Essentials Every Family Should Have When Moving

Planning a move? The first thing many people think of when moving comes to mind is boxes and tape; but there’s actually an awful lot more to keep in mind. Don’t forget these often overlooked, essential items to help you and your family make a smooth move.

First-Aid Kit

Whether you’re moving or not, a first-aid kit is an essential item for your new home. And, when it comes to moving; bumps, bruises, headaches and rolled ankles are a few injuries that could occur. While you won’t be handling the heavy lifting yourself (if you enlist the professionals), you should still be ready for anything by having bandages, adhesive tape, antibiotic ointment, ibuprofen, cold packs, a blanket and a list of emergency contacts handy.

Tool Kit

This will prove to be an extremely valuable commodity when moving. From assembling or disassembling furniture or doors, to filling in holes in the wall, hanging up a picture, or a tightening screws, a handy tool kit will be needed in order to get these things done.

Cleaning Supplies

When planning your move and gathering supplies, this is one of the first things you should pick up. It is important to leave your old home move-in ready for the next family as well as clean your new home before you settle in. Supplies that will help are disinfecting wipes, sponges, toilet cleaner, rags, buckets and whatever else you might need to make both the place you are at and the place you are moving too as clean as possible.

And, plastic bags can also become a part of your cleaning supplies kit. They can be helpful if you want to get rid of some unwanted garbage or even extra storage for things like clothes or shoes, just to name a few.

Organizational Supplies

Supplies like stickers and markers can help you stay organized and keep track of all your moving boxes.

Snacks & Everyday Essentials

Be sure to keep things you’ll need throughout the day on-hand and not packed away in a box somewhere. Be prepared with snacks and drinks to help you stay hydrated and recharged and keep toilet paper, paper towels, hand-soap, and other toiletries on-hand.
