Travel tip #4 – take it slow
Something you can expect when you’re packing or moving is that you’re going to injure yourself in some spectacular and stupid fashion. There will be a suitcase in your way where there is normally only pathway to the bathroom at three o’clock in the morning.
Start packing well in advance of your move date. At least three weeks. Take it sloooooow. See the move as an opportunity to sell unused items, mend broken items, give away other useful items, and sort through and purge your paperwork.
Some people want to minimize the time they’ll spend in disarray and rush the packing process. Or they wait until the last moment to do the sorting and packing and then just shove everything into boxes. Don’t. You’ll get hurt.
