What kind of packing supplies will you need?
Moving means that you will be packing a lot of stuff in boxes and bags. Here is a list of many packing supplies you should go out and get it today.
Tape: packing tape is very important. You’ll be sealing your boxes using this tape. So don’t hesitate to buy extra tape because you’ll need a lot.
Boxes: boxes are your primary supplies. You’ll need both small and big boxes to get stuff in. don’t just go out there and get boxes of one size. Try to find boxes that are tall, small, big and wide for every kind of product you have at home. Just determine the size of the boxes at home before you go out and get them. Make a list of how many small, tall and big boxes you’ll require and then go get them.
You’ll need at least two pair of scissors: you’re going to need to cut a lot of things. When you arrive at the new place, you’re going to need to cut all that tape you used to seal the boxes and who knows when you’ll need more scissors. So carry at least two pairs with you.
Have transparent bags: transparent bags are great if you want to put stuff in that you need to access immediately. Put all your essentials in this transparent bag so you know where these things are for easy access.
Get different colored markers: color coding your bags and boxes will help you a lot. Start by color coding the rooms first. For example, you can set yellow color for lounge, blue for your bedroom, pink for your kids and so on. Now label all the boxes with colored markers.
