2 – Invest in real moving boxes, Strong College Students has an assortment of  low cost moving boxes for upcoming move.   Anne expressed that “liquor store boxes are great for glasses and vases, but the big boxes actually take less time to pack and unpack. They’re fabulous for linens, pillows, clothes and bulky items. Wardrobe boxes are fabulous. They will make your life so much easier”.  To make things easier our moving company provides FREE wardrobe boxes on your moving day this is helpful because as Anne explains “You can pack all the closets up immediately and have easy access to your clothes before AND after your move.” Anne also states that you should “Get the movers picture boxes and separate your pictures with cardboard. The frames will rub against each other during the move and get scratched up if you don’t. Use big boxes for your lampshades, too. You don’t want them to be dented and crushed. If you want to save money, check Craig’s List – lots of folks give the boxes away after they’ve moved”.

3 – Pack your boxes according to room. Put all your master bedroom stuff together, all the kitchen stuff together, all the bathroom stuff – ok you get the picture.
