  When it comes to packing, the common consensus is that people don't realize how much they really
own until it is time to pack it all.

Here are some of our packing tips when it comes to packing for a move effectively and efficiently.

Packing Tip 1 - Start early

 It is important not to leave packing until the last minute. Facing a lot of items that all need to be
cleaned, organized and packed in a short amount of time makes moving more stressful and
overwhelming than it has to be.

Packing Tip 2 - Stay Organized

 Keep a marker out to label boxes with the items they contain, the rooms they need to be moved to and
whether or not they are fragile. This makes unpacking once the move is finished much easier. Don't
tape the boxes closed until the last possible moment. Leaving them open allows you to add to the
boxes if you've forgotten something, as well as take items out that you didn't realize you would need to
use again before the move.

Packing Tip 3 - Get the right materials

 Before you start packing for a big move, choosing the right materials is important. Make sure you have
cardboard packing boxes that vary in size. Use smaller boxes to pack heavier objects, like books, and
large boxes to pack lighter items, like pillows and clothing. For heavier boxes, it is a good idea to
double up on packing tape to support the bottom of the box.

 Keep markers to label your boxes, bubble wrap and newspaper for packing fragile items and packing
tape to close the boxes before the move.

Packing Tip 4 - Follow a Timeline

 Budget your time thoughtfully and start packing the things you don't use often first, that way you aren't
faced with packing away items you might end up needing before you move.

 Start with things like pictures, knick knacks and collectibles that you don't use on a regular basis.
Follow that with out-of-season items like clothing, holiday decorations, camping equipment and serving
dishes and utensils.

Packing tip 5 - Electronics

 If it is possible, pack electronics in their original boxes before putting them all into one larger box. If
you don't have the original boxes, use packing wrap or newspaper to pad the item before placing it in
the box. When packing electronics into boxes, place heavier items on the bottom and lighter items on
top. Make sure each box weighs no more than 50 lbs.

 Before you pack away DVD and CD players, remember to take out any discs that may be inside to
avoid them being scratched during the move. For electronics such as computers, label each wire and
plug in with a piece of tape to make it easier for setting everything up again when you are ready to
unpack.

Packing tip 6 - China, silverware and stemware

 The most important packing rule for fragile items is to use as much protective wrapping as you see fit.
Layer the bottom of each moving box with newspaper or bubble wrap, wrap each item separately and
finish by filling the top of the box with newspaper for a tight fit. Just like with electronics, when packing
dishes and serving items, put heavy items on the bottom and lighter ones on top.

 Packing for a big move can be stressful and overwhelming, but if you follow our tips, your next move
can be completed efficiently with less stress. You can also have you items professionally packed by
using a storage and moving company. That will give you peace of mind that your most important
possessions will be handled with care and brought to your new place safely.

Packing Tips by dan the roommate man


This weekend, I moved from an old apartment into a new, bigger, WONDERFUL town home. Just like
any move, this one wasn't very fun. No matter how many times I do it, there are always an infinite
number of sentences beginning with "I wish I'd...." or "It would've helped so much if we'd...."

This move, I realized that the moving process needed to be organized like a scientific experiment.
There are materials you need, there's a procedure to follow. The result? You finish moving, and can
settle comfortably and un-stressed into your new home. Today we'll look at the first stage of moving:

STAGE 1: Packing

Materials needed: several good, big, black permanent markers; lots of paper to wrap your breakables
in; masking tape; friends or people who owe you favors; boxes; boxes; boxes; boxes; more boxes.

Procedure:

1. Buy the markers from your grocery store. Click here to print out a full STUFF YOU'LL NEED LIST
and get everything your going to need for the move in one trip.

2. Get your boxes: After you shop for your moving supplies, check behind the store. Most stores will
have a plethera of great boxes (unless someone's beaten you to them). If you're moving around the
beginning of the school year, you might make a call to a nearby school. Every year, teachers get in
new book shipments, so they usually have tons of extra boxes.

3. Get packing paper: If you're living in an apartment, there's usually a "paper only" recycle bin next to
the mail boxes. Raid this first, and then gather up old newspapers.

4. Convince your friends (or those who you've helped move in the past) to come over and help you.
The more people you have, the faster things will get done.

A few tips before you start filling boxes:

# Get everything on your AFTER THE MOVE LIST and put it in the bath tub of your new place. Why
the bath tub? Because it's just about the only place you won't be shoving boxes into, and it's usually
already clean.

# Do not pack things in trash bags.... especially if you have a lot of people helping you move. Someone
will throw the bags away.

# Don't just mark boxes KITCHEN, or BEDROOM. Break things down into sub-categories. It's easy to
do and makes unpacking a breeze. For example you might have KITCHEN - Dishes and Silverware;
BEDROOM - Sheets and Comforter, etc.

                                             Presented by Daniel Toriola


# When you move boxes, you'll be stacking them, so don't just write the contents on the top of boxes,
write them on every side.

# Wait as long as you can to pack your stereo or T.V. You'll want entertainment while you're packing.

# To protect glasses from breaking, wad up paper to shove inside and then wrap the glasses in several
sheets of newspaper.

# Don't foget to wad up paper to shove between breakables.

Pack 'til you can't pack any more!

Hopefully, these little tidbits will help you pack for your next move.
