The One Thing You Need to Remember on Moving Day


Moving can be so stressful! Whether you’re moving by yourself or with a family, there is so much that needs to be done that it can be easy to forget the most important thing you need to do on moving day. What is that, you ask? You need to pack a moving-day bag.

The Problem

Often when packing, you put everything in boxes, and when you’ve finally finished, you’re completely tapped out. When that kind of exhaustion sets in, it’s hard to bring yourself to rummage through a huge pile of boxes looking for the necessities of everyday life when you just want to rest.

The Solution

Fortunately, a little forethought can stop this nightmare scenario. All you have to do is pack your moving day bag first.


It helps to have a bag for each member of your family. Make sure you have a change of clothes and toiletries for each person, plus a plate, cup, and set of silverware. Be sure to include any necessary medications for each person, any electronics you use regularly, and at least one roll of toilet paper.
