Packing Tips for Moving House

Hey everyone! Welcome back to my channel! Today I’m going to share with you guys some packing tips I used to get ready
for my upcoming move. I actually move tomorrow. I’m super excited about it! I
hope you guys enjoy the tips and let’s jump right in. My first tip is to label
all your boxes and containers with painters’ tape. I like this because my
boxes are being reused for my grandma’s recent move so her labels aren’t
necessarily what I’m putting in each box. Painters’ tape is nice because it’s
bright blue so it’s really easy to find and it doesn’t leave any residue behind
so you can use it on decorative containers and you don’t have to worry
about cleaning off any of that sticky stuff. I like to label my boxes with
either the contents or the room it’s going to so that the people that are
helping me move know where to take it when we get there. My next tip is to use your clothes, towels, and linens you have as packing materials. Here I’m just putting some
art with glass in it with some clothing so that it’s nice and protected, and I’m
not wasting any money on that packing padding or bubble wrap. I also really like to fold my boxes
closed instead of taping them. I do this by just going around in a circle
and then I pop out the last corner. This makes it super easy to pull them
back open when you need to get back into them and you’re not wasting so much
money or plastic on tape. My next tip is to keep your jewelry in a hard
container like a mason jar or some kind of Tupperware so it can’t get crushed or
broken in travel. If you are worried about it tangling do use separate
containers. I also really like packing into furniture. Anything with drawers
or cabinets, fill those up with items. This helps you decrease the volume overall, so if you have a truck with limited space definitely pack into your furniture so
that you’re not using as many boxes. This will, of course, make your
furniture heavier so you might have to take the drawers out when you’re
actually moving things in and out of the buildings. I really like this tip because I think clothing takes up a lot of space and hangers are just a very awkward item
to pack. If you take a trash bag and poke a hole in the top you can put a
bunch of your hanging clothes in it and then tie up the bottom to protect them. It saves you a ton of time packing. I would recommend putting more items in each bag, but this is just a demonstration for you guys. Then my last tip
I think is the most important and that is to pack a bag for a few days that has
all of your hygiene essentials and a couple outfits. Unpacking may take longer
than you expect so it’s always nice to have everything
that you need right there at your fingertips. Those were the packing tips
that I used to get ready for my upcoming move. I really hope that you guys found
this video helpful. If you did please give it a thumbs up or leave a comment
to let me know. Also comment down below if you have any other packing tips
that I didn’t mention that you like to use. Thank you guys so much for watching this video and I’ll see you in the next one! Bye!

  1. I always like to pack a kitchen essentials box – a couple of bowls, plates, mugs, glasses and cutlery for how many people will live in the new place and coffee/tea equipment if that's your thing! Great to have to hand. I also like to have some food frozen or in the fridge but ready to reheat (like lasagna or something) so I can skip ordering a pizza when the hangry strikes.

  2. Good video. No annoying music. No reading required. No unnecessary life story or opening. Easily understood tone without forced higher pitch. 👍👍👍
