According to OrganizedHome.com, the concept of the “Survival Box” is one dear to the hearts of all moving advisers and organizational experts. You know what that is, right? It’s a box containing the essentials of life: coffeemaker and children’s nighttime loveys, bed sheets and blankets and pillows, an alarm clock, TV remotes, pet supplies. Your move will go better, smoother, and dare we say, happier, with a Survival Box.
Paint it red, plaster it with Little Mermaid stickers, do something to it so it stands out like a sore thumb, and put it in the truck last, so it’s first out in the new house.
Your Survival Box should contain all those items you’ll need for the first day and night in your new home.
With small children, think about including dishes, cereal and the paraphernalia of a family breakfast.
As a mid-lifer, I’ve honed essentials of life down to a very individual list: traveling coffeemaker and supplies, portable computer, chargers, cell phone, medicines.
Your Survival Box will reflect your own family’s needs.
Don’t stop there! Think bigger than a single box. Those same small children can be entertained quite handily if you pack the boxes containing television, DVD player and disks at the back end of the truck! Will you need cleaning tools and a vacuum? A tool box to assemble furniture and hang art? Think about your immediate needs, and hold those essentials back until the bitter end.
