Moving is never easy but I've found that if I do these 7 things, it helps take a little of the stress out of a very stressful situation.
This is a biggie when you're packing for your move. You don't want to move things that you never use.
Save on packing supplies
Packing supplies can get really expensive real quick, so you want to make sure you shop around. I did a lot of comparison shopping this time around.
Easy box labeling system Red meant that we didn't need it and it stayed in the storage unit, green meant that it needed to go to the apartment.
Packing glasses and dishes Once packing paper came out, we used that but it's expensive and was thrown away after the move, which is a huge waste.
Mattress bags If you've moved before then you know what a pain it is to move a mattress, and keep it clean.
Shrink wrap This is, hands down, the best thing ever when you are packing up to move.
Visit the doctor To make it a little bit bearable I make sure we visit all of our doctors right before we leave.
Clean linens There's nothing worse than getting to your new place and not having clean sheets or the shower curtain is nowhere to be found.
