Moving tip and tricks - Packing items you will need right away!
How to pack in order to make unpacking easier.
Pack the items you will need FIRST in a clear plastic bin.
This includes things like a box cutter, paper towels, car keys, trash bags, eating utensils, select cookware, power bars/extension cords, phone chargers, toilet paper, tools, etc. The clear bin allows you to see inside; it also separates itself from the myriad of cardboard boxes.
Whether you are moving a few minutes within the same city or across the Fraser Valley or beyond, the last thing you want is to be looking frantically through your new house for something important. Your home will be in a state of chaos already, so life can be a bit simpler if all you need for the first couple days is in the same place.
