Moving can seem like quite a hassle, especially when you’re packing up an entire house, arranging a new school for your children or shipping belongings overseas. Whatever the case may be, whether you are moving a few belongings or an entire household, the unique tips below will be a major help.
1. Wrap Fragile Items in Clothing
Save a bundle on bubble wrap by wrapping up your fragile belongings in your clothes! You’ll be simultaneously packing your kitchenware and your clothing.
When arriving at your new home, unpack each box by room. The unpacking process will be much more manageable. Additionally, rather than labeling the tops of boxes, make sure to label the SIDES instead. It’s much easier to identify them when they are stacked.
3. Cover the Openings of Your Toiletries with Saran Wrap
To avoid having your toiletries break and spill all over your other belongings, place saran wrap over the opening and then put the cover back on.
4. Cover Drawers with Press’n Seal
Avoid having to unpack and refold the contents of your drawers by simply placing Press’n Seal over them. It also makes moving the dresser much quicker.
5. Keep Small Parts in a Sandwich Bag
In case you have to take apart appliances or perhaps a mounted flat-screen TV, keep a sandwich bag handy. Tape the baggies to the back of the item they match with. This is also a smart concept for cords!
