1. Organization is 🔑 - This is not the time to procrastinate. Sort through your items weeks before the move and label each box with the name of the contents. Number each box so that when the movers have dropped off all of your belongings, you will know if anything might have been left behind at the previous residence.
2. Figure out your strategy 🚚 - Are you going to hire a moving company? Borrow a friend's truck? How will you get your contents from point A to point B? How many trips will it take for the furniture and boxes? Plan at least a month ahead of your move in date to secure assistance.
3. Establish an unpacking system 📦 - You will be faced with hundreds of tasks to remember for your move in day. Create a master moving to-do list and assign each person a role. Each person can pick a room to unpack so that no overlapping occurs (such as forks in two separate drawers). Refer to an inventory list to make sure that you've unpacked and stored everything in it's set storage place.
