Nothing is worse than moving into a new place and rummaging through moving boxes and bags to find the things you need.
An important tip for moving before you start packing is to make sure you have all of your essentials at your finger tips. Making a list of things you use on a daily basis, is a great start. Think of it like a moving carry-on bag. What things couldn’t you live without?
Moving doesn’t mean your life will stop. We still have to get ready for work, take care of little ones, and make sure pets are fed. There are tons of items we use daily, that we wouldn’t normally give a second thought. But, when we need them and they aren’t readily available, it can make even the most organized home owner go into panic mode.
To help make your post-move time a stress-free time, we polled our staff to find out what their moving must-haves are.
Charissa, “I immediately thought of Tylenol, so a mini first aid kit would be one of my must haves! For an all-season list, an extra change of clothes and one extra pair of socks. You should always have an extra pair of socks!”
Javier chimes in, “Depending on the scenario… if it were the end of the world, I would grab my kayak! But in all seriousness, I need my phone charger. Extra socks and underpants! A tool box to put together furniture, it’s always good to have.”
Alli thinks out loud, “Cell phone charger and personal hygiene are number ones on my list. Moving is hard work, and I want to feel clean and refreshed when I wake up in my new place!”
