We all know how nail bitingly stressful moving house can be. However, the people who find it the most stressful, often don’t bother to look up suitable hacks before it’s time to move. There are actually more hacks than you think that could make your life so much easier as you move. Here are 10 of the best:
Organise Cords With Toilet Paper Rolls
When folding up your cords, use toilet paper rolls to keep them apart from other cords and stop them from getting tangled. You can even label the roll if it’s empty so you know exactly what that cord is for.
Take Pictures Of Wires
Take pictures of wires at the back of TVs and places you might find it difficult to set up again. You’ll be so glad you did this when you’re faced with 100 wires and none of your appliances are working.
Wrap Dishes In Your Shirts
To kill 2 birds with 1 stone, wrap your breakable dishes in your shirts. It’ll stop them from cracking and you’ll save money on bubble wrap.
Colour Code And Label Boxes
Colour code and label your boxes so that you have an easy job of unpacking when you get to your new place. You’ll know exactly where the boxes have got to go, and which box to go in if you need something.
Cut Handles Into The Sides of Your Boxes
To make it easier for you and your moving company, you could even cut handles in the sides of your boxes. This will make it less likely you drop something as you unpack, and make it healthier for everybody to lift.
Roll Your Clothes
Instead of folding your clothes the traditional way, roll your clothes instead. Things won’t get as creased and you’ll save so much space!
Use Plastic Wrap Around Cabinets
Plastic wrap your cabinets and you won’t need to worry about draws falling out and valuables breaking. You can just unwrap it and place it where you want it.
Use Apps To Help You
Apps like the Moving Day app are just perfect. You can use it to track what you have packed, and there’s even a label maker and scanner built in too. The best way to get organised!
Hire A Cleaner
Instead of spending lots of time cleaning your old house, packing up and getting everything dirty again, simply hire a cleaner to do it for you once the house is empty. You’ll save time and effort, for the sake of a little extra money.
Unpack The Bedrooms First
The bedrooms should take priority, because, you know, sleep. Then it’s the kitchen. Unpack in an order that makes sense and you’ll have a better time in your new home.
