So, you’ve packed before. Maybe for vacation or moved to a different house with your family, and maybe you’ve even moved back and forth to and from college. You’ve heard packing tips like rolling your clothes, using airtight bags to fit more or even wrapping your fragile items in your soft sweaters. But, what haven’t you heard that may just help you this year?
Here are our top 3 unusual packing tips:
1. Pack your silverware in socks- Well, make sure you’ve washed the socks since your last gym session before you do this one. This tip may seam slightly odd, but you’ll be surprised at how well it works! Your silverware will fit perfectly in a high tube sock and you can tie the sock in a knot at the end so they don’t fall out!
2. Use trash bags for hanging clothes- If you’re just driving home or packing your stuff for storage but plan on hanging it up right when you get back, this is the perfect tip! Keep all of your clothes on the hangers and just take trash bags for large sections of them. Poke a small hole at the bottom of the bag and put your hangers through them, tying the bag at the bottom to enclose you clothes- This will make carrying them SUPER easy!
3. Plastic wrap for liquids- Moving shampoo, body wash, or any other liquids? Not surprising! Open the top of the bottle and put plastic wrap at the top so that when you close the top again, there is no chance of spillage!
