Develop a System for Labeling Each Box

First, you must figure out how you want to label each box. This might be as simple as writing the destination on the box, but there are more creative ways to label that can help save you time:

·  Use a label maker

·  Use colored stickers and assign different colors for each room in your home

·  Use different patterned duct tape for each room

Label All Sides of Your Boxes

Once you’ve decided how you are going to label your boxes, you can start labeling them. Just make sure that you label all four sides!

Whether you’ve hired Carrollton movers to help or you’re doing everything yourself, it’s easy to stack boxes without considering exactly where each box is labeled. Marking each side ensures that you always know what’s in every box, even if it’s at the bottom of the pile.

Create a Numbering System

It’s easy for things to get misplaced during a move. One way to help keep track of all your boxes is to number them.

Say you packed six boxes for the bedroom. Number each box one to six. When all six have arrived in the bedroom, you can begin unpacking.
