Moving Tips You Really Need to Know

Moving can be overwhelming.  Here are some great tips by Lise Howe .  I had never heard about tieing your clothes in a plastic bag and taking photos of your computer cords.  These are two I will remember!

If you have moved more than once, you know to put all your clothes into trash bags and tie them off at the top by the clothes hanger hooks - that way you can just hang them easily at your new home. 

You know to color code your moving boxes and to pack an overnight bag of first day essentials.  You are a pro so your coffee, mug and Keurig are some of the first things you will unpack.  Bottled water will be easily at hand and you already have the local pizza delivery service on speed dial to order lunch for your friends helping you get settled. 

But do you know these?

DIY MOVING BOXES

Make picking up and lifting heavy boxes a little easier by cutting handholds in two sides of the box with a utility knife! Leave the top flaps of your triangular cut-outs attached and simply fold them in.Moving Tips from Lise Howe KWCP 240-401-5577

Use masking tape to place a large X on your mirrors and glass frames. It won’t prevent it from breaking, but it will absorb shock and keep the glass in the frame in the case that it is dropped or shuffled in the moving truck.

TAKE A PHOTO OF YOUR TV CORDS AND COMPUTER HOOK UPS

Before you disconnect them to be boxed up, take a quick snapshot of the cords on the back of your television and other electronics so that you can remember where they all go! Maybe you think this is silly, but I’m clueless at connecting things. I might never watch tv again if I have to reconnect it at a new place. 

USE YOUR ROLLING SUITCASE FOR HEAVY BOOKS

The first time I ever moved after my first year of college, I bought big boxes and put all my books into one box.  Naturally, I couldn't move it down to the storage unit in the dorm's basement - Lesson learned! If you’ve got them, use your rolling luggage bags for really heavy items like books. Now you can avoid the heavy lifting and simply roll the bags onto your moving truck.

USE THOSE OLD FITTED SHEETS TO YOUR ADVANTAGE

Surely you have a closet somewhere in your house with old sheets and blankets. Use those fitted sheets to protect your mattresses on moving day! Put one on just like normal, and then place another on the bottom for complete coverage. This will keep dirt and debris off of your mattresses in the moving process.

Gas and oil are considered hazardous and flammable. It’s probably not a good idea to pack a lawn mower or weed eater full of gas in with the rest of your stuff in the moving truck. Be sure to drain it out before loading it up. Your lawn mower needs a good tune up every now and then anyway.

DEFROST YOUR REFRIGERATOR AT LEAST A DAY BEFORE MOVING

Your movers will appreciate you! 

UTILIZE ALL THE SPACE AND DOUBLE PURPOSE IT ALLLise Howe KWCP Moving TIps 240-401-5577

Think outside of the box! Use your pot holders to safely hold knives, store socks inside of shoes and boots, use the inside of your washer and dryer for storage — anything you can think of to fill up empty space. This will save much needed room on the truck.

Put your spices inside your crock pot.

Put your soft items like comforters in big plastic bags to cushion other things in the trust and to fill in empty spaces. 

Put your stemware in clean socks before you pack them.  You use your socks for a great purpose and protect your stemware.

and use styrofoam plates between the plates to cushion them.

STOP GOING TO THE GROCERY STORE TWO WEEKS BEFORE YOU MOVE

The less you have in your fridge, the less you will have to move or throw away. You can create some wonderful meals from what you have in your fridge and your cupboard. Use it up!
