1)      Plan ahead. You will need to clean all the kitchen items and record them in an inventory list. Also, this is the perfect time to decide if you want to keep some old items or just throw them away. You can also organize a garage sale and try to earn a buck.  Assessing the number of items is very important because it will make you aware on how many packing supplies you will need.

2)      Pack an essential box first. Here is where you should place things you will need for the first days in your new home. You must place some knives, forks, spoon, glasses, toaster and plates. Of course, not all of them, just a limited number to make the new kitchen fully functional as soon as possible.

3)      Start collecting packing supplies.  You will need boxes of different shapes and sizes.  Lightweight items can be places in large boxes. Here you can also place objects that are more difficult to pack: dish racks, small appliances (if they do not have their original boxes), plastic plates and kitchenware, baking tins.  Heavier items can be placed in medium boxes. Here you should keep:  pantry items, pots, pans, silverware.  Fragile items require heavy duty boxes, with double-walls. You will also need news-wrap, bubble wrap, foam peanuts, cell kits, sealing tape, markers and labels.
