- Clear things out. If you don't need it, get rid of it.
- Always prepare a "load-last" carton that contains items you want access to right away. Suggested items to include are a coffeepot, filter and coffee grounds; paper plates, cups, and napkins; paper towels, telephone, flashlight, basic tools and anything else you may not want to hunt for on moving day. Place difficult-to-locate items such as hardware and furniture to the remote control in a plastic sandwich bag. Add a label and put it in your "load-last" carton.
- Get the children involved. Have them decorate a sign with their name on it and hang it outside the bedroom at their new house. Not only does it help get them involved in the moving process, it will also help movers identify where the boxes should be placed.
