5 Things You Should Pack Separately to Keep with You When Moving

Have you considered the items you should pack separately to keep with you during the moving process? Especially if you are planning for a long-distance move, you'll save yourself hassles and headaches by keeping some essentials on-hand. Here are 5 things to pack separately in an easy-to-access box:

1. Medications

The last thing you want is to have a raging headache with no ibuprofen in sight! Pack any prescription medications and pain-relievers in a bag to have nearby. This helps you avoid having to rummage through dozens of boxes to find what you need.

2. Essential documents

Keeping personal, legal, and financial documents safe in an easy-to-access bag or box can help you avoid stressful situations. Include social security cards, birth certificates, passports, titles, and anything else you may need to find quickly.

3. Electronic devices

Everyone knows how essential electronic devices are to daily life these days. Keep yours safe and handy in a moving bag you keep with you. Must-have items include tablets, laptops, and smartphones. Don’t forget the chargers!

4. Toiletries

Include basic toiletries in your moving essentials bag or box, so you don't have to go a day without brushing your teeth. You can purchase travel-size toiletry items to save space and provide easy access to toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, deodorant, contact solution, and toilet paper.

5. A couple of sets of clothing

In the hustle and bustle of packing up your closet, don’t forget to grab a few changes of clothing for you and your family members. It may take some time for you to unpack everything at your new location. Having some clean clothes available will ensure you don’t have to wear the same stinky t-shirt three days in a row.
