4 Tips For a Successful Move!

If you are getting ready to buy a home at the Lake of the Ozarks you are probably getting excited about living in a new place to call home. One thing you
are probably not so excited about is the dreaded moving day. Moving all of your belongings is quite a job but there are several things you can do to make it a little easier. Our team of real estate agents at the Lake of the Ozarks have four tips to consider for your next big move!


#1 List EVERYTHING

Keep a list of everything you put into any given box. Once it's full and the box has been labeled, mark which label your new list corresponds to (using letters or numbers work well) and file it away for safekeeping. This way, you'll be able to remember where you put your silverware without having to dig through every single box!

#2 Label EVERYTHING

Even the things you don't think you will need to. Don't seal any boxes, bags, or crates without first labeling their contents. Some people even opt to color coordinate their boxes so they can quickly and easily identify their contents, such as designating yellow duct tape for kitchen items and blue duct tape for bathroom items. If all else fails, a thick permanent marker scrawled across your cardboard boxes will work just as well! Effective labeling will allow you to prioritize as you unpack, so you can get all your necessities squared away first.


#3 Pack Proactively

Why not save yourself some time on the big moving day by packing some things ahead of time? You probably don't need your swimsuits and sunscreen readily accessible if you're moving in the winter, just like you don't need three cell phone chargers laying around. Packing as much as you can ahead of time - even if they're small - can make your life much, much easier!

#4 Use the Moving Supplies You Already Have

Believe it or not, you actually have plenty of moving supplies in the back of your closets and under your beds. Suitcases and duffle bags are great places to pack bed sheets or shoes, and your extra bags, baskets, and purses can hold all kinds of miscellaneous items! If you don't fill them with other things, they'll just have to be packed away in a different box. Why not use them to their full potential?
