Strange Moving Tips That Work

moving tipsMoving tips are always a handy thing to have on hand and these ideas are unlike any others you have read about. They will teach you some of the most unique tips that will take a lot of the stress out of moving.

Here are some of the strangest moving and packing tips that work:

Socks on the stemware

The beauty of this packing tip is that you will be packing two things while using one of them to protect the other. Simply put your socks on your wineglasses as though they are feet. This will give the delicate stemware that extra layer of protection while you are moving.

Pack plates on plates

Everyone always wraps their plates in newspaper but let’s face it, that’s gross and the ink gets all over your hands. Instead, pick up some of those cheap Styrofoam plates from the dollar store and use them to alternately stack your plates. It’s basically instant padding for your breakable dishes.

Old sheets protect mattresses

Your old and worn sheets are perfect for adding an extra layer of protection to your mattress. With this packing tip if they tear or get stained it’s no big deal because you used old sheets. This, like the sock idea, is another way to free up extra box space as well.
