When we are packing up, a lot of times we end up losing a lot of little items that we could have sworn we had but couldn’t find them after the move. This can be frustrating because we end up going out to the store to buy them and then find it a week later in an obscure box.
Often when moving, you're left with a bunch of odds and ends
Going out and buying little things here and there after the move can start adding up to hundreds of dollars. If we pack properly this all can be avoided.
You have little items all over your home in different rooms that can get lost very easily. Get a box and label it odds and ends and then state from which room. Then wrap all those little items from that room in one box.
You might find that some rooms like the office and bedroom might have more odds and ends than your other rooms. You’ll have to buy more boxes for them then. Just to make sure that everything is organized and that you aren’t missing any boxes, write down odds and ends from which room followed by a box number.
Then, when you are making the move into your new apartment or home, you can simply move each box into the room that is stated on the box. You’ll know you are missing a box if you can only find box 1 and 3 from the bedroom.
Following this simple layout will make sure that you can find all of the odds and ends in your home, as well as make everything a nice and organized process.
You can even go the extra mile by marking on the outside exactly what should be found on the inside. There are so many different ways to pack up your odds and ends. Find a system that works well for you but always make sure that it is an organized one.
