It occurred to me today that I read an absolutely invaluable piece of advice when preparing for the move. Unfortunately, remembering it when you are almost finished with the packing reduces its value greatly. Here it is:
For each room, designate one box an "Open First" box and put everything that you will need right away into it.
Brilliant. I hope you can use this for your next move.
Another piece of advice that I actually did manage to use was this:
Pack a suitcase for clothes, toiletries, etc. for each member of the family as though you're going on a vacation for three days. That way, you have everything you need handy.
Also brilliant. I'm glad I remembered this one in time.
On the bright side, I haven't packed the coffee maker yet. So at least I still have time to label one box "OPEN THIS FIRST, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!!"
