What room should you pack first when moving? How soon should you start packing? Moving is a process and for some, it is one of the most stressful events in their lives! However, you can make it less stressful when you handle the packing portion with a well-thought-out plan.
Before we answer that question, we do suggest that you take inventory of your home. Are there items that you know that you don’t want to move with you? If so, now is the time to get rid of them whether you donate these or give them to a family member. Next, be sure you are prepared with the packing materials that you are going to need to pack your home up. These packing materials will include:
- Packing paper
- Bubble wrap
The idea behind preparing now for the packing process is going to ensure that you are not having to stop and start while packing…which can save you tons of time!
What Room Should You Pack First When Moving?
There are two ideas when it comes to which room to start with first when packing. There is the idea that you start with the room that is used less in your home. The other school of thought is to start with the hardest room to pack. Keep in mind that the bathroom, bedroom and kitchen should be some of the last places that you pack, even if they may be the hardest!
Which is the best option for you to start with? That is entirely up to you. However, keep this in mind: if you were to start with the least used room in your home, then you may be able to start the packing process sooner. This can help you to spread out the packing so that you are not getting completely overwhelmed by your move.
