Cord Moving and Storage Provides This Month’s Packing and Moving Tips
JEWELRY AND SMALL STUFF:
You know how it stinks to have jewelry get tangled up? For a couple bucks at Wal-Mart (and a little spare time, but it’s worth it)…there are jewelry baggies.
These also come in nice if you have furniture with adjustable shelving (usually particle board)….place the shelve support thingies (for a lack of better term) or screws into a baggie, attach it to the item or label as to which item it goes with.
if you won’t remember which cord goes to which component…
A small piece of masking tape. Or some colored post it notes (with extra tape to secure it) A goes to A….B goes to B….Line In on A goes out Line Out on B…..
MOVING ON A BUDGET – PACKING MATERIALS:
– Newspaper (on stuff that won’t mind a little ink)
– Reusable shopping bags.
I’ve even wrapped glasses in socks when traveling. But you you might consider having the professionals pack at least the breakables
Use 1.5 cube containers that your mover can provide – ask for used since at this time of the “Peak Season” they ought to be able to provide them at no cost to you.
