We understand that moving can be a huge pain. Packing everything efficiently can be as much of a hassle as remembering where you put the things you need. One of the areas that many movers have trouble in is packing their clothes properly when moving. What’s the best way to organize your clothing? How should I fold my clothes to get the most out of my vehicle? Hear from our movers in Doylestown, PA on some of the top tips that you can use when packing clothing for a move.
Sort your clothing. Organize your clothing by categories before you pull out your first box. Make categories for both articles of clothing (shirts, bottoms, undergarments, etc.) and each family member. That way, when it comes time to unpack, there will be no confusion over whose socks are whose.
Get rid of unnecessary clothing. Moving might be a pain, but it’s the perfect time to declutter your life! When you’re sorting through your clothing, make three piles: one to keep and bring to your new home, one to donate to a local charity or clothing drive, and one for items that belong in the garbage (holes, stains, outdated, etc.). Can’t bear to get rid of that wedding or prom dress? Movers and storage in Main Line, PA can help you keep your sentimental items while also freeing up space.
Set aside items you need. When you’re packing, it can be easy to forget that you need to put clothes aside for yourself! Don’t forget to set aside as many outfits as you and your family members will need during the moving process; that way, you won’t need to dig through boxes you’ve already packed!
Leave some items in dresser drawers. If you’re moving furniture, make your drawers do the work! Leave items like socks and T-shirts inside the drawers of dressers that you’re moving for a quick fix.
