The moving process can be stressful and overwhelming, especially when you have to pack and organize your belongings to transport them to a new home. However, applying Marie Kondo’s KonMari method can help make moving a more organized and successful experience. Here we present some tips on how to apply the KonMari method for a successful move.
Start by categories
Instead of packing by room, Marie Kondo recommend packing by category. Start with clothing, then books, papers, miscellaneous items, and finally sentimental items. This approach allows you to evaluate and decide what you want to keep from each category before packing.
Delete what you don’t need
Before packing, it is important get rid of what you don’t need. Use the KonMari process to evaluate each item to determine if it brings you happiness or is necessary in your new home. If not, thank him for his service and say goodbye to him.
Use uniform boxes
For easy organization and transportation, use standard medium to large size boxes to pack your belongings. Also, be sure to label each box clearly with the contents and the corresponding room.
Create an inventory
Keep track of your belongings is an effective way to ensure that everything arrives at your new home. Create a detailed inventory of each box and its contents, and keep it handy to keep track of what you’ve packed.
Use space effectively
Make the most of space in boxes and furniture when packing your belongings. Use empty spaces, like the inside of pots or shoe boxes, to store smaller items. Besides, use the drawers of the furniture to store heavier objects, such as books and dishes.
keep your balance
As you pack your belongings, it is important maintain balance in the distribution of the weight of the boxes. Pack heavy items in smaller boxes to prevent them from breaking or being difficult to transport. It is also important not to overload the boxes and to make sure they are easy to lift and carry.
