My first tip actually comes long before the move even starts. It involves purging and organizing everything you can leading up to your move. The last thing you want to do is move stuff only to sell or donate it once you get moved. It’s also SO much easier to pack an organized space over a disaster. Seriously… have you ever tried to pack a junk drawer? Or had to unpack the junk drawer? Make it easier on yourself by organizing. Most moves I don’t start packing until two weeks before the move, but at that point I’ve already donated and organized every space.
