Short List of Packing Hacks That Will Save Your Life

The Memphis movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage have created this short list of packing hacks that will save your life!

Cover liquids in plastic wrap

Before you pack your liquids, you should take the tops off and cover the opening with plastic wrap. Doing this prevents any spills or leaks which then turn into messes!

Pack books inside suitcases

Books get heavy- pack them in your suitcases to make them easier to transport.

Put Styrofoam plates in between breakable plates

The Styrofoam plates help protect the plates from banging against one another during the move.

Use plastic wrap to seal dresser drawers

Leave your stuff in your dresser drawers and wrap the dresser with plastic wrap to keep the drawers secure. Your drawers become their very own moving boxes.

Wrap dishes in clothing

Save on packing supplies by wrapping your dishes in clothes. It’s a win-win. You get to save money and pack your clothes all in one shot.

Put your cords in paper towel roll

Keep your cords from getting tangled up by putting them in paper towel rolls. You can write on the roll with a permanent market, and that way you’ll know exactly what the cord belongs to.

Put pillows in garbage bags

Your pillows, blankets and comforters can go in garbage bags. This keeps them relatively clean and you can use them as padding for furniture in the moving truck.

Pack essentials last

You should pack your overnight bag, toiletries, tool kit and everything else you might need into your car last.

Thread your necklaces through straws

Never have a tangled-up necklace again. Thread your necklaces through straws and you won’t have to worry about them during the move.

Put screws in a plastic bag

This is one of the packing hacks that will save you the most time. By putting screws in small plastic bags, you’ll be able to put your furniture back together so effortlessly. You can label the bags and know exactly what the screws belong to.
