profmom Posted June 26, 2009 Share Posted June 26, 2009 I found one thread on this and read a bit online: ~ Gwen in TX (I think it was) said not to put the boxes into the house, but into the garage, sorted by room. :) Bring them in one at a time to unpack after the furniture is in place. ~ Organized Home says to print a bunch of mailing labels with room names on them. Put 4 labels on each box, one on each side in the upper right corner. Can also prioritize boxes with numbers or ABC. (I'd still list some of the contents on the box.) ~ Here's one from a past move: put a sheet down on the floor, lay hanging clothes on top, tie sheet corners to carry. (Surely this would only work for moves across town.) Please share your tips and advice for packing and moving! We are moving to a house about 5 minutes away. We'll pack and move ourselves, with the exception of hiring movers for our furniture only. We'll ask to have access to the house before the closing date, but we don't know yet if we'll have it. Our closing date is July 15th, a little less than 3 weeks away. What should we be focusing on: now, 2 weeks from the date, 1 week from the date, etc.? We would appreciate the advice! :bigear: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
