So assuming that you have been putting things into boxes over the last week, about a week out you will probably have most of your things in boxes. So, as you can see, a lot of my things are in boxes, and I've labeled the boxes, like this one, you can see the top of it, I've labeled it with "FRAGILE", like we talked about, and there are appliances, plastic containers, and some dry goods in this box. And so this box is, and a lot of these boxes in this area are going to my kitchen and they're from my kitchen and so I've kept all of my kitchen boxes pretty close to my kitchen, my kitchen is right over there. And I've also kept them in the same area as each other. And then back here I have things from my bookshelves, and back here I have things from my office. And then the same thing is over on the other side of the room, I've collected all the boxes, or boxes with similar things in them, in a certain area. So that's an idea that you want to keep in mind as you're packing your boxes, to, when you're a week out from your move, two weeks out from your move, as you pack a box then put it in a space that is with other boxes from that room so that you can get to those boxes easily, you can find them if you do need something. It also makes moving in a little bit easier because you'll probably be packing those boxes into the truck in about the same place and they can just go straight to the room where they're going.
