Color Code Your Boxes

If you want to make unpacking a breeze, then color code your boxes. Each room in your home will have a corresponding color, and you’ll simply mark moving boxes that way. For example, if you choose red for your kitchen, then you need to have something red on your kitchen boxes. You can use red stickers, red tape, or red marker as long as get’s the job done.

Have the Thrift Store Come to You

Save yourself the time it would take to drive to your local thrift store and donate what you’re not taking with you and have them come to you. Most thrift stores are more than glad to come you. Plan in advance for this one, because they usually don’t come the same say you call them.

Hire a Sitter for the Big Day

Moving day can be very stressful. Your front door it going to constantly be open and you’ll have a lot to organize. Make life easier and hire a sitter for your kids and pets. Then you won’t have to worry about where your kids are or if your dog escaped.

Pack an Overnight Bag

At the end of moving day, you’re going to be tired and you won’t want to hunt down everything you need for a comfortable evening. That’s why you should pack a bag with a pair of pajamas, toiletries, and your cell phone charger. You’ll be glad you have this when your staring at endless boxes.

Pack a Picnic for Dinner
