First, go through and view each room in your apartment and sort everything, and you should examine yourself that you need these objects. Smooth away all the things you do not use anymore as soon as possible. You can start with expired food and medicine, toys with missing pieces, damaged furniture, something you did not use for one year. Put your items into categories such as should be packed, sold, donated, or stored. However, do not throw away old linens and towels or table clothes. Because you will use them as wadding when packing fragile items like dishes, vases, etc.
Keep similar items together, clothes, books, toys, and utensils, etc. Cluster items or packing room by room help you to unload your belongings quickly.
Label boxes with the room it belongs to and the contents of the pack. Remember to give numbers to boxes and list them on a file to not lose or forget any box during your apartment moving. Write big numbers on packages with a permanent marker. Besides, ensure that you mark packs with breakable as fragile. Label your boxes on the side, not the top, so when you stack them, you will be able to see what's inside.
You can use colorful stickers or tapes on each pack according to their contents or their origin of rooms, so you know what goes where. Furthermore, you can also tape names or stickers to doors of the new apartment to address movers.
In the jungle of moving, you should need to keep packing supplies in a basket so that you can find cushioning material, duct tapes, and the others quickly and take with you from room to room so you do not lose them in chaos.
If you have difficulties in emptying your drawers, putting stretch wrap over them. Pack the clothes with their hangers, move them in bunches in garbage bags. Leave the hangers out of the garbage bag and tie a knot so you can move your clothes to your new apartment without contamination.
Use sturdy boxes for heavy things like books. Using suitcases with wheels can help you carrying books. You can also cut triangles in packs to create handles for easy carrying.
Place packing paper or towels between plates before boxing them to cushion. Plastic grocery bags and egg cartons are great for softening your breakages. Also, you can use egg cartons to pack your jewelry, so they do untangle.
Fill up the spaces like baskets, trash cans, cooking pots with smaller items to save space in packs. In addition, vacuum storage bags are great for saving space.
Keep small pieces of hardware organized in plastic bags. Then make sure to tape each bag to the part of the furniture it corresponds to. Do not forget to get a toolbox handy in your car to assemble any furniture. If you take a picture of your electronics' back before packing them up, you will m quickly put it together when you arrive at your new apartment.
While packing furniture, use blankets, fitted sheets, pillowcases. Secure your furniture with blankets and tapes. You can cover tables with a fitted sheet and protect chairs with pillowcases to prevent scratches. Use mattress' covers to not only preserve furniture but also keep them clean.
