Moving tip #1 Follow it KonMari step-by-step plan

To pack for the move To get it off to a good start, a 'clean' house is important. By this we do not only mean 'clean', but also tidy. This means that you go through all the rooms in advance and clear out and sort all cupboards, drawers and possible containers. Follow the KonMari step-by-step plan where you only surround yourself with the things that are really dear to you. Throw away what can go and re-invent what can remain. This way you don't take old stuff with you and you create an overview for yourself in advance.

Moving tip #2 Organize the moving boxes per room

To keep things organized, it works well to pack the moving boxes per room. This way you could unfold the number of moving boxes you think you need and have it ready. Organize a box for each category, such as 'clothing', a box with 'bedding', a box with 'shoes' and so on.

Moving tip #4 Pack glass and service 

Glasses and breakable service are best packed extra. This can be done in paper, but also, for example, in cardboard or another suitable material. Make sure that the protective material remains in place and that the entire item is well packed. Service is fine in a box, but pay attention to how you stack it. Rather a box more, with less service in it, than an overfull box in which everything breaks due to the amount.
