08 Mar Moving medications and important documents
Moving day can be a stressful time with closing on a new home, doing a walk through on a new apartment, and wondering who is going to pick up the kids from school.
One way to help remove some of the stress of moving is to keep medications or important documents you. A moving best practice is to pack all medications, import documents you will need for closing or leasing, money, keys, etc. in a separate pouch or folder and keep it with you. It is an easy way to keep these items with you so they are there when you need them.
We all have good intentions of unpacking as soon as the boxes arrive at your new home, but many times, packing can be hectic and even though you have every intention of unpacking immediately, that enthusiasm fades once you have moved into your new home.
It is also a best practice to pack items together based on when you will need them. For example, packing and clearly marking boxes, that contain dishes, cookware and spices. These items will usually be needed within the first day or two of moving into your new home. Items, such as winter clothes, may be less important when moving in July. You know those boxes have a lesser need so you can focus on more important items to unpack.
