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.

If you want to get extra-prepared, you can also take some extra cleaning supplies, batteries, and clothing hangers for unpacking your belongings into your new closet. Don’t want to have to dig through your kitchen boxes for pots and pans? Keep your slow cooker separate from the rest of your kitchen utensils, and bring along the ingredients for a crock pot meal that can keep you fed while you get everything set up.

Packing this bag saves you a lot of time, and a lot of money and trips to the store to buy things you can’t find in your huge jumble of packed belongings! Make things easy on yourself and have your moving day bag be the first thing you get started packing.
