7 Great Packing Tips

Summer is a popular time for people to move.  The weather is nice, it’s before the new school year starts and it makes it easy to meet new neighbors, too.  However, moving can be an overwhelming and stressful time.  I found a list of 7 great packing tips from move.com to help you get ready!

Packing Tip #1: Don’t procrastinate. This seems simple enough, but getting started can be difficult. A few weeks prior to your move, start packing several boxes a day. Begin with items that are least essential to your daily life. If you pace yourself, you will be more organized and the job won’t be so overwhelming. Make packing easier by not waiting to get started.

Packing Tip #2: Pack room-by-room. Focus on one area of a room at a time and don’t mix items from different rooms in one box. To prevent miniature knickknacks and small items from being lost or mistakenly thrown out with the packing paper, wrap them in brightly-colored tissue paper.

Packing Tip #3: Label clearly. On the top and side of each box, write a general description of the contents and the room name. Use different colored markers for each room, which will provide additional clarity for you and your movers.

Packing Tip #4: Stay clean. Regular newspaper may bleed ink onto your possessions. Use white packing paper to wrap all items.

Packing Tip #5: Use boxes designed for moving. Boxes obtained from grocery or liquor stores are not always clean and might not hold the weight of the items that you will be putting in them. In addition, varying box sizes can make loading more difficult.

Packing Tip #6: Know what you can’t pack. Some common household items can’t be shipped because they are hazardous. Don’t wind up on the wrong side of the law.

Packing Tip #7: Don’t box up everything. You should personally transport heirlooms, important papers, legal documents (wills, passports. etc.), and valuables. Make packing easier by decided what doesn’t need to be packed.

Of course, once you settle in, you need to let everyone know that you’ve moved.  While we can’t help you move (sorry … we have plans that day!), we can help you with moving cards and moving announcements, personalized stampers, labels and more.

Making a Move this Summer

13 Jun

Summer is a popular time to sell and buy a new home.  Most people feel that summer is the best time to move as the weather is ideal.  If you have children, summer is a great time to move as their school year has ended and they can settle in before they start their new school year in the fall.  It’s important to let family and friends know of your move so they can update their records for future correspondence.  The Stationery Studio has three great solutions to make it easy to let everyone know of your new address:

  • 38951_BC79BC5D-E372-7A98-AB7EEB0BBF84CF48Moving Announcements – What better way to let people know of your new address than with a moving announcement?  With so many stylish designs to pick from, these are a great way to announce your move.  These are also easy to tuck into address books to make sure you’re not forgotten when holiday cards are sent.
