  1. Plan Ahead: Start packing as early as possible and make a packing schedule to help you stay organized.

  2. Gather Supplies: Make sure to have all the necessary supplies, including boxes, packing tape, bubble wrap, newspaper, and markers.

  3. Pack Room by Room: Start by packing one room at a time and label each box with the contents and the room it belongs in.

  4. Pack Heavy Items in Small Boxes: Place heavy items, such as books and tools, in small boxes to make them easier to handle.

  5. Use Bubble Wrap and Newspaper: Use bubble wrap and newspaper to protect fragile items, such as glassware and picture frames.

  6. Label Boxes Clearly: Label boxes clearly with the contents and the room they belong in. This will make it easier for you and the movers to keep track of your belongings.
