Why buy expensive packing materials when you can use everyday items around your house?
When it comes to moving, the expenses can seem endless, but you will be glad to know that you can save big with one major area of your move, your packing supplies. There are many things around your home that can be used to pack your belongings, and in our last blog, our movers in Sanford went over just a few of them. The following is a list of a few everyday items that double as packing materials:
#5. Twist Ties, Rubber Bands and Hair Ties
There’s nothing more frustrating than opening a box of cables only to find a tangled mess. Luckily, there are many things around your home that you can use to keep your cables organized. Twist ties, rubber bands and hair ties all come in handy when packing cords and cables.
As we said in our last blog, the key to smart moving is utilizing every inch of space you have, and that includes your suitcases! If you have rolling suitcases, use them to pack heavy items, like books, movies, games and electronics. If you don’t have rolling suitcases, you can still pack things in them, just make sure that you don’t make them too heavy.
Socks make a surprisingly versatile packing material! Rather than wrapping your stemware in foam packing sheets, use your long socks to warp them! You can also use your balled socks to secure items and prevent them from moving around in your boxes.
