I learned this little moving tip 3 or 4 moves ago, but it has been so helpful that I really need to pass it on. In fact, I didn’t have a chance to do this on my last move, and I really wish I had!
Make labels (computer labels) for the various rooms of your new house. Print several pages of the labels. Apply the label to each upper left hand corner of the box. Label all sides of the box. This way when people bring the boxes in you can identify the room it goes in without searching the top of the box. This is so much easier than writing on the box!
Also, I think it’s important to make a list of contents on the boxes that go in the kitchen. If you don’t have the luxury of unpacking it all at once, at least you can get to what you need without opening all of the boxes.
Do you have any tried and true moving tips?
