Packing for a big move is notoriously tricky and stressful. And without a doubt, moving is never easy for anyone. But there are some ways to lessen the burden. Having a solid plan in mind can save you from a host of issues ranging from forgetting valuable things to being unable to transport treasured furniture to your new house. 

We have talked about a few moving tips on the What to Keep in Mind When Packing to Move to a New House Part 1, let’s continue in part 2! 

Moving day 

The big day is often when most people make mistakes. Be fully prepared for the move-don’t leave things for last-minute packing. It is how you lose or forget items. You’re also going to get hungry, so prepare a cooler with nourishing food, so you don’t have to go looking for food while you’re busy. Preparing food in advance will allow you to dedicate your time to unpacking, and it can be surprisingly helpful to keep your mood in check on moving days.


Unpacking is something everyone struggles with, and our recommendation is not to put it off and instead get it done as soon as possible. Getting your new house in order in time is essential, as a clean and clear living space is essential to living the next chapter of your life. 

The first thing to do is designate an area for used plastic wrap and cardboard boxes. A clean, organized space will help you keep track of things and is safer than a cluttered space when moving fragile or valuable items. 

Start with the areas you need to use immediately, such as your bathroom, fridge, and bed. Once they are done, unpack your rooms in the order of how quickly you can get them done. These steps will give you a sense of progress and make it easier to keep track of things. 

As you go, break down any cardboard boxes and put them in your recycling area, as it frees up floor space and helps you feel like you are getting somewhere. More importantly, it allows you to keep your space manageable.
