Is your home getting a remodeling or repair work done? Are you worried that you need to move out to a temporary home and you need to do packing and stuff? That is a difficult task. Selecting things that you will only require in your temporary home is tough.
Here are a few tips that will help you to sort the things you want to take with you.
Sort out things room-by-room – Do a quick survey of the things you own. Select one room for a day or two, and sort the things in each room. You can empty out your belongings from drawers, closets and shelves and create groups into the ones you want to move with yourself, the ones you want to give away and the ones you want to store for a bigger home.
Decide what to take with yourself when you move to your temporary house – Only keep the things you require in your temporary house. It would be advisable if you only take kitchen utensils, linens, towels and other small things you think you will need. This is if your temporary home is furnished; if not then it is obvious you will have to get some basic furniture like beds, chairs, kitchen table, coffee table, couch and other pieces of furniture. Pack clothes according to the season in which you will be staying at your temporary home. It is better if you include some clothes of the adjoining seasons.
Confused as to what to put in storage and what to take with you? – Here is an idea. Think that your temporary house is a major real estate which will be used by you every day and that your storage is the vacation home for all your stuff. The things you will not require every day can be kept in your store house. If you need an item that will be helpful for you for the season in which you are moving into the temporary house, then you can take it along with you. Other seasons’ items need to go into the storage.
Box, label and move – Take photos of all the items you want to put in the storage and save them on your computer so that you will have record of the things in your storage. You can also put pictures of the items outside of each storage boxes for reference purpose. While packing your items make sure you separate them properly; one should be for storage and one for moving purpose. This will be helpful for you so that you can tell the movers as to which will go with you and which will go to storage.
