Packing and preparing your home for a move can be quite a task, especially if you’re not clear on what moving supplies you’ll need. (This is understandable, since you’ve got an entire household to pack!) There’s no need to worry – read on for a few easy tips that can help you pack your items efficiently and prepare for the move.

First, acquire all the boxes you’re going to need. Talk to the staff at A-1 Storage for some guidance on how many boxes (as well as other supplies) you should get.

Pack the Rooms You Use the Least
Note down the things you’ll need in the last couple days just prior to your move, such as clothes, kitchen utensils, cleaning products or electronics. Set those items aside and start with your spare rooms, decorations, closets, and anything that is not a necessity. Remember to keep your essential items like your wallet, smart phone, medications and other important paperwork with you. Place them in a bag or small box that you can access as needed.

Pack Up One Space at a Time
It’s easier to keep organized if you’re methodical and you focus on just a single room at a time. Also, it helps keep items from that room in the same boxes. This way, it’s easy to label the boxes accordingly and unload them into the appropriate rooms at your next place.
