Many of you would agree that packing doesn’t even sound fun, let along actually is. We can agree on one thing – packing is a process that requires somewhat of a strategy. For example, if you are moving locally and packing the last minute, it can be a nightmare. However, it doesn’t have to be! Whether you need to squeeze in your relocation into a few days or have enough time to plan everything out, we have a solution for you. When packing, the essential things to know are how and when to start doing it. This guide will make packing less tedious and more enjoyable.

When to Start?

The answer is as simple as it can be – as soon as possible! It doesn’t matter how much time you have. Even if you have months before the actual relocation day if you start early enough, you will thank yourself later for making a smart decision. Also, even if you are short on time, spending less time on panicking and getting down to business immediately will give you a head start.

How to Start?

Regardless of how much time you have, the smartest thing to do first is to start packing the items you need the least. You can start with the seasonal clothes, stuff from the basement, long-forgotten photos and school memories you know you won’t need but can’t go anywhere without, etc. Also, this cannot go without the big purge beforehand – get rid of all the items you most certainly don’t need anymore.

Conscious Packing

It’s possible to pack and do well for the environment. Instead of burying yourself into loads of cardboard junk, you can invest in reusable plastic boxes. Being eco-friendly when packing is not only trending – it’s also great for your belongings. Hard, stackable plastic crates are going to help you save all your valuable items and transport them safely – just don’t forget the padding. 🙂

So, what are you waiting for? Get down to business, and good luck!
