25 Packing Tips for Cross Country Moving

by | Jan 6, 2023 | Features

Packing is a very time-consuming part of moving. But there are things that can be done to make it easier. First, you need to figure out what you need for the move. But it’s important to see what supplies you may already have laying around, like scissors, tape, and some boxes. You should also make sure that you start well in advance and not wait until the last minute. It is important, however, to make sure you don’t pack things you still need too far ahead – like kitchen supplies.

Key Takeaways:

  • One of the first things you should do for a big move is see which supplies you already have laying around, like boxes or scissors.
  • When planning a large move, it is important to not wait until the last minute to pack.
  • When packing in advance, make sure you don’t pack things early that you still might need, like things for the kitchen.

“It might sound obvious, but you won’t believe how much more streamlined your packing process will be if you do these two things: figure out what you need (and in what quantities) and come up with a timeline.”
