A packing party can be a great way to have a last hurrah with close friends and family and get the tedious job of packing done at the same time! Make invitations (something that looks like a box?), have some good food and a whole lot of boxes and bubble wrap. You could have games to see who can blow through their "to do" lists the fastest or have a dance competition to see who has the best moves while still packing. Fun, right?

Moving Tip: To help when moving in to the new place, use color coded tapes to let you know what room or even what might be in the box. It ends up going a lot faster than writing it down and having to read it later. (Thanks, Mom!)
