1.Get Plenty of Boxes.
One thing that we had to really get a lot of was boxes. I know it sounds simple, but make sure to get sturdy boxes that will hold up. And boxes with lids are always best. Believe me, we tried boxes without lids and they always pushed in from the sides. Definitely go with strong, sturdy boxes with lids.
2.Have a Marker Handy.
With 8 in our family, we had a lot of stuff. And we always had problems trying to keep the childrens items separated. So we found that bringing a marker along and writing each child's name on the box worked out the best! Or if you have those sticky labels? Those work too but not as good because some of them came off. A bright, thick marker works the greatest.
3.Schedule and Plan Ahead.
We always packed our items in the order we would need them. The toys and games, books, etc were always packed first. They were the things we wouldn't need right away when we first got in. The kitchen items, bedding, bathroom things, etc. Those were the items that were packed last so they were at the back of the trailer to get out first. Make sure you know what you are going to need right away and put those at the back of the trailer or near the door. One time we packed our toaster oven and wouldn't ya know? That was the thing we needed the night we got in to use:) So it pays to plan ahead and schedule what you need.
