When packing, you may move from room to room, take a day off or get sidetracked. By storing packing tools together in one basket, you will be more efficient with your time, as well as save yourself from searching for lost packing tools. Add all necessary packing items to the basket, such as labels, tape, markers and scissors. When you move from room to room, just grab the basket and go. 

Zip-top bags are also great for packing and organizing because they're cheap and efficient. Freezer bags are best because they're thick and will last through your move. Get your kids involved and have them separate all of their small toys into the bags and pack them into a larger box. When it's time to unpack, everything is already organized into categories. The bags are also great for really small items like toiletries, kitchen drawer items and office supplies.
