Clothing has a way of taking up a large amount of space while packing. Thankfully, there are a few strategies you can take advantage of. Whether you’re currently preparing for a move or you are looking for advice for a future move, keep these clothes packing tips in mind.
If space is limited, do what they do in space: vacuum seal it. With this setup, you insert clothing into airtight bags. Then you connect a vacuum attachment that takes the air out, and seal the bag. This drastically reduces the amount of space required for clothing. It does take an additional investment to buy the vacuum sealing kit, but it may be well worth it if you move frequently or have a lot of clothing to move.
Even if you don’t vacuum seal your clothes, try to eliminate space by folding or bundling items neatly.
Spread the Clothing Around
If you have a box of books, you could fill the box halfway with books and halfway with clothing. A box full of books is especially heavy and difficult to carry. By splitting it up, you’ll divvy out the weight and everything will become that much easier to carry. You could even use clothing as padding to protect fragile items.
Use Luggage and Dresser Drawers
To reduce the need for boxes, you can pack clothing inside your luggage. Dresser drawers are even better because you might not even have to unpack. Just stick the drawers back in the dresser, and viola: moved in.
