I will give you some solid advice about moving. Trust me, this plan works. I have done it this way myself and was moved out of my apartment and into my new house in ONE day. That's right, ONE day.
Before Moving Day, you should be packed and ready to rock.
Get Boxes. You can buy them from Home Depot, Lowes, or go to your local liquor store or grocery store and ask for their discarded boxes. Who doesn't love Free boxes?
While I don't like to pay for boxes, the wardrobe boxes are worth it. You transfer all your hanging clothes from the closet to your wardrobe box. Then when you move, you transfer the clothes, which have remained nice and neat to the closet. Done!
Pick a Room. Yes, Pick One room to work in at a time.
Throw away or give away stuff you don't need, use, or want. There is no good reason to transfer clutter from one place to another.
Pack up everything, Yes, everything. Only leave out what you will need to use to live for the week.
Label your boxes.
Set-up your utilities! It is good to note that the utility companies do not work on the weekend and it takes time to put you on their schedule. Do this at least a week before your move-in date.
Phone your family and friends to help you move Or schedule a moving service. If you are using family and friends to help, don't forget Moving Truck rental!
Transfer Boxes/ Furniture from one room at a time.
Once a room is empty, clean it and shut the door.
Leave the kitchen for Last. Pack your food in coolers. Once everything is removed, clean the kitchen and leave your old place behind.
Arrive at your New House and unload. Your truck is packed by room!
Stay Hydrated! Feed your friends and family! Pizza and Beer go a long way.
