There are very few things that are easy to move and pack. If you don’t take care of it, it can be damaged or lost, which can lead to a real headache. Tony sat for a while before h3 moved. I don’t know where else to begin… He spent a whole day summarizing these strategies to help people pack and organize their belongings. Don’t miss this opportunity to help you move.



1. Separate items

2. List packing list

3. Preparation of packing tools

4. Packing principle

5. Method of packing

6. Take care

1. Get rid of  unwanted items

Moving costs can be reduced by disposing of unwanted items. You can get rid of clothes that haven’t been worn in 3 months, old electrical appliances, and all other decorations that were bought on impulse. It’s okay to deal with it. Moving costs will increase if you think “keep it for now” or “this should be used later”.

Use a second-hand trading platform to get rid of old clothing and appliances.  You should do this in advance trading takes time.

2 Make a packing list

Make a list of all the items you need to pack before packing.

Kitchen: pots, bowls, condiments…

Bedroom: bed, quilt, desk, clothes…

Restroom: Toiletries, towels, toothbrushes…

3. Preparation and use of packaging tools

Make sure you have enough cardboard boxes, storage containers on wheels, a vacuum compression bag, ziplock bag, drawstring pockets, plastic bag, sealing tape, and bubble wrap. Also, keep newspaper (or old clothes, or advertising paper) along with a utility knife and marker pen.

4. Packaging principles

Each item is packaged according to its usage and frequency. The items in the box can also be marked with a marker, label paper, or a pen so that they can be quickly restored once they arrive at their new homes. Take the bedroom, for example. The bedding can be labeled as bed 1-bedding and the more frequently worn clothes as bed 2-work clothes. All other items can be packed according to their order so that you can rest easily after the move. Multiple boxes can be too energy-consuming to open.

The bottom is for heavy items, while the top is for lighter items.

You should pack items that you use frequently first, such as toiletries, a few hours before you move.

It is best to seal the box in a “well-shaped” manner when sealing it with tape. This will ensure that it is strong and won’t be easily broken.

All fragile items must be marked on the outside of their boxes “fragile”.

For easy searching, small or fragmented items and tools can be incorporated into ziplock bags.

4. Bags and shoes

Shoes can be covered with shower caps, shoe covers, or drawstring pockets. This is something Kat learned from fellow travel bloggers. Make sure that the shoe covers and shower caps are the same shapes as the shoes. Also, make sure all shoes are properly packed. To prevent shoes from deforming, make sure you stuff some newspaper inside the shoes.

You can place the bag in the suitcase and cover it with clothes. Close the box.

Bedroom Supplies

1. Bedroom, wardrobe

Bubble wrap can be used to wrap the boxes. Wrap about ten copies of each one and bundle them. The packaging cost is low and you can adjust the quantity to suit your tolerance.

Do not use a suitcase. It will cause damage and it will be impossible to move.


5. Computer
