The nuances of packing things

It should be understood that you can easily pack some things yourself – personal items, clothes, dishes, books, but there are items that require the participation of professionals for packing – for example, household appliances, aquariums, chandeliers.

There are some rules that will make it easier for you to collect things:

Everything of particular value is packed separately and kept with you. These are important documents, jewelry, money. Necessary medicines should also be at hand.

Essential items are placed in a separate box: personal hygiene items, towels, phone chargers. Do not forget about home clothes, slippers, two changes of clothes.

First of all, durable things are packed: bed linen, books, clothes. After that, proceed to the dishes and other fragile things. Furniture and household appliances are packed last.

The box with things should not be very heavy. It is not always possible to weigh it, but there is a “rule of thumb” to determine the optimal load. If the box cannot be moved with the thumb of the hand, then some of the things are removed from it. Each box is signed on all sides.

Clothes, food, household chemicals are packed separately from each other and from other things for quite understandable reasons. Sharp objects are placed away from the glass.

An interesting life hack for transporting cosmetics will help prevent it from spilling. Cotton pads or small cotton balls are placed in powder boxes or sets of shadows.

Services, vases, figurines are wrapped in bubble wrap or wrapping paper, preferably in 2 or 3 layers. Then they are placed in a cardboard box, pre-selected in size. The boxes in which dishes or figurines are transported must be small. To prevent objects from hitting each other during transportation, partitions are made of thick cardboard, there should be no voids in the box, a filler is used. Plates are best stacked on edge rather than stacked on top of each other. Crystal glasses should stand on a stem, and not lie on their side. To save space, small items are placed in dishes. For example, forks and spoons are wrapped in paper and placed in a large pot.

Clothes that can be transported folded are placed in boxes, and for capricious things there are special boxes where things will feel like in their own wardrobe.
