Organizational Tip: Moving Day

Blog on 2 Nov , 2015 by Caitlin Chana Hill

I just moved to a new house, and not unexpectedly, it threw my whole “practical home management” groove way out of whack. There are many things I still can’t find, I am getting used to the new places where everything goes, and there are boxes upon boxes yet to be unpacked. However, I did implement one extraordinarily helpful tactic which I’d like to share with you for anyone who finds themselves moving sometime in the future, namely: all the things that I knew I would need right away I packed in a suitcase and brought it with me. WOW! What a help that was! Now, certainly there were certain items I forgot, or learned only after the fact that I should have included them (hand towels is the first that comes to mind), but nonetheless I think I saved myself an awful lot of trouble by doing this. So, without further ado, here is my list of things to keep close by when moving:

movers
  • Clothes for two days
  • Toothbrush & toothpaste
  • Soap & shampoo
  • Bath towels/bathrobes
  • Hand towels
  • Tissues & toilet paper
  • Nail clippers
  • Razor
  • Advil
  • Daily vitamins/medications
  • Cell phone, iPad & charging wires
  • Pen & paper
  • A few plastic bags for trash

Did I forget anything? What other items do you recommend? Share below!
