Finding a new home to live in is very exciting. However, the actual act of moving is not something that anyone looks forward to. The actual moving process can be very stressful if it is not planned and executed well.

- Coordinate packing by room and color code your boxes. A big mistake that many people make is that they fail to pack by room. If you pack by room and you take the time to color coordinate your boxes as you go, then the unpacking process is so much easier. You can move all of the boxes by color into their corresponding room while you are moving and then unpacking is easy because the boxes you need for that room are already in there. You will not have to spend any time searching for a box in the pile.
- Keep an inventory. Another great thing to do is keep an inventory of items as you pack them and mark where you have them packed. This is helpful because if you need to find something fast, you can refer to your inventory sheet and find it in no time at all. It is also a great idea to label your boxes in this process.
- Pack a first night bag. Chances are that you will not want to unpack your home on the same day that you move. You will still need some basic items on the first night so make it easier on everyone and pack a first night bag with all items you need. That way you can get some much needed rest before tackling all of those boxes.
