1. Use garbage bags for clothes on hangers
Leave all of your hanging clothes on the hangers, and just slip a garbage bag over them. Don’t forget to label them and you’ll know exactly where each set belongs.
2. Put cotton balls in your makeup compacts
This is one of the best little-known packing hacks. Open up your makeup compacts and put some cotton balls inside. The cotton balls will act as a cushion so that your compacts don’t break while moving.
3. Color-code your boxes
Knoxville movers suggest that if you use a color-coding system, you’ll have a much better idea of where everything goes on moving day. You can use different colored labels or markers to differentiate rooms from one another.
4. Use suitcases for the heaviest items
Suitcases have handles and wheels which makes transporting heavy items easier.
5. Label your boxes on the side
Don’t label your boxes on the top, because you’ll never be able to see where they go or what’s in them if you start stacking boxes.
6. Take pictures of your electronics before you unplug
Before you unplug everything, take a picture of the cords on the back of your television or other electronics so that you will remember where they all go.
7. Plastic wrap your dresser drawers
If you’re leaving everything inside your drawers, wrap your dresser in plastic wrap to keep everything from coming out!
8. Cut holes in the sides of boxes
According to the Knoxville movers, you can cut small triangle shaped holes on the sides of the boxes to create handles for easy lifting.
9. Pack all liquids separate
Keep all of your liquids in a separate plastic box, and place a piece of plastic wrap on the opening before putting the top back on.
10. Use Ziploc bags for screws and bolts
Stay organized by keeping all of your screws and bolts in separate Ziploc bags. You can label them so that you know exactly what they belong to.
