Moving prep doesn’t start with packing up your things; it starts way before! The first step is to make sure you have enough packing supplies to get you through. There’s nothing worse than having to scramble around on the day before or morning of your move, trying to find extra boxes. That brings Packing Tips For Moving House
First step is to
Label all of your boxes and containers with painters tape
I like this because My boxes are being reused.what I’m putting in each box and painters tape is nice because it’s bright blue,so it’s really easy to find and it doesn’t leave any residue behind so you can use it on decorative containers and you don’t have to worry about cleaning off any that sticky stuff and I like to label my boxes with either the contents or the room it’s going to so that the people that are helping me move know where to take it once we get there.
Use your clothes and towels for Padding
Any linens you have as packing materials so here I’m just putting some art with glass in it with some clothing so that it’s nice and protected and I’m any money on that packing padding stuff or bubble wrap.
Fold boxes closed instead of taping them
So I do this by just going around in a circle and then I pop out the last corner and this make sit super easy to pull them back open when you need to get back into them and you’re not wasting so much money or plastic on tape
Keep your jewelry in a hard container
Like a mason jar or some kind of Tupperware so it can’t get crushed or broken in travel but if you are worried about it tangling-do use separate containers
Packing into Furniture
So any thing with drawers or cabinets fill those up with items this helps you decrease the volume overall so if you have a truck with limited space definitely pack into your furniture so that you’re not using as many boxes but this will of course make your furniture heavier so you might have to take the drawers out when you re-actually moving things in and out of the buildings
I really like this tip because I think clothing takes up a lot of space and hangers are just a very awkward item to pack so if you take a trash bag and poke a hole in the top you can put a bunch of your hanging clothes in it and then tie up the bottom to protect them and it saves you a ton of time packing I would recommend putting more items in each bag but this was just a demonstration for you guys and then
My last tip I think is the most important and that is to pack a bag for a few days that has all of your hygiene essentials and a couple out fit sun packing may take longer than you expect so it’s always nice to have everything that you need right there at your fingertips
