If you are moving by yourself, you may not even realize that you can turn a lot of household items into packing products. Whether you forgot to purchase packing supplies or underestimated how much you would need, there are many ways to create homemade packing products. All My Sons Moving & Storage offers packing services in St. Louis if you wish to hire a moving company and we want to give you the best tips for utilizing items in your home that you would’ve never thought of.
Homemade Packing Paper
There are many useful alternatives to packing paper that you can find around your home that will be sure to keep your breakables safe from damage. You can use pillows for padding on the bottom of moving boxes and they work great if you don’t have bubble wrap. You can also turn towels into packing paper by separating plates and other items with towels to prevent chips and cracks. Wrap each item in a soft towel for protection. These homemade packing products will allow you to move with no stress and headaches.
Every moving box should have a label on it to maintain your sanity when it comes time to unpack. Instead of going to the store to purchase labels, you can easily print homemade labels from your computer. Your packing will be organized and uniformed this way and you won’t have to spend a dime on this supply. Of course, you can always find sharpies laying around your home to write directly on the moving boxes.
