Label Your Boxes Properly
Labeling your boxes may seem like a tedious step, but it can be extremely beneficial when you finally move your boxes into your new home, especially that very first night. After a day of moving, it’s unrealistic to expect that you’re going to unpack everything all at once. If it’s late at night, the only thing you may want to do is unpack your sheets and go to bed. However, if you fail to label your boxes, you will have to go through each box until you find the items you’re looking for.
To save yourself the headache in the future, take the extra time to label each box as you pack it. Some people may decide to label each box with the exact contents that are inside, whereas others may feel satisfied with a simple color-coded system. Regardless of how you choose to label your boxes, you will be happy that you did, especially if you plan on storing your belongings in a self-storage unit for a certain amount of time.
Place Heavy Items in Small Boxes
When you’re packing, it can be very tempting to put heavy items like books into one large box. However, you have to keep in mind that packing numerous books into one box can quickly become heavy before the box is even full. If you must pack all of your books together, then the best thing to do is to pack them into smaller boxes. With less room, you may pack more boxes, but you won’t have as much space to overload with heavy objects. That being said, if you are determined to use as few boxes as possible, then consider packing heavy objects with lighter ones, such as t-shirts or sweaters.
