    Great list of tips. I’d like to add one which I recently read and found quite important. Prepare a first night box. Start putting items in it early just as you would in any other box. Canned food, snacks, eating utensils and toiletries are just some examples of essential items. You probably won’t be able to unpack all your boxes the very first night, so this box will save your sanity. I’ll be moving next month and will definitely try it.

    I found the idea on this blog post full of packing tips for moving house

    Moving is not a one man job. It is time consuming and overwhelming at times.
    These tips on the preparations that need to be done before the actual packing
    and moving are essential and will make the moving process fast and easy.

    I would also recommend, once you have followed these 10 tips and your home is
    ready for the big move, that you use a professional moving company that can
    guarantee satisfaction. The company I use and trust is All My Sons Moving and Storage. They do an amazing job time and time again. AMS is the best for anybody who
    needs a professional and stress-free moving job.

    Good Luck!
