After moving many times, I found that it helps to work a room at a time, number the boxes and make a list.

For example, in the kitchen.  I would start packing a box and mark it on the outside KITCHEN #1.  On a pad I would write KITCHEN #1 and list the items in the box (casserole dishes, silverware, mixing bowls, etc). 

I do this for each room in the house.  Then, after the move, if I am frantically searching for one thing (which box is the small frying pan in???), I can look at my list - see that it is in KITCHEN BOX #3 and go straight to that box.

Hope this helps.  It has worked for me.

If you don't need something, or haven't used it in years, then get rid of it or give it away.  No point in taking things to the new place that you will have to store somewhere.  And it will lighten your load!

slm

the sisters have given very good tips Alhumdulillah.  I just wanted to add that you must keep the elec. kettle, mugs, teaspons, sugar, teabags / coffee, cookies etc in one box so you know where to reach everything at once when you want to take a break when you are unpacking the 1st day / night, Insha Allah.

JazakAllahu kair for all your tips. so far we only had a chance to set everything in the new place and then go out of town to parents, so now I need tips on how to unpack. I will probably go back next wk and start unpacking.
