Packing Smart For Moves
The process of having to move can be incredibly tedious, and frustrating at times. Having to pack up everything you own into boxes, moving somewhere new, and then unpacking and having to in some ways start over again. Even if you have moved multiple times before, it does not get easier, but you still pick up some tips along the way. Now, moving is also expensive, and it is important to cut costs where we can, and we can do that by packing smarter. We will go into more detail about this below, and in the meantime, you can check out a packing tutorial or two to learn how to fold and stack things better.
Moving trucks tend to cost a decent amount of money, and the cost is dependent on how many boxes you have to get moved. More boxes mean more weight and more space, which means a bigger moving truck is needed and you have to pay more. You can pack smart in two ways:
- Evaluate everything you own, and then decide what you need to take with you to your new place. We tend to collect trinkets here and there, and over time they start becoming quite the collection. So, remove everything you do not use, need, or are holding onto unnecessarily. This will automatically reduce the number of things you have to pack and lower the number of boxes needed, as well as remove additional weight.
- There are different ways to pack items and stack them inside boxes to optimize the holding capacity of cartons. Clothes are one of the easiest things to fold smaller, and you will find a lot of tutorials that teach you how to pack and fit a lot of clothes into small spaces, and how to utilize all of the space inside each box.
