This is particularly crucial for objects made of glass, ceramics, or other delicate materials that are susceptible to breakage or chipping. Follow our tips to protect your important belongings!

1. Create a “Just in Case” Supplies Bag

2. Keep Boxes from the Same Room Together

Creating an organization that works for you is the key to successful storage. Pack and store boxes from the same room together, so when you go to unload the boxes, you will know where to take them. Save time by labeling your boxes with the room name and the general contents of the box. For example, specify that a box is holding kitchen supplies, notably the blender and coffee maker. When you go to look for your blender later, you will be able to find it easily without having to rummage through boxes.
