Getting everything arranged when moving is by no means an easy task. Whether you’re moving in Sydney or out of Sydney having all your belongings arranged will allow for an easier transition. Surely you would have accumulated a lot of both necessary and unnecessary things throughout the years and separating between the two can pose a lot of difficulties and also discourage you from getting everything done is productive as possible. However, as long as you have a plan, and you tackle everything with the right mind set and apply adequate organization to the process, it doesn’t have to be half as tedious as you may have initially thought.
The first rule to packing is to get rid of all the junk. Sit down for a couple of hours and sort through all the things you won’t need and will not need in the future and get rid of them. There’s no need to take these things to your new home. You’ll be a lot happier you did it, and save yourself a lot of work when you’re ready to unpack.
Once the only things left in your house are those that you will need in your new home, you have got to figure out where to put them and how to organize them so that your unpacking process is just as easy as packing was, and possibly even easier because there will be no junk to sort through.
Now the main things that you will need when packing include:
- bubble wrap
- a marker
- ziploc bags
The best thing to do is to have all of these supplies in one area so that they are easily accessible when you need them, and thus you won’t have to spend a lot of time running around in chaos trying to figure out where you had put what.
Gather boxes of different sizes. This allows for easier separation as well as easy transportation. Big and heavy boxes will be a lot more difficult to transport and rather than having to waste masses of tape on one box that may still fall apart, arrange them properly from the get-go.
Separate items by the rooms they belong in and label them accordingly. This makes things easier once you have your moving company pick them up as they will know just where each box belongs. And of course it makes things easier for you too because you will be able to identify thing more easily and won’t have to rip through every box just trying to figuring out where you had packed your toiletries.
Pad your boxes properly to add support and prevent breakage. Fill in empty spaces with towels, wash cloths or clothing. However, keep things in order and avoid mixing products from different rooms. This is where newspaper comes in handy if you need to fill in a space, and haven’t got any other loose items to fill the spaces with. For things that may break easily, use your bubble wrap for added protection.
When packing plates, add padding to the bottom of the box for cushion, wrap them in newspaper and put them in vertically. Where gaps still exist fill in with some more newspaper and tape the box securely.
Books, as they are heavier items, should be packed in smaller boxes. Wrap securely with stretch wrap if you have any, if not, tape the box tightly.
When packing bathroom supplies, or other items that are subject to spillage, be sure to secure the top with saran wrap in order to prevent them from spilling. It’s also a smart idea to keep them from any clothing or other items that may be stained just in case leakage does occur.
Put screws and other tiny items in a Ziploc bag and label them so that you’ll know where they belong. Pack in the smallest box you have and also, be sure to label the box.
