Moving into a new house is so exciting … until you remember that means you actually have to pack up and move all of your stuff. But moving onto your new property in Daybreak, Utah doesn’t have to be an ordeal. Here are Daybreak Living’s best life hacks for a painless moving process.

Moving Hacks for When You Buy a Home in Daybreak, Utah

Alternatives to Buying Boxes

Before you go out to buy a bunch of boxes, take stock of all of your suitcases and bags. Chances are, you can fit a lot more into them than you think. Plus, you won’t need to pack any of your bags away because you’ll be using them, creating less waste and mess during the unpacking process, and saving you money on boxes.

If your moving date is far down the road, start collecting smaller boxes, bags, and pouches you come across, such as from online ordering. When it’s time to move, you can pack smaller items like stationary and toiletries into these smaller containers. Once you have a pile of small containers, you can pack them tightly into one big box or suitcase. Not only does this help smaller items stay organized, it also saves you a bunch of trips to and from the moving van.

You can also make use of garbage bags to make the moving process easier. Rather than removing each article of clothing from its hanger, folding it up, packing it, unpacking it, and finally hanging it back up again in your new home, simply leave the clothing on the hangers. While the clothes are still in the closet, separate them into groups of about six garments each. Wrap each group in a garbage bag, securing the drawstring around the necks of the hangers. When you get to your new place, simply hang up the garments and remove the garbage bags.

Protective Packing

You know that stash of old plastic grocery bags we all have stored somewhere in our kitchens for some reason? You can (and should) use them to cushion fragile items when packing them into boxes. If there’s room at the top of a box with delicate belongings, you’ll want to fill the rest of the box with your old plastic bags to keep the contents from getting crushed in the moving process.

You can also use your clothes and towels to protect fragile items during packing. You can put smaller fragile items in socks and place them inside of shoes, and you can use t-shirts, leggings, and other mid-sized clothing items for breakables like glasses and plates.
