Packing for a move can be overwhelming. It can be easy to forget some items. Clothing is something everyone dreads moving. We all acquire so much in our closets that sometimes you don’t know where to even begin.
It is important to create a plan and dedicate time to packing your clothes. This month, the Tucson Moving Service team gathered the best tips for packing your clothes for moving.
1. Plan Ahead
You should assess how much time it will take to pack all your articles of clothing. Set aside time to get organized and plan to take on the task. Be sure to have packing materials like boxes, tape, and labels ready!
2. Throw Out the Old
Once you have made a plan, assess what you can get rid of in your closet. The less you have to pack, the easier the packing process will be. You should discard clothing that is old, worn out, as well as anything you no longer want. Anything that is still usable can be donated or sold at a garage sale. The rest can be thrown away.
With the items you have left, make sure that they’re clean and dry. You don’t want to move into your new home and immediately have to do laundry on top of unpacking.
After you have gotten rid of old clothing, you can begin to pack. If your clothes are on hangers, don’t worry. Pack your clothes with the hangers still on them for easy unpacking. You can place them inside a box or throw a large trash bag over them with the hanger hooks coming from the top.
Use any suitcases or travel bags to pack your clothes and shoes. That way you can save your boxes for other items to pack. Also, be sure not to overpack your boxes or bags. Overpacking can cause the box or bag to break, which can make a bigger mess.
