Packing isn’t anyone’s favorite part of moving into a new home, but with these three tricks, you’ll set yourself up for success and fewer headaches.
Everyone loves snacks, but have you considered using your empty snack containers for the purpose of moving? You’re probably familiar with those uniquely shaped Pringles cans—well, they can be an effective means of carrying your loose items in your junk drawers like pens, pencils, paper clips, or even silverware.
A popular method of packing up kitchenware when preparing to move is by wrapping it in newspaper—if you’ve ever done this, you’ve undoubtedly experienced the ink rubbing off on your hands.
During your move, a Pringles can is an effective means of carrying your loose items in your junk drawers like pens, pencils, paper clips, or even silverware.
Unless you enjoy having ink-smudged hands, try this alternative: Head to your local dollar store and buy some foam plates that you often see used for picnics. Then, place one plate over the top and one underneath each item before storing them in their respective box, and you’re all set!
Amidst all the chaos of moving day, it’s easy to get locked out of your home; by placing a rubber band around your doorknob and twisting it across the lockset and around to the backside (as shown in the video), you’ll prevent the unnecessary hiccup of getting locked out during your move. Not only that, but rubber bands are also a great way to bundle up hangers and hold small boxes shut.
