Properly packing your belongings helps ease the stress of moving. To do that, you need to have the right supplies. Unfortunately, many skimp on packing and moving supplies because they don’t want to spend any more on the move, not anticipating the headache this will cause.
Make sure you have these supplies in your packing arsenal after you declutter your home:
1. Bubble Wrap
Easy to use and effective in protecting breakables of various sizes, bubble wrap is available in rolls and comes in different sized bubbles. For the best level of protection, wrap items with the bubble side facing inward.
2. Packing Paper
Old newspapers and magazines may work in wrapping dishes and glassware, but they can transfer ink, potentially ruining your dinnerware. Packing paper takes care of this because it is ink-free. It is also very affordable and can be used to pad boxes to keep items from rattling around during caring transitions.
3. Heavy-Duty Packaging Tape
Please note that this is clear packing tape, not duct tape. You’ll to need to tape up all your moving boxes and you’ll want to make sure they are secure. To ensure a good outcome, buy proper packaging tape, not cheap tape from the dollar store.
