Whether you are set to move out of your dorm room soon or are preparing to move into a new set of digs for the summer, moving will no longer be a challenge with these life-changing hacks.
1. Slide clothes onto hangers and into garbage bags for easy transportation
This simple hack will allow you to easily move clothes from your old closet to a new one. The garbage bag acts as a protective cover to keep clothes clean, and you can pack a lot less into boxes and luggage.
2. Pack a first night box
Moving can be exhausting, and you probably won’t get around to unpacking everything the first night. Your first night box should contain face wash, a toothbursh, toothpaste, toiletries and a hair dryer—basically anything you will need in the first 24 hours after your move.
3. Store jewelry in egg cartons
It is so easy to lose things while moving, especially small items such as earrings or rings. Egg cartons are sturdy and will keep all your tiny pieces of jewelry together.
4. Use clean socks as extra padding
Socks also tend to get lost during moving. Make them useful by wrapping up picture frames or even glassware in them. This way, your socks will stay together and prevent things from breaking during the moving process.
5. Keep cotton balls in powder cosmetics to prevent them from breaking
The worst feeling is seeing your favorite powder cosmetic shattered into a million tiny pieces. Cotton balls will prevent shattering while your makeup is on the move.
6. Use plastic wrap to create a spill protector on toiletries
Leaks occur more often than not during a move. This super easy hack uses just plastic wrap to keep your liquids from spilling all over your boxes.
7. Pack clothes into drawers and keep them from moving with Press’n Seal wrap
You will save so much time not having to unpack clothes from boxes and put them into your drawers. This hack keeps everything organized in a drawer. Then, you can just move the dresser or drawer on its own.
8. Use rolling suitcases instead of lifting heavy boxes
No one wants to risk breaking their back lifting heavy boxes. So use rolling suitcases instead. There is no need for heavy lifting, just a little light pulling.
