The best way to begin the packing process is to start in the rooms you use least, such as guest rooms, basements, attics, garages, etc., and end it with the the rooms you use or are in the most often– bedrooms, kitchens, living rooms and children’s rooms.
As you finish the least used rooms you can start packing the other rooms and moving the boxes into the rooms that are finished being packed. This will help keep the clutter down and will also help on move day since everything will basically be in one area.
It also helps to start off with the larger items. Once those are packed away the job won’t seem as overwhelming. It might be a good idea to make an inventory list as you pack or before.
