When you live in a larger home, it can be easy to start filling your space with beautiful, and sometimes oversized, furniture. However, now you’ve decided you’re ready to move on to a new home! Now comes the task of disassembling and packing everything up. It can be overwhelming to take on packing up your entire home. We’ve put together tips for packing to help make moving out of your large space a little less stressful.
Measure everything and downsize
Depending on how small or large your new home is, the first thing you’ll want to do is take the dimensions of each room. This will let you know if all your current furniture and fixtures will fit in your new home. If you have less space, this indicates that you may need to downsize your collection of furniture before you go forward with the move. Having a good sort through your items before a move is a good idea regardless! Be sure to donate anything that is in good condition that you and your family no longer need. This saves you the trouble of moving everything first without knowing if it will all fit or work for your needs. If you’ve hired movers, downsizing first will definitely save you some money.
It’s essential to have a plan, no matter how large or small your space is. We recommend packing everything up room by room and labelling each box clearly. The last thing we want is for you to be eating cereal out of Tupperware because you can’t find the bowls. It may also be a good idea to pack up some essentials in a suitcase for your first few nights in your new home. This ensures you have all the basics close by in case you have trouble finding anything important.
