    Packing the boxes:

    Take some more newspapers and place them on the top to protect the things from getting damaged. Once you get finished putting all the things in the box, apply a strong painter’s tap firmly across the box doors and along the box’s edges. This must be done attentively so that nothing peeps out of the box. Also keep on marking out the things in the list alongside that have already been packed.

    Marking the boxes with the name of categories:

    Now take permanent markers and write the item category with a large font on all the four sides of the boxes. It is even more convenient to get makers of varied colors and write the category name of similar items with same color. For example if you have chosen a blue color for bathroom supplies then mark it with the same color for the rest of the boxes containing such supplies. This will help you quickly identify the items inside the box without wasting much time.

    Pack the rest of the boxes in similar fashion and get yourself done with it. Whew! So that’s not too difficult, isn’t it?
