  1. When you are moving, there are a few tips that you can put to use when moving your clothes. 

    • Avoid emptying dressers. Move them as is if they’re only filled with clothes as clothes to not weigh much.
    • Hang your clothes in wardrobe boxes.
    • Use suitcases to pack your clothes.
    • You can also pack your clothes in vacuum bags or garbage bags.
    • Wrap up your clothes in sheets of plastic.
    • Use regular boxes and label the contents of the box.
    • Make sure you pack your shoes in separate boxes and not along with your clothes.
    • Avoid putting your jewelry inside your clothes as it can tear or snag your clothes.
    • Make sure the clothes are clean and dry. Wet and dirty clothes can lead to mould and mildew. 
    • Bring a seperate bag of clothes you will use during the days you will be unpacking. Unpack your clothes last and then put them in the washer right away. This avoids bedbugs.
