1. Sort your items by category.

Instead of packing your goods by room, try packing by category. For example, pack all your clothes into boxes labeled “Clothes,” books into boxes labeled “Books,” etc. You can do the same for shoes, important documents and so on.

2. Start packing as early as possible.

You’ve probably already heard this more than once, but start packing as soon as you can. You don’t want to be in a fully furnished house a day before you move. Save yourself a headache and get going now!

3. Change your address about a week before your move.

This is usually something people forget to do, even after they’ve already moved. Stay ahead of the curve and change your address for your bills, credit card statements, Amazon account, etc.

4. Leave a box aside for items you’ll need right away.

This might entail everything from clothing and snacks to toiletries, such as toilet paper, a shower curtain, soap, towels, your bed sheets, silverware, etc. You don’t want to be digging through boxes in your new home trying to find these items after a long day of moving.

5. Pack your dishes vertically.

When you pack your dishes vertically instead of horizontally, you save yourself a TON of space in your moving boxes.

Pro tip: Use your t-shirts and other clothing items to wrap your dishes in. This will help you save on bubble wrap and will effectively protect your plates and cups. On top of that, you’ll save room in your suitcase.
