How to Prepare Your Kitchen for Moving Day

The thought of packing up and moving an entire household of belongings is enough to stress out most people. Of all the areas in a home, the kitchen is perhaps the one room which people dread the most. Tackling all the breakable dishes, countertop appliances, utensils, glasses and other knick-knacks can be overwhelming. But it is not so difficult as long as you approach it in the right way.

How to Organize Your Kitchen to Make Packing a Snap

Getting everything in your kitchen ready for moving takes much longer than you expected — so, start as early as you can. The last thing you want to do is run around at the last minute trying to shove everything randomly into boxes. That is how your belongings get lost or broken. Instead, get your kitchen ready a few weeks before the big moving day. The following tips can help you get organized.

Stop cooking. Start by using up all of your food and try not to take any big trips to the supermarket. Since you will pack up your pots, pans, plates, and utensils, try to purchase groceries which don't require stovetop cooking. Sandwiches and microwavable meals are ideal. If you find a lot of unopened packaged food which is still good, consider donating it to a local charity.

Prepare your kitchen items. There are many ways you can organize your kitchen for moving, but the easiest way is to combine and then pack similar items in the same box. That means sorting all of your bowls with other bowls and your cups with other cups. Not only will this make it easier to pack your items, but it will also help you find what you need when you get to your new home without having to search too much.

Many homeowners like to separate kitchen items into the following categories:

  • The "good dishes." This includes fine china and crystal glassware like wine glasses. You will want to spend extra time when you pack these items.
  • The "everyday dishes." These are the more durable plates and platters you use all the time.
  • Bowls. This group includes both serving and mixing bowls which are sturdy enough to stack.
  • Cups and mugs. Anything you drink out of besides wine glasses can be in this category.
  • Utensils. You should try to further sort this group into individual types of utensils such as spoons with spoons and knives with knives.
  • Small appliances. Everything from your coffee maker to your blender needs special attention to ensure nothing gets broken during the move.
  • Knick-knacks. Protect all of your odd-shaped knick-knacks like egg cups and salt shakers by keeping them all together.
