4 Packing Basics Make Moving Less of a Drag

From your first thought that you might be selling your Costa Mesa house until the day you accept the offer, most of us avoid dwelling too long on one less-than-delightful consequence of a successful sale: the dreaded move!
There may be rare individuals who see moving as a valuable opportunity to improve their household’s organization. That’s actually true, but hard to bear in mind as you think about dealing with all those items we’ve shoved into the back of closets and drawers. Even if you’ll be remaining in California—or even here in Costa Mesa—a short distance usually isn’t enough to have us relishing the prospect of packing and moving. It’s a lot of backbreaking work, and even if you hire one of Costa Mesa’s thoroughly professional moving operations, you know you’ll still have to deal with a lot of unknowns. Where do things go in the new house? In fact, where the heck are they, now that everything is in cartons? (it’s the not-finding part that can drive anyone nuts).
But the pleasure of successfully selling your house needn’t be dampened by the dread of moving if you follow a few basics that are agreed upon by veterans of the moving experience. They’re easy to remember, too:
1. Pack rooms one at a time, labeling boxes with the name of the room and number of the box: Master Bedroom 1,2,3, etc. Even if your new home has a different collection of rooms, the key to finding everything is by recalling where they always used to be.
2. Use your smartphone to take quick snapshots of what’s inside the numbered boxes.
3. Make a “Me First” box with paper towels, cleaners, trash bags, and paper plates and picnic utensils.
4. Pack a suitcase with the items you’d need for an overnight trip.
