How A Simple Box Will Make Moving Day Better

Moving is difficult. We only do it so often and rarely frequent enough to remember all of the little details. The worst part of moving is not being able to find the things you need within the first 24 hours of moving in. Ironically, a lot of those items were just thrown into a box haphazardly because  you just wanted to be done packing.

Unless you have an army of people or movers that are helping you unpack, here are some things you should store away in a separate box.

  • Paper towels – There will be food in the middle of this process, or at least snacking. Most of the food is messy and usually pizza. Also something will break and drip, or something just won’t be clean enough for you. Paper towels will be your friend.
  • Garbage bags – You’ll need those bags for all of the paper towles, plus you’ll throw away more than you think from your previous residence.
  • All purpose cleaner – See above
  • Paper plates, plastic utensils, and cups – You will be eating before the regular stuff comes out. I’m all about saving the planet but throwing this moving day mess away is better than dealing with dishes right after you move in.
  • A hammer – things just need help moving.
  • Screwdrivers, pliers, and box cutters – You have to adjust, set up and open things.
  • Water – Soda and beer is great but water will keep you going.
  • Snacks – Pizza will only go so far and it’s greasy.
  • Toiletries – You don’t want to be scrambling through boxes when you or the kid really needs to go.
  • Enough towels for everyone to shower that night. Chances are everyone got a little sweaty.
  • Bed Linens (or Sleeping Bags) – Your bed will be the best spot after this long day, you want to be able to make it when it’s time.
  • Charger cords – Enough said.

Every move is different but this will get you through the first night. Happy moving!
