I finally decided to relocate, which is exciting. there’s only one problem (if you don’t count the fact my building doesnt have an elevator and i live on the fourth floor). this problem is packing… well, packing and maintaining a healthy level of sanity. I tend to fall into a disorganized mess (which is generally okay and I work with it). But I think the worst part is when someone [I] is [am] unpacking and he/she [I] I can’t find the wine opener (or toilet paper or socks or something obscure like dinosaur figurines (yes, dinosaur figurines and, yes, double parentheses)) because I didn’t accurately label the boxes.
I got smart this time… I made labels to print and stay organized. And, because I’m hoping I’m not the only person in the world who has this issue with organization (if I am the only person, I envy your memory!), I made these labels to share with you. There is an index sheet which includes a list of box numbers and column where you can place a summary of the items in the box and where in your new home the box should go! Also, I added a column of the stars (on the left of the index sheet) to help you remember which boxes are fragile or not! You can personalize this however you wish but I wanted to keep it simple for my version.
Here’s how I used them:
- 1, full size sheet for Indexing
- 2, grey half sheets [on one sheet of paper]
- 4, quarter sheets of the colors seen above!
Good luck with the move!
I hope these help! Feel free to comment or email me with questions or let me know if they worked for you!
