- Put the items that you will need access to, near the front of the unit, making them easy to grab quickly when you need them.
- Organize boxes by room or use and label every box so you know what the box is for/contains.
- Itemize what is in each box and keep a copy of that taped to the outside so that you will know what the box contains quickly without having to riffle through the box.
- Pack lighter boxes on top of heavier boxes to reduce the chance that someone will be harmed or things will be damaged if they topple over.
