Relocating can be a stressful time for the entire family. Whether you are relocating for a job or you have just decided it is a move that is best for your family, there are a lot of logistics to manage. Keeping a firm handle on these logistics are the key to reducing the stress of the moving and enjoying the adventure. One area that you can reduce stress in is the organizing of the moving including the packing. This should start with packing with the same sized boxes.
Using same sized boxes is a good way to get the packing organized and ensure it will fit in the moving truck well. These can be purchased at storage unit facilities as well as most places that rent moving trucks. Use strong packing tape and easily visible markers to mark each box as to room and contents. This will eliminate the need for searching through boxes for what you need at your destination. Start the packing as early as you can to avoid the pressure of packing quickly and to ensure that you are packing wisely and not just tossing things in boxes randomly. Creating lists of your moving tasks can really help you focus in what could otherwise be overwhelming. Stay focused and give yourself enough time to do the tasks well.
