In all the planning and effort of packing, you may not realize that the most important supplies you’ll need is also one of the smallest: a marker. A Sharpie that fits in your pocket can be just as important as all the boxes, bubble wrap, and masking tape in the world. Why is that? Because boxes usually aren’t transparent and people don’t have X-ray vision. Labeling your boxes can save you a lot of time, effort, and even tears. Marking your box will mean that you don’t have to tear it open to find out what’s inside.
By labeling your boxes with names like “Kitchen,” “Bathroom,” or “Living Room,” will let you know where the things inside your box belong in your new house. Here are a few other things to write on your box that will make a big difference in your packing, storing, and eventual unpacking:
• Do Not Stack
• Details of Contents (i.e., “Cups,” “Plates,” “Glassware”)
• Number of Boxes (i.e., “Cups 1 of 3,” “Cat Sweaters 1 of 10″)
We at STORBOX Self Storage in Pasadena recommend not just listing one word descriptions on your boxes. The more detail you can include on your box will help you keep track of what’s inside, helping you locate what you need when you need it. Packing can be a stressful time and labeling your boxes can help a great deal. So can choosing a great storage facility to store your boxes.
