Create a Move Day Essentials Box
A Move Day Essentials Box helps you put all of the critical things you may need in one handy place, so that you’re not frantically searching through all of the boxes to find the one that has the toilet paper.
We discovered this trick after moving into a new house to discover, as the sun began to set, that the former owners had unscrewed and removed every single light bulb in the entire house.
|Toilet paper||Cleaning spray|
|Pain medication||Dish soap|
|Light bulbs||Hand / body soap|
|Paper towels||Toothbrush & toothpaste|
|Hand sanitizer||Phone charger|
|Basic tool kit||Cash (for tipping, coffee, etc.)|
|Bottled water||Batteries (a few of each type)|
|Snacks||Pet food (if you have a pet)|
|Box cutters / utility knife||Lighter or matches|
QUICK TIP: Put the Moving Essentials box in the front seat of your car or the truck cab so that you know EXACTLY where it is at all times.
