Do It Right With Quality Materials
During a move, some people try to save a buck by grabbing used boxes from the grocery store. They’ll also use newspapers to wrap up their valuables and will stuff the boxes so there’s less to carry. Thinking they’ve been smart and resourceful, they head to their new home and begin unpacking. That’s when they realize their poor packing job did more harm than good. Some of their belongings are broken and others are stained from the newspaper they were wrapped in.

Packing Tips to Know
- Make sure all packing is done before moving day. Otherwise, you’ll be more likely to make mistakes and leave items behind. Pack up your home in stages and allocate some time each day to work on it.
- Declutter your home before you begin packing. This way, you’ll know what you’re going to keep, leave behind, trash or donate. Once it’s time to actually begin packing, you’ll have less to work with and will feel better about the task at hand.
- Label all furniture or anything that’s not coming with you as “Not going.”
- Put items of similar sizes and weights into the same boxes. Box according to room and assign a separate color to each room so you can easily color-code the boxes.
- Do not overstuff boxes. Otherwise, you risk damaging everything inside. Be sure to keep all boxes under 40 pounds.
- Fill all gaps in boxes with packing paper to prevent items from shifting during transit.
- Always put heavier items in the bottom of the box and lighter items on top.
- Use packing paper instead of newspaper to wrap items. Newspaper ink can bleed and stain your belongings.
- Make sure all boxes are properly sealed, closed, color-coded and labeled.
- Keep important documents or family heirlooms with you. This way, you’ll know exactly where they are and won’t need to go digging for them later.
