57 Point Home-Moving Checklist

Tip #7: Clearly Label as You Pack

It is hard enough to pack and transport everything you own from one home to another. Doing all of that and remembering what box everything is packed in is next to impossible.

Clearly labeling your boxes and organizing their contents based on each one’s expected room location in your new house will save you the time and hassle of digging through boxes on a wild goose chase later. You can even take your labeling one step further and color code your boxes by room. Colorful sharpie markers or duct tape can be used on the outside of boxes, so you can easily identify which boxes need to go where during the move.
Moving houses is no easy feat, but it doesn’t have to be as stressful as most people make it out to be. While moving ranks in the top three of most stressful life experiences, careful planning and organization can eliminate the anxiety brought on by moving.
