Labeling Your Boxes

32

In addition to labeling what’s in your boxes, add what room they’ll be going into, as well.

When you arrive at your new home, unpack BY ROOM. The unpacking process will feel more manageable. Also, remember to label the SIDES of the boxes, not the tops. This way, you’ll be able to identify them even if they’re stacked.
