Moving is often an exciting adventure – you get to experience a new home and maybe even a new city. As you prepare for your move, you’ll need to pack your belongings.
This may seem simple, but if you’ve ever moved before, you know this is often one of the hardest parts of the moving process. If you try to cut corners as you’re packing, you’ll have a headache waiting for you when you start to unpack. Strategy is everything, and planning can save you stress.
Your closet is one of the most important parts of your house to plan for as you pack. Think about it – you’ll need things to wear from the day you arrive in your new home. You can always pack a change of clothes for the first night, but having your closet in order immediately will make the process much less stressful.
Here are some tips to pack your closet effectively and make your move as smooth as possible.
Organization Is Key
It’s easy to throw all of your clothes and shoes in boxes haphazardly, but you’ll regret it once it’s time to unpack. Take your time and make sure everything is tidy. Whether you fold your clothing or transport it in wardrobe bags, try to keep things as organized as possible. Label every bag or box so you can arrange things with ease, and keep your clothing on hangers during transport if you can.
Try Clever Hacks
You don’t want to take shortcuts when you’re moving, but you could use some clever packing hacks to your advantage. One example is sealing your drawers with plastic wrap – this can save you time as you move your wardrobe. Another smart trick? Use your luggage to transport your clothing, and kill two birds with one stone.
Even if you’re using boxes and wardrobe bags, you still may make mistakes if you aren’t careful during packing and moving. Be careful with your wardrobe, especially things like jewelry and formal clothing that can be ruined easily. Pack these things separately and label the boxes fragile so your moving team knows how to handle your valuables.
