Check out this great moving day "open me first box" list of ideas. The Chargers caught my eye in particular. Salt and pepper make the list! Change of clothes would make mine. Plus a toy for Riley along with dog food! Blankets and pillows are a must! What are your additions to the list?

When Your Clients Move, Suggest an OPEN ME FIRST Box

Everyone HATES moving.  They like getting there and being there.  They rarely like the in between.  However, it can be less stressful if they take a few moments to think about what they will need between leaving here and living there! 

If you suggest that they pack an OPEN ME FIRST box, you could be the hero in their eyes.  This box needs to go either in the vehicle with them or last on the moving van.  




This box should have anything that makes life comfortable from the moment they arrive….sheets, bedding, the utensils to make a first meal, dishes and silver, and salt and pepper.  Also, towels and washcloths, shower curtains and soap.  Think picnic for food, and think camping for showers and bedding.



Make sure it has a hammer, screwdrivers (phillips and slot and maybe some vodka and orange juice, too!  LOL!)  If the electronics haven’t or won’t be available right away, perhaps a radio will fill in for a day, too.  Make sure all the charging stations are either in your luggage or this box, too. 


This is just some advice from someone who has been there, done that a couple dozen times.  And, I thank him for the great advice. 


Best, Ron

I used to be a mover in my 20's and always told people start packing one box and room at a time, be sure everything is labeled on all sides so you can see it while stacked, and bring the most important items in your car with you.
