Moving is already stressful without accidentally packing things you need when you first move in. When you accidentally pack essential things that you need, it can be a nightmare finding the right box. Here are four things not to pack up that will make your move easier on you.
Perishable Foods and Household Plants
You’ll want your food for when you first move into your new home. Although it can be safely stored away in boxes, it’s better to not pack them up so you’ll have food. Plants can be difficult for movers to deal with, so store them in your car and take them out when you get to your house.
Do not pack up personal and important paperwork. If it’s lost in the move or you need it right away, it will be hard to find the box that has these documents. Store them in a folder that you can keep on you.
Cleaning Supplies and Flammable Materials
Cleaning supplies should be on hand when you move into your new home. You might need to clean counters or sinks, so you’ll need your supplies. Also, moving a box full of lighters, matches, lighting fluid, etc. is not a good idea. Anything that seems dangerous or hazardous should not be boxed up and put in the moving truck.
Your Medicine Cabinet
Do not pack up your medicines. You might need them and it would not be good to be without them.
