When you're packing up to move, placing all of your clothes in boxes can be challenging. You likely have more clothing than you realize, and if you pack them incorrectly, they'll get wrinkled or damaged when you unpack them. Here are some tips for boxing up your clothing and getting them to your new home safely.
How to Pack Your Clothes for Your Move
1. Use Small Boxes
Clothes are relatively heavy when they're crammed together into a box, so use small ones to make them easier to move. As a bonus, there will be less weight on the clothes at the bottom of each box, so they won't wrinkle as much.
2. Utilize Your Suitcases
If you don’t have boxes, pack your clothing into suitcases. They will be easy to move because of the the convenient handles and wheels. Additionally, the clothes won't get too heavy.
3. Keep Clothes With Hangers Together
When you take the clothing out of your closet, don't take them off the hangers and mix them in with the rest. Instead, bundle the hangers together and cover the clothes with a garment or plastic garbage bag. This will protect the clothes and make them easy to move into your new closet.
There's no point in devoting time and space to clothing you don't want to keep. As you go through your wardrobe, set aside any pieces you rarely wear or don't like anymore. Donate them to save yourself the time and energy it would take to pack and unpack them.
5. Separate By Season
When it's time to unpack, you'll want immediate access to all the clothes you can wear right away. Clothing for other seasons, such as winter coats, can wait. To make it easier to tell which is which, pack them in separate boxes and label them clearly.
