Moving House: What are your best moving hacks?

Moving House

Yes, I am moving house this weekend! YAY!

Naturally, that means we’re all grumpy and deeply resent packing to move back after renovations. I also think we’re dreading it because moving out and into this temporary place was an absolute nightmare. NIGHTMARE. Started at 7:30 in the morning and ended at 1:30am the next morning — which is when the movers left because they didn’t know what they were doing OMG.

Yes, it was that bad.

Which is why I am asking for your best moving hacks. And, my posting and replying to comments and checking out my favourite bloggers (HIIII!!!) might be a bit erratic.

If you don’t hear from me after this weekend, send help. Nods.

    Hire a company? XD save yourself the trouble? Might create a hole in your pocket tho…
    Otherwise, I have no idea. I’d probably lose my sanity. Oh.. extra wine? if you like wine? I hear that can help make packing fun 🙂
    It’s a good way to downsize tho, isn’t it? You find things you no longer need, and maybe throw out?

      wine check!

      Have hired removalists, but we are packing lord, so much packing! Definitely throwing stuff out!

  • VERY IMPORTANT

    1) take the opportunity to get rid of what you don’t need or use so you don’t have to carry those.

    2) LABEL VERY box! What is in the box, room of the new house where they go and even in what piece of furniture they go. Eg. “Main bedroom, books, nightstand’s first drawer” that way as you get that box out of the truck you can put it exactly by the nightstand where it should be unpacked

    Another tip… pack your cloths in their hangers in the order they are in your closet all you have to do it get them out of the box and hang them as they were. Pack every drawer in a separate labeled box if possible. Hope you have fun. 🙂

      We are being ruthless — or trying to be ruthless when it come sto clearing out. Nods.

      Labelling — we forget to do that sometimes! SADLY learned that the hard way when we had to move out of home and I was opening different boxes to find clothes #woops! Mercifully, we’re moving to a spot near where we are right now, so the plan is to load the car’s backseat with everything in hangers and just go put them in the cupboard there. Naturally, it’s supposed to rain buckets. SIGHS.
