Inventory and Categorize

A good way to begin packing for your move is to take an inventory of your belongings and sort them into categories. This lets you get the best idea of the quantity of belongings you own and allows you to categorize them accordingly.

Gather Your Supplies

It’s hard to begin packing for a move if you don’t have the supplies to do so. One of the most important things to do when beginning to pack for a move is to gather the supplies you need. Packing essentials include boxes, packing tape, bubble wrap and more.

Identify What You Can Pack First

After you know exactly what you need to pack, the next step is to identify what you can pack first. We suggest starting with a room that isn’t used often like the guestroom, garage, attic, closets, or basement. Starting with under-utilized rooms and belongings first allows you to begin the process of packing without interrupting your daily life.

Make a “Do Not Pack” List

If you still have some time at your current home, there are bound to be everyday items that you shouldn’t pack until your last day at the house. If you are in this situation, you should make a “do not pack” list of items so that these crucial items don’t accidentally get packed.
