Tips on How to Do an Easy and Organized Packing
Packing is quite easy to do if you know how to do it systematically. You have to have more time to do it though because you have to sort them first. To make things look less daunting, you should discard obvious trash, clutter and old items. If there are many dirty clothes scattered all over the room, gather them and put them in the laundry basket. Wrappers and disposable containers should be thrown away too. Old newspapers and magazines should be gathered and either sold or disposed for recycling. Doing this would immediately clear some space in the room.
Proceed to your other things and segregate the items you will no longer use. Box the things that are not needed immediately. As the moving day draws near add the things that will not be needed in your present home anymore.
When packing appliances, it would be better if you clean them first. Not only will you preserve your appliances. You will also not make a mess in your new home. If you still have the original boxes, use them. Otherwise, you'd have to find sturdy boxes that can hold the appliances. Cushion them with Styrofoam. You can wrap them with bubble wrap as well. Small and heavy things like books and CDs should be packed in small and sturdy boxes. Again even if you have to buy and pay a bit more for the packing materials, it would be worth the investment.
