Moving can be a real pain, which is why anything you can do to make it a little bit easier should be taken advantage of. Over the course of the next two blogs, we will be looking at ten different moving hacks to help make your move as easy as possible.
Use garbage bags for your clothes on hangers
If you have a closet full of clothes that are hung up, it can seem like a daunting task to have to pack them all up. Instead of taking each garment off the hanger, do this: group clothes into sections that will fit into large garbage bags, and pull the bag up from the bottom. Now you can carry your clothes, still on hangers, quickly and easily. Unpacking is a breeze!
Wrap dishware with your clothes
Utilizing t-shirts and other clothing items to wrap your dishware not only protects your fragile items, it saves you space, and money.
Pack a moving day bag
When you arrive at your new home, you will want to have certain things easily accessible. Make sure you pack a separate bag with your bathroom essentials, a few pairs of clothes, medications, and any other items you foresee yourself needing on moving day.
Label your boxes
Labeling your boxes will make unpacking much more pleasant. Make sure you label them with the following information: which room they belong in, what the contents are, and whether or not they are fragile.
Get rid of junk
A few weeks before you begin packing, take inventory of your belongings and get rid of anything you don’t need. This way, you are only moving things that actually need to go to the new house!
As you can see, there are many small things you can do throughout your packing and moving to make the process go smoothly.
