Make a list
Make a checklist of things to do that lists everything from gathering moving supplies to updating your address with the postal service.
Have plenty of supplies
Make sure you have enough boxes on hand. Plan on packing books in small to medium boxes so they don't get too heavy.
Utilize wardrobe boxes
Use wardrobe boxes to pack good clothes and make it easy to transfer your clothes back to the closet in your new home.
Color coordinate your labels
Mark your boxes with colored labels so we can unload them to the correct rooms and save you sorting through piles of boxes.
