How to Pack Your Kitchen

Making a move?  Packing can feel overwhelming, so prepare for it ahead of time to reduce the stress.

Kitchens can feel especially daunting.  Luckily, people who’ve done this before are here to guide you!  Moving Insider has plenty of tips on how to pack your kitchen.

For example, remember to use packing paper or bubble wrap between your dishes and your pots and pans when packing them in boxes.  If you don’t, they’ll get scratched or (worse) broken.

They also suggest putting your utensils in plastic bags.  I think this is a great idea, because you don’t want those random pieces rattling around in the boxes while they’re on the move.  Plus, plastic bags allow you to see what’s inside, so you’re less likely to stab yourself on the barbeque fork that somehow found its way into a box of cupcake tins.

When I’ve moved, I’ve also used my linens, such as sheets and towels, to wrap and pad things like small appliances, or to pad the bottoms of the boxes that will hold fragile items.  Either way, make sure your boxes are packed snug and tight, so things won’t shift.  Shifting causes breaking and denting.  And you don’t want that.

Make your move successful!
