One thing often over looked on a long moving day is just how exhausted you can become. The movers have dropped off all your items it near the end of the day and you just want to rest and go to bed, but you can not find your essentials. By packing an overnight bag with all your essential and keeping it with you in your car can solve this problem. Having that bag after a long hard day helps prevent you from having to dig through multiple boxes.
Another way to quickly see where your items are is to pack your belongings in clear plastic bins. This makes seeing what the contents are quick and easy. Did you run out of bubble wrap or packing supplies? Men on the Move has all the supplies you need, but if you still need to wrap breakables, you can use clothes to save on bubble wrap. If you have a lot of open toiletries, you can place saran wrap over the top then screw the cap on to prevent leaks.
Storing plates vertically, like a record, can help prevent breaks. Also using Press n’ Seal over dresser drawers helps to keep everything in place. These are some great tips to help your next move go as smooth as possible.
