Moving out of a home can be undeniable stressful. Make things as easy as possible for yourself
1.- Don't waste time driving to a donation center. Contact a local nonprofit ( or use a service like donationtown.org ) for pickup so you never have to leave home,
2.- Pick up a quiet moving day. Weekends are the busiest days to move. Choosing another day of the week save money with a moving company.
3.- Double down with cloth items. Wrap breakables in clothing and linen. Pack glasses and stemware in clean socks,
4.- Label the top AND sides of boxes. That way you don't have to move the boxes to read what's written o them.
5.- Use dresser drawers as boxes. Wrap tightly with a plastic wrap and they're ready to go!
6.- Photograph electronics before dismantling. It will be easier to reattach all the cords and wires in your new home.
