Best Practices for Packing Your Closet

Small Walk In Closet

Moving can be a stressful  experience, from renting or buying a new home to packing up your current residence. Oftentimes, it can feel overwhelming to even start. The good news is, with proper planning and organization packing up your closet can be simple. Follow these tips to make your next move a breeze.

  1. Timeline

The earlier you start packing up your belongings, the easier it will be to stay on track and relieve stress. Start long before your upcoming move by packing away seasonal items. Depending on the time of year, Christmas decorations, summer floaties, or winter coats can be packed away first. As you move closer to your move date, evaluate what items will be needed and pack everything else. 

  1. Donation

We all own some items that are never used. Things that get pushed to the back edges of our closets and forgotten, taking up space just in case they become useful again. Moving is a great time to purge through some items you know you won’t need. Set aside a separate box for donations to be placed in while you continue packing. Another benefit of donating some items is you will not have to unpack them again!

  1. Organization

A little extra organization goes a long way. Label moving boxes to avoid losing important items, and make unpacking easier. It seems obvious to put items from the same room in boxes, but some items can be used to protect more delicate items. Socks are great as protection and insulation for kitchen glassware, and are still easy to put in their proper place.

Make moving easier by planning ahead, donating unneeded items, and organizing what you do pack.
