Packing clothes can be one of the most confusing things to accomplish during a move. You wouldn’t think so, but trying to keep everything organized to ensure you do not forget anything can be quite the task. At the same time, you do not want to pack everything all at once because then you will be left with nothing to wear.
To help you stay organized with your move and ensure you do not miss anything, we have come up with a few tips to help you get your wardrobe packed for your next step.
Tips for Packing Clothes for the Move
Sort out your clothing
The first step, when it comes to your clothing, is to separate your clothing into two piles. One pile contains the dress that you want to bring with you to your new place and the second has those that you are planning to get rid of.
For the clothes you do not plan to keep, you have a couple of options to getting rid of them. You can donate them to a charity or GoodWill, sell them at a garage sale or to some clothing stores or give them away to family and friends. However, if you choose to get rid of your clothing, this will help cut down on the amount you need to pack away.
Pack items early
Depending on the time of year you are moving, there are some articles of clothing that you do not wear. These items you can pack away early to help cut down the workload on running day. For example, if you are moving in the middle of summer, you can pack all of your winter clothes early and have them out of the way and ready for the professional moving company to load up.
Keep things on the hanger
Packing clothes is not a difficult task as you can throw everything in a box. The tricky part comes when you have to unpack the items and try to organize them at your new house. One way to make the transition a bit easier is to keep everything on hangers, so you do not have to spend a lot of time hanging your clothes and sorting them out. Using a trash bag to place over a group of clothes on hangers can be a great way to keep similar items together and protected during the move.
