1. Heavily Label Your Boxes
When we say “heavily,” we mean it. Go beyond marking the room in the house the items belong in. Make a list of all the items inside, so you can reference it later when you are looking for a specific item. You are going to need your recipe box. But it will not be very helpful if you cannot remember which kitchen box it is in. Save yourself time later by marking your boxes in the beginning.
2. Keep It Light
It is normal to think that your big items should go in your big boxes. And while this makes the most sense spatially, there are other factors to consider. For starters, your biggest items many times are your heaviest. If a bunch of heavy items are packed into one box, that is going to be one heavy box. Avoid hurting your back and breaking your box by packing light objects in your big boxes and heavy objects in smaller boxes.
3. Ditch the Old, Raggedy Boxes
You know the ones we are talking about. They have been in your attic or basement for a while. They have been through a few moves with you already and are barely holding on by the duct tape you put on last time. You want to avoid these for fragile and heavy items! Do not even risk your boxes bottoming out. If you need to replenish your box supply, Albany Super Storage sells storage supplies at our Albany NY facility. A portion of our October sales will go to Susan G. Komen for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Help us make a difference!
