Moving tips Home Life / Suddenly Single

Hello everyone!

Welcome to my blog on practical advice for living. Today’s tip is about moving to a new location (which I have personally done 22 times).

Keep in mind that you need to mark your boxes on all the sides, so that you can tell what is in it, no matter which way you look at it. Marking a box on the top will not help, since your boxes will be piled high. Instead, list the contents (and the room the box belongs in) on all four sides.

A very dear friend of mine once moved across country and she wrote index cards for each box. Her sons needed to be entertained as they drove, so guess what they did? Right! They played “how many cards can we dump outside the car without Mom noticing?” They were very successful.

She, on the other hand, had a boatload of numbered boxes and no idea what was in them.
