Getting Organized and Staying Organized During a Move

Your moving day is immediately ahead. This may be somewhat overwhelming to you. You likely have a lot of loose ends to tie up in this effort. Maybe you need help? 1st Choice Mover’s offers moving services to St Paul and local residents throughout the Twin Cities. We have helped so many families and businesses move to new locations that we would like to share some of the tips we have come across that will aid in the process.


As you place all of your possessions into boxes, be sure to assess whether all items are required to make the move with you. Many local charitable organizations exist that will gladly take your gently used items to help those less fortunate. This policy will aid in your effort to minimize the sheer volume of possessions to move, making your move easier as well as preventing clutter in your new home. The less stuff you have to move, the better off the move will be! Also, you will have altogether less in the way of items to sort through once you’re at the new destination.


It is time to step back into the 20th century. Make a list or lists. Go with ‘to do’ lists, inventory lists, lists of any sort that you can think of that will make the overall process of staying organized easier. Line up some folders or pouches to store all of your receipts and business cards acquired during the process. If you have any upcoming moving-related appointments, write them down in your notebook so you can keep track of them. This is also a great way to keep track of items you will need for your new home.


Start packing as early as possible. Label every single box with what it contains and where it should go in the new home. This will aid in the overall effort of your moving services company to keep track of your boxes and that they are placed where they belong. Pack essential items last, allowing them to be the first thing accessed from your car or the moving truck. This included sundry items such as toiletries, changes of clothing and other related items.
