When beginning the process of packing you will want to make sure you pack your non-essential items first. Items such as books, art, knick-knacks, etc. You would hate to pack something away that you may need before you unpack. Slowly start packing your essential items, such as clothes, toiletries, work items, etc, in labelled boxes so that these items may be easily found if needed and unpacked in their new respective locations at your new home.
