Edit Before Moving
Spring cleaning shouldn’t just be limited to the Spring! Before you move, go through all of your items and decide whether to keep, toss or donate. Look at each item— do you need this item and will this bring you joy in your new home? If the answer is yes, pack it up! If the answer is no, it may be time to let go. Doing things like checking your kitchen for expired foods/spices and donating old clothes you don’t wear will make your future move so much easier! Devote your space to what you love!
Box By Category
Once your items are edited, your future self will thank you for packing like items together.
For example, pack things like hanging clothes together, workout clothes together and swim all together — the list goes on! Remember, sort and pack “likes with likes.” Seeing how much of each category you have allows you to designate a proper home for those items in your new space.
Categorizing this way will also help you locate those long lost items you’ve been searching for, and help you figure out whether certain things should live in different rooms entirely.
Pro Tip: Pack what I call a "Move-In Box. This box includes the very first essentials you will need in your new home. It is the last box to load on the truck, therefore the first box into your new home. It should include the following:
Set Priorities and Unbox Accordingly
Everyone needs a good game-plan. What are the most important rooms in your house? What rooms will you be using the most, right off the bat? Tackle those areas first.
Pro Tip: Unpack your room first. If you are tired, nothing else in the house will function correctly. Follow by kids’ rooms, then the kitchen, then the rest of the home.
Break Down Boxes & Tidy Each Day
It’s amazing what a little decluttering can do! After each day’s unpack session, walk around your home and pick up all trash, empty boxes, garbage etc. and dispose of it before bed. Your space will feel cleaner, more open and you’ll have less cleanup to do the next day!
