Moving Tip # 12 Using Personal boxes, might be one of the most important moving tips we can give
- Use brightly colored storage tote boxes, one for each person.
- Let each family member fill their box with items they will want ‘right away’ in the new home — a set of sheets, a towel, a couple of extension cords, a phone, nightlights, address book, pens and paper, keys, tissues, travel cosmetic case, and so on.
Make sure that the personal boxes are easily distinguishable from, say, the two dozen plastic bins you have used to store holiday decorations, board games, or other items that you do not need access to right away. Buy a different, bright color so you can find the personal boxes quickly and instruct your Houston moving company to place them in each personâ€™s room or in a central location to avoid having them buried and inaccessible.
The more organized you can make your move, the easier the transition will be.
