The more items you have, the more you have to pack and move. It’s not easy to know what to throw away and when to throw it away; thus, before your moving date arrives, make sure that you have sorted through everything and throw away or recycle everything that you no longer need or want.

Make sure that you have enough boxes, packing tape, and protective materials so that you can pack with ease.
Don’t buy boxes
Check whether you can rent boxes instead of purchasing them. This will save costs as you can return then once you have moved and unpacked. You have a choice of renting new or used boxes.
Don’t just throw things in boxes. Pack carefully and put related objects together in a box.
Label all your boxes
There is nothing worse than arriving at your new destination to find all your boxes in a jumble and you don’t know what is inside each box and where it goes. Therefore, make sure you label all of your boxes as you seal them.
Keep a track of your moving expenses
