  1. I have moved several times.
    My best advice: I have a master list (I make few copies) instead of writing everything on the box. I write the number 1 , 2, 3 etc. on ALL sides and top of box. So when they are stacked you can see from all angles the number of the box. On my list under number 1 I write details of everything in that box. Time saving. If you have to find something the list will tell you the number, then look for that number.

    Also I too get rid of everything not used. Like the million lipsticks and products we tend to buy and never use. It feels so good to get organized.

    Good luck Everyone!

      Wow, that is an awesome suggestion. I get migraines from Sharpies. So I can’t write on the outside of the box with anything other than pen or highlighter. Not working so well… This will be a life (sanity) saver! Thanks!

  2. I pulled the handles of the garbage bags over the hangers, this way if something slips off it ends up in the bottom of the bag and you can reuse the garbage bags.

  3. I’ve been doing research for a about a month on packing as we are planning a future move. This has been the best advice to date. Thank you for this.

  4. I read your blog and i get the valuable packing ideas on your blog. Packing while moving is a big responsibility task. We do not understand how to pack. But i read your tips and i like your box packing idea. Thanks for such post and please keep it up.

  5. Congrats on the new house! We just moved in April and our moving company recommended getting large bicycle boxes from the bicycle store in town to move our large pieces of framed art. It worked out really well! Good luck with your move!

    1. Oooh, that’s really smart!
