3 Tips for Moving

Summer is peak moving season. While no one enjoys moving, it’s a chance to start fresh and take advantage of new opportunities. While the most stressful part may be the packing, packing your closet is a great excuse to get organized. 

If you’re planning a move this summer, here are a few tips to help make packing your clothes a little easier.

Tip #1: Declutter

No one wants to move more items then they have to. Before you pack any clothes, think about the last time you wore them and if it’s worth them making the journey. If you don’t wear the item often, donate it. Decluttering will save you time and energy when it comes to moving.

Tip #2: Choose the right method

Are your clothes hanging or folded? This should determine how you pack them for the moving truck. If clothes are hanging, it’s nice to keep them hanging, while folded clothes can stay folded. 

One of the easiest and most cost effective ways to move hanging clothes is to slip them into a garbage bag, with the hangers poking out of the top and cinch the bag around the hangers. This keeps the hangers neatly together and allows the clothes to hang during the move. Garment bags or a wardrobe box would also be a great way to move hanging items and protect them from any dirt.

If your items are folded you can fold them and place them in boxes or fill up a suitcase. If your dresser is stable enough you could also leave your clothes in the drawers and tape the dresser drawers closed–but be aware that leaving the clothes in the drawers will add significant weight for moving!
