Pack and Move

A little planning ahead will make for a smooth transition into your new home. As you’re packing up the old house, set aside an “Open First” box for all those miscellaneous items you are bound to be searching for otherwise. If you’re able to, have this box travel with you in the car rather than the moving van so it’s always on-hand.

Hopefully you won’t need that bottle of aspirin, but at least you’ll know where to find it!
