Are you moving soon? I’m sharing some tips for what to have on hand during the move. These items will help the process go smoothly.
Fortunately, this will be a pretty easy move since he doesn’t have much to move and I get to move my stuff in gradually over the next 2 1/2 months instead of doing one big moving day.
Here are a few items that are essential to a successful moving day for me!
You’ll want to be sure to have plenty of snacks on hand to keep your helpers happy. It’s also a great way to take some time to yourself to recharge before getting back to work.
Individually wrapped snacks like these new Perfectly Simple bars are great for moving day! They are easy to eat and fill you up. You definitely want a snack that will make you feel full and refreshed. Put all your snacks together and display them for your helpers to grab whenever they need one.
You’ll also want to keep lots of bottled water on hand. You’ll definitely get out of breath and need to cool down. If you can, pack a big cooler with ice and load it up with water bottles, sodas and sports drinks.
Paper Plates and Napkins
Take out is a must for moving day. Be sure to pick up some paper plates, plasticware and napkins. Not only will these items come in handy when you want to eat and can’t find where you packed your dishes, it also means you don’t have to wash anything!
Trader Joe’s Bags
I never throw away my bags Trader Joe’s! If you aren’t lucky enough to have experienced Trader Joe’s, they have these great paper bags with handles that are super sturdy. We have used them for moving several times and they sure come in handy. Use them to pack up all the last minute things, fill them with items from your pantry…
Loading and unloading boxes is so much more fun with music! Use your portable speaker to play some upbeat tunes. Be sure to charge it up before moving day!
Moving can be a sweaty, messy job. Keep a few bottles of hand sanitizer on hand to keep your hands clean. Place a bottle by the snacks so that everyone can clean up before grabbing something to eat.
