Moving can be stressful and exhausting, whether you’re moving down the block or to a new city, or even halfway across the world. It can be time-consuming and very draining to figure out your new life, environment, and home, settling in, and of course, the dreadful unpacking stage.

However, there are ways to make packing easier for yourself and your family. With a few tips and tricks, you’ll be settled in, having a great time in your new home, and with plenty of time to rest.

Some of the tip, tricks, and advice that you can use include:

1. Choose smart packing strategies

There are dozens of tips and tricks to packing like a pro, but it really depends on your personal preferences, distance, and amount of stuff you have on you. If you’re moving with major furniture items, it can help to pack things and put them in drawers and cupboards to cut down the number of bags and boxes. Another trick is to label boxes based on need, so you don’t end up unpacking random boxes with fancier clothes, off-season garments, etc.

2. Try to get your home’s keys in advance

Get your keys in advance if you can so you have some time to do a walk-through of your home and see where everything goes, how you’ll unpack and what work needs to be done around the home. This also helps you move your belongings in little by little, so by the time moving day rolls around, you’re not as flustered or stressed.

Do an inventory list of your boxes, label boxes, sort out what you need because being organized will save you a lot of trouble.

3. Make necessary changes and repairs early

Before you unpack most of your things, get essential repairs, and changes out of the way. From repairing doors and windows to baby-proofing switches, sockets, and stairs, make sure your home is safe enough to settle in completely. This will also make the cleaning process easier so you can get that done once your repairs are complete.
