Hi. I wonder what it means. I looked it up but all the definitions doesn't match to the context. Girls comes to his room (she back home from college) and sees that everything is packed up. She calls sher mum and asks what happend to her room. The mother answers, 'We just wanted to get a jump-start on all the packing. It's gonna be fine.' Any ideas what "jump-start" could mean?
The idiom is 'get a jump start on': to start something ahead of time in order to save time.
