    Eviction Is Always Upsetting



    lol

    Start with all non essential bulk stuff like put loads of clothing / bedding / towels etc. in boxes and suit cases,
    Box all decoration stuff like vase / pictures / books etc,
    Have a big bag / box / skip for junk to throw out and a box for the charity shop.
    Pack all non-essential kitchen stuff and only leave a few plates / cups etc for a few days use.
    Pack almost all kids toys stuff in boxes.

    Great tip, when boxing everything make sure you write on the outside of the box what is actually in it and if possible what new room it has to go in.

    Oh, and make sure you take an essentials box to a parents house or someone who you trust which has Passports, bank cards, birth certificates, bank statements etc in it. As you dont want that to get lost!

    You'll need loads of parcel tape, and plenty boxes, newspapers or bubble wrap...

    I just moved two weeks ago, we're still living out of boxes as we work full time not had a min to sort everything out yet... nightmare!

    Start in the attic..spare room...cupboards...anything you don't use daily

    I marked all mine with a room (kitchen) then what was in it (pots & pans) (glass) anything that had breakables in it i marked with a large red cross too so i made sure this was kept on top of everything else to stop it getting crushed
