Moving is chaotic and a bit messy. As much as you try to organize everything, chances are the last few boxes packed will be full of miscellaneous items, kind of similar to that kitchen junk drawer. In order to keep stress at bay when unloading in your new home, make sure to keep your emergency box with you so that you can unpack it first.


Your emergency box should be filled with the following items:

Tool Box




Light Bulbs

Hand Sanitizer / Soap

Toilet Paper

Water Bottles


Phone Chargers



Keeping these essential items all in the same space will certainly help your unpacking go smoothly. There are many other items which can be added to this box as well; this box should accommodate your family! (Maybe even keep some cash in there for pizza?)


What other items would you add to your most important moving box to help the day go a little easier?
