Real Estate Agent

Moving your home can be both exciting and stressful though it is a process which is not like by all. Though moving offers an opportunity for change and reinvention in your life but it also comes with to-do lists and a lot of packing. Packing clothes may seem an easy task and you may think that to pack clothes, all you need is suitcases and duffel bags. But actually, you should to be a little more organized than that asclothing is heavy, and it is very important to keep your garments safe from damage while transporting them from your old home to your new home. Consider packing your clothes for moving by planning ahead and using the proper packing materials.

It doesn’t matter if your wardrobe is extra full or you have minimum clothes, it’s always good to know how to pack clothes for moving. If thought of packing clothes worries you then go through the ways that we’ve gathered to get your clothes from start to end, no matter how many outfits you own and have stored:

Sort them out:

Sort your clothes like embroidery digitizing, before you pack anything and everything. Over the span of a few years, often we get so many clothes piled up without you even realizing it. The first step to sort this all out is to get all of your clothes out from your wardrobe and consider which clothes you haven’t worn since long and the ones that you do not like and want. Donate them immediately.

Pack a handy bag:

After moving to your new place as you will probably not finish all of your unpacking on the first day, so pack a small bag with a few changes of clothes that you can use in the first few days of your move. Don’t forget to keep aside an outfit for moving day as well which should include undergarments and socks too.

Pack essentials separately:

Consider packing the items you need upon arrival to your new home in a separate container. This could include not just clothes, but also toothbrushes, deodorant, hairspray, etc.

Clothes with the dresser:

You can even leave some clothes in your dresser and pack the dresser as it is. This will save your packing material and time and will also be saved from unpacking. Just unpack your dresser and you are sorted.

Folding is an art:

Make sure to fold your clothes are neatly and tight as it will fit as many clothes into each of your boxes. The best way to fold clothes is to fold them inside out. Bundle wrapping is another option but it will slightly crease your clothes.

Pack in smaller boxes

The weight of clothes is generally underestimated so like books, it is best to pack your clothes into many smaller boxes rather than a large box. As the bottoms can fall out of the boxes, and it will be very hard to gather and carry them then.

Cheap moving:

The cheapest way to move your clothes is to pack them and move them in your own luggage. This will save energy as you can simply fold them neatly and place them one over the other. Keep larger clothes like pants/shorts on the bottom of the suitcase to make room for shirts and dresses at the top. 

You can take help form local moving companies as they can offer you great advice on how to pack and move clothes.

Good Morning Kate Steven 

I've never heard of folding clothes inside-out. But you are correct that we tend to not realize that clothes are heavier than we think
