a way too time consuming and difficult task. It needs managing and sorting and also planning the products which are to be needed on frequently or later.
1.Pack Like You're Going on Vacation
We'll get into the big stuff next, but first things first: set aside the essentials. You're going to need mainly clothing and toiletries which should fit pretty easily into any standard carry-on suitcase. Keep aside all the needed essentials in a big suitcase, like packing things for a vacation. This isn't as comforting as having everything in its usual place, but you'll know where your necessities are and you won't accidentally pack any of them. When all your other packing is complete, you can just zip up your suitcase and drive it over to your new home.
2.Sort your things First
Packing by room is an ideal worth pursuing, but it's not necessarily realistic. Some of the time you'll have electronics from the living room fraternizing with the soft pillows and sheets from the bedroom in order to save on packing materials. At times you may want to wedge a book from another room into a box that has just a little extra space left. There are all sorts of situations in which you may want to mix contents from room to room, but it makes keeping track of what's where a lot harder. If sorting by room does work for you, stick to it. If you want more flexibility, there are other options.
If you have a lot of soft items, they should be kept all in one place. As you unpack you'll know the first thing you'll need to do is take that soft item to its appropriate place. Be sure to set aside bed sheets and the minimal number of pillows for their own box so you have them ready to go as soon as you move in. If you have room, include these items in your essentials suitcase.
3.Keep a note of miscellaneous Things Too
You'll also find that you have a lot of miscellaneous items that don't belong to any particular room but just happen to be wherever they are. Find all of these items first, set them aside, and use them as filler for any box. Packing these items in a particular way (such as placing them in a plastic bag with a specific marking on it, such as a star) will help you keep track of what's miscellaneous filler and what isn't.
4. Be organised about keeping the boxes
Overall, however, you'll want to keep boxes as room-specific as possible. Even if you're moving to a small apartment and not a multi-floor home, having everything in its correct place when it's time to unpack will prevent unnecessary stress. You'll be in a new environment and won't know where you put every single thing you've moved. Staying organizedduring packing will save a lot more time and effort in the long run. Know your system and stick to it.
