No one likes to move, but it’s something that everyone usually must deal with at some point in their lives. Below are some tips for making the notion of packing up everything you own and want to keep and transporting to another place a little more palatable.
CHECK WITH LIQUOR STORES
Liquor stores always have ample numbers of cardboard boxes left over from their shipments of alcohol inventory that come into the store on a regular basis. So swing by a few liquor stores to see if you can have a few of their left over cardboard boxes, which will save you money on purchasing cardboard boxes, or other boxes when you pack up your items. Maybe buy a bottle of champagne or two as well when you are at the liquor store, to celebrate your move!
LABEL ALL BOXES CLEARLY
Many boxes look the same, especially when they are packed up and you are exhausted from moving all day long. So as soon as you pack up a box, write what room the items belong in and maybe even what is inside of it, which will not only be helpful for you but any movers you have brought along to help you through this arduous process. Make sure to write fragile on the boxes with fragile items inside!
PROTECT YOUR BELONGINGS INSIDE YOUR HOUSE DURING AND AFTER YOUR MOVE
Make sure you protect all of those items you are moving into your new house or apartment during and after your move.
