Pack These Necessities Separately to Avoid Headaches

The feeling when the last box is taken out of the house is indescribable — blissful elation and anticipation of a big event in life. However, pleasant emotions quickly fade into the background when you realize that someone(most likely it was you) threw the keys to the car or the new house into one of the 30 boxes... We have prepared an article about what things should be packed separately. So you don’t have to experience mixed feelings.

Keys, Wallet, ID

Have you ever heard the expression "if you want to hide something, put it in the most prominent place"? The brain is designed so that we tend to forget the most obvious things. Remember when you were looking for the remote control for your TV or your phone? Put your keys, wallet, and ID card in the same place.


Put the documents you need for the move, insurance, birth certificates, bank statements, or contracts in a separate folder. Any papers related to your business should also be put in a separate folder. The rest of the paperwork can be put in boxes and thrown in the truck.

Basic Tools and Supplies

Bring a set of adjustable wrenches, screwdrivers, duct tape, and scissors. Adding glue, a hammer, some screws, and simple electronics is optional. This kit can save you a lot of time if something suddenly fails at your new place of residence.

Medications and Hygiene Supplies

If you have a prescription for some pills from the doctor, or if you know your body and take medication without a prescription, put enough pills in a carry-on bag that will always be with you.

Health comes first, take care of yourself and your loved ones.
For toiletries like a toothbrush or toothpaste, you don't need to keep them handy, but it's not a good idea to pack them in the back of the truck either. Maintaining hygiene is an enjoyable and rewarding activity.

Devices, Adapters, Chargers

It's no secret that the 21st century is a time of technological breakthroughs and devices. Put your phones, tablets, ultrabooks, and laptops in a separate bag. You can also put wires, flash drives, and adapters.
