No man is an island, they say. This is why extra hands when packing your things before moving will not only help in saving you time and money but it can also be a great way to enjoy time with close friends. Organizing a packing party is easy as it is basically the same as that of a regular party. The only difference is that you have to inform your guests that there will be somepacking involved. Below are the 5 easy steps on how to organizes a packing party with friends.
Make a guest list of the people that you want to join in your packing party. You can invite all the people that you know or you can limit it to say just your neighbors, just your office friends and the like. It can be a big party or a small party, its up to you if you want more hands to help you in your packing or things or you just need a few to sort it all out.
Date is very important as the world does not reovlve around you. The people that you have in your guest lists may have other things to attend to. This is why it is best to invite ahead of time as it can make them deadline or confirm your invitation for a packing party.
Inviting your friends to help you in your packing should be easy. Most especially if you have helped them in their packing, there is a great chance that they’d be more than willing to help you out. The packing party will not only serve as a way for you to pack all your things but it can also serve as some sort of a farewell party to you.
Whether you choose finger food or big meals, the most important thing that you have to consider is the amount. If you are going to seek help in packing big stuff, make sure that there is enough foood for everyone as they might be hungry after the lifting,carrying and packing.
Your packing party is incomplete if you do not have the necessary tools and equipment. This is when the need to have lots of scissors, tapes and the like is a must otherwise your some guest would end up doing nothing on your packing party.
