Moving food may actually be one of the toughest parts of moving (along with knowing how much to tip movers). It ranks right up there with sorting through your important papers, deciding which to keep.
If you have packed everything properly, you shouldn’t have too many issues with leaks and spills. However, be sure to label your food boxes in big letters. This makes it simple to sort them out so you can eat once you arrive in your new home. It also lets the movers know that the boxes contain food items.
Not going too far? If you are only moving across town, you can get away with taking a cooler along. Put that jar of opened caviar and a few condiments in it. We don’t recommend this for longer trips, of course. Make sure you add ice to the cooler!
Finally, be sure to have some packaged food and drinks on hand for moving day. You’ll get hungry at some point and it’s easy to grab a bag of peanuts or a granola bar to munch on. There’s no need to leave any of your regular food out. Just have a tote or small box with snacks to keep you going.
Once you’ve moved, it is time to unpack everything, including your food. If you’ve prepared well, you only moved the best food and are ready to start your new life with a clean pantry.
