For most families, moving is a hectic time that leaves little time for much else. However, for many people, the only thing worse than moving is packing, and it’s easy to see why.
Before you pack, you have to organize. Before you organize, you have to clean. Worst of all, there’s the matter of deciding what needs to stay unpacked. The problem is compounded when kids, who’d prefer to keep all their toys out until the last minute, are involved. It’s enough to make anyone feel stressed!
Thankfully, our movers in Perrysburg, OH, agree that there’s a more straightforward way to approach packing without losing the essentials in the mix. Aside from the all-important toilet paper, here’s a quick list of items we recommend packing last:
- Cleaning Supplies – When you arrive at your new home, you’ll likely want to do some quick dusting, sweeping, and wiping. Keep paper towels and cleaning solutions at the top of your boxes just in case.
- Essential Kitchen Items – Eating out is a common fallback for families in the midst of moving, but if you’re watching your spending habits, it’s nice to have a few pots, pans, plates, and cups around.
- Pet Stuff – Pets need to be fed (and in the case of dogs, walked) every day, regardless of your moving schedule. Keep things simple by packing food, dishes, and leashes on top.
