Heres some useful tips to get the most out of your packing/moving experience
Make a checklist : This is one of the most important parts. Sit down with your child and discuss everything their going to need. As you get each thing done, mark it off your list.
Get your boxes early : Dont let moving day sneak up on you and be unprepared. Staples has SmoothMove medium size moving and storage boxes in an 8 pack bundle. There ideal for small appliances, electronics, clothing, and other mid-weight items. They have a lift off lid and easy carry handles. They can double as storage space. Another handy item is the Staples Wardrobe Boxes which has a handy metal hanging bar to hang clothes on, this will shave off hours of taking clothes off hangers, folding and packing them. For those seasoned packing ninjas pick up Bankers Box SmoothMove Kraft Moving Box, which provides a secure closure without the use of tape.
Get Label Crazy : I'll assume your kid isn't a very organized person. They probably tried to pack their underwear in the same box as their toothbrush. Am I right? I thought so.
Cue the Labels and make sure they know where everything is. No more searching through every box to find one particular item. Put your shipping labels on all the boxes that will need to be shipped. You can also label and ship right at Staples.
