Make the Packing and Moving Process Easier

You found your dream home, and now you’re ready to pack up and move. This process is often thought of as dreadful and stressful. But, it doesn’t have to be. Here are a few tips to make the process of packing up your home a little easier.



Clever Endeavors for Packing up the Kitchen

Place packing paper or paper towels between plates before boxing them to cushion them during the move.

Pack a first day basket with disposable plates, cups and cutlery so you can eat without digging out your dishes.

Fill your pots with spices and other small kitchen items.

Place stemware and glasses inside of clean socks for free padding.


Best Bets for Bedroom Items

Slide clothing on hangers directly into garbage bags, and then secure them with the ties. Unpacking will be much less hassle.

Use comforter bags to pack old clothes, seasonal clothes or baby clothes. That way they’re all ready to store in the new house.

Stuff your shoes with small items to maximize space.

Use the dividers in wine boxes to keep shoes organized while moving.

Put your jewelry in egg cartons to eliminate tangles.


Home Office Help

Pack books or heavy files in suitcases with wheels for easy mobility.

Put all of your important documents in plastic bags to protect them. Then, separate them in file folders or boxes so you know where they are at all times.

Number the boxes and write down what is in each box next to its corresponding number. That way you can keep your office boxes organized without advertising what’s inside them. This is best for boxes with high priced items or especially sensitive contents.
