The Order Of Packing

It is entirely based on preference to make an optimal packing order. Some people like to pack rooms in two lots, one round to remove the non essentials, and one round to complete packing; some people like to pack their living room; others still like to pack where they can and when they can.

It is good to start with deciding on what’s unimportant and can be packed first. You can start deciding on a packing schedule after de-cluttering thoroughly, packing any books and out of season clothes. Your packing schedule should allow for anything you need to use and take into account any redecorating or repairs you want to undertake.

Don’t leave out too much since these essentials should be packed over the last day, or you’ll find it very difficult to finish packing in time. As one of your first tasks, you can pack wardrobes, your garage, and shed. You could then store any boxes there, or in cupboards, if you don’t use your garage and it’s secure.

A good place to start are books, videos and DVDs which leave your essentials out until you are about to move. You should take place over the four weeks preceding your move for packing your bedrooms, toys, and clothes. However, you may want to consider keeping out only essentials and packing as much as you can.  Home offices should keep only the times they need to complete and fulfill orders over the duration of the move and pack anything that you don’t use as often.

It is probably best to keep packing your dishes, cutlery and cooking utensils for the last, alongside with any of your home office materials you use regularly. You should do it over the morning of your move, if you can. It is also for stuffs like shampoo, toiletries and work uniforms and equipment you use for your work. Even thought it might take over four weeks, packing is worth it.
