Whether you’re looking for a home for sale in Alys Beach, a condo in Destin, or a home on a large parcel of land in Santa Rosa Beach, one thing is certain: Once you find your dream home, you’ll have to pack up and move.
If you’re like most people, you don’t look forward to moving—but these three tips will help things go more smoothly.
3 Great Packing Tips to Make Your Move Easier
Packing Tip #1: Get Rid of Some of Your Stuff
You don’t need to move things you don’t use, so if you haven’t used something in a year, it’s time to donate it, sell it, or throw it out.
Packing Tip #2: Make Lists
The more organized your move, the better off you’ll be. Make a list of everyone you need to contact before you move—the cable company, utility companies, and each of your mailed subscriptions. Make another list of everything you’re moving, room by room, so you don’t lose track of anything. (If you’re hiring movers, they’ll work with you to create an inventory.)
Packing Tip #3: Label Everything
Each box needs a miniature packing list so you know what’s in it. That way, even if you stick something in a last-minute box, you’ll know right where it is once you get to your new home. List the contents of each box just before you tape it shut to make sure it’s all accurate.
