3 Tips to Organize Clothing Before a Move

If you’re dreading packing your clothing as you prepare to move, you may be tempted to put it off until right before the movers arrive at your home. You may not know where to start, or you may not have a system for organizing your clothing before the move. To help you get started, use the tips below for packing clothing to ensure unpacking will be organized and easy.

1. Clean & Declutter

Before you begin packing, go through the closets and begin removing pieces that haven’t been worn in over a year. Donate or sell these items to reduce your moving load. Next, ensure everything is clean and ready to be packed so it will be fresh when you place it in drawers or closets at your new home.

2. Pack Off-Season Clothes

These items can be packed in boxes or on garment racks well before the movers arrive. Label the outside of the container with the types of clothing inside. This way, you will know how quickly they need to be unpacked or taken out of storage after you’ve made it to your new home.

3. Use Luggage for Regularly Used Items

When it’s time to pack the clothing you are regularly wearing, use any luggage you have to keep these pieces organized. This allows you to access the clothes quickly when they are needed and have them packed like you would when taking any other trip. If there is not enough space for all of these items in your luggage, it may be okay to leave some pieces in dressers or add a hanging rack to boxes and place the hangers on the rack. This also allows you to direct movers to place any luggage in an easily accessible area so it does not get lost in a sea of boxes.
