The Money Management Newsletter: Home Ownership
Moving Day - The very last box you should pack

Even the best move can cause problems, and more often than not, those problems arise on the first day in the mover’s new home.

Anyone who’s experienced a move knows the problems that can be encountered... Children can’t or won’t go to sleep without a favorite toy, someone needs a particular medication, or you can’t find basic toiletries. After all, everything you own is packed up in boxes, and finding the exact location of small items can be a real challenge, particularly after a long, strenuous moving day.

How do you avoid these easily avoidable problems? Try packing your key items last, in boxes marked First Night.

Anything that is needed to make your new home function should go in these special boxes, including everything mentioned above plus sheets and blankets for the beds, pillows, a few dishes and eating utensils, lightbulbs, and a change of clothing.

Other things to possibly include are baby diapers and formula (including bottles, extra clothes, etc.); pet food for your dog or cat; a telephone book; and some non-perishable food for breakfast on your first morning in the new house.

Make sure your First Night box is plainly marked, so that it won’t get lost in the moving shuffle. It should be the last box to go on the moving truck, and the first one off.
