Tips for moving

The weeks leading up to moving day can start wearing on your nerves a bit, but happily there are a few tips that can be very helpful in alleviating some of this stress and can make the entire process a good deal more pleasant.

One good tip is to keep a firm hold of your keys.  This might sound fairly obvious but the reality is that when you are making a move absolutely nothing seems to be where it would normally be found.  Make sure that your keys are always kept either in a specifically designated area or in your pocket to ensure that you do not misplace them and then have to waste time trying to find them again.

Another good tip is to make sure that you have plenty of garbage bags on hand at all times.  Garbage bags tend to be used up pretty fast during relocation; they are not only useful for garbage but can also be very helpful when it comes to protecting blankets and pillowcases in a convenient and inexpensive manner while packing them in boxes.  Order garbage bags online and get them delivered or make certain you have a backup supply before starting packing.

With regard to cleaning supplies, you should keep a list of everything that you are going to need so that when you arrive in your new home you have everything to hand.  Remember that moving trucks do not allow aerosol or caustic cleaning supplies on board.
