Two birds, one stone: You’re packing your clothes and kitchenware at the same time
Pack an overnight bag containing all the essentials
Chances are, you’ll be too tired to unpack your things. You’ll want your essentials within easy access, including a change of clothes if you’re going back to work the next day as well as all your toiletries. It’s also a great way to transport a laptop.
Remember to defrost your refrigerator at least a day before moving and wipe up any liquid
Else you’re going to have a stinky, wet mess when you get to your new home
If you’re renting, take photos of your cleaned-out old home and your new home before moving in.
This is essential if you ever hope to get your deposit back. It will save you major headaches with difficult landlords who charge you cleaning and repair fees unnecessarily when moving out.
