So I'm about to start packing up our house and moving.
I have 4 kids under 7yrs so I have toys!!
As I'm packing I will be getting rid of some toys and clothes that are too small.
And when I pack I want to organising the toys eg lego with lego, doll furniture together etc
So I'm after other people's tips on packing up and moving.
Any sought of ideas I would really appreciate

Tips on Packing Up house and moving

I find packing the things least used to start with helps. Depending how close you are to move day even go further, just keep out enough plates, cutlery, towels, clothes etc for each person.
For toys and soft things (eg linen) I have used those striped bags from the cheap shop. They hold a fair bit and are handy, just don't overpack or weigh it down with heavy items as they will split
I'll try to think of more

Def do a cull first. Hire a skip bin for the last few days of your cull. Then pack things like nick-nacks, summer clothes, kitchen/laundry/linen stuff you can do without, lastly pack essentials and pantry. Load things in that order too, so the essentials are easy to access. Label boxes really really well!

I know this sounds dumb but every time I have moved I have left everything in my drawers and just taped them up! Saved me a whole heap of time not having to pack and un pack them

start with getting rid of everything not used/wanted/broken/ get the amount of stuff down to the minimum. First pack what is not used often, or in the next few weeks, pack away summer clothes?? kitchen things that arent used often. Get some packing cases from the removalists, and even some smaller cases if they have them. Try to pack a mix of heavy and light things, so the weight will be sort of even. I also recommend you label the boxes really clear, dont just write 'kitchen' or 'bedroom' but write a list of what is in the box. It is not easy packing a house, and esp with young ones, try not to stress, and just get something done each day, that will help you cope. good luck, Marie
