Moves can be so stressful and packing your whole house into boxes can be a daunting task.There are little things here and there that you don’t want lost and so you wind up improvising how you pack certain items. I have taken lots of nails out of our walls and screws that hold things together, but I worry that I might not find them again when we move to our new house. What I have discovered is that there are a lot of kitchen items that can help while packing. I am going to show you just what I use out of my kitchen that will save my sanity once we get to the new house and start putting things back together.
Kitchen Items that Can Help While Packing
Plastic Storage Bags- All sizes
If you have a lot of nails or little pieces to something you have taken off a wall or when you take a part apiece of furniture, plastic storage bags can be a lifesaver. You simply just put the nails/screws in the bag, write on the bag what it goes to, then either tape the bag to the furniture piece or put them in one larger bag so you have one place to look for all the pieces you remove.
Reynolds KITCHENS® Quick Cut™ Plastic Wrap
I could truly use this all over the house. My son has rolling storage drawers where he has sorted his LEGO bricks by color. I don’t want him to have to re-sort them so what I do is take the Reynolds KITCHENS® Quick Cut™ Plastic Wrap and wrap each drawer so that no LEGO bricks will fall out. I can then stack the drawers in a box with the peace of mind that when we move he can just pull them out of the box and put them back on the rolling rack and back to building cool stuff.
In the video below, I show you just how easy it is to wrap the drawers and with the quick cut slider on the box I no longer have to wrestle with getting a clean edge on the plastic wrap. So easy that you will want to do a little celebrating too!
Pots and Baking Sheets
There are a lot of breakable things in my house. While I try to pack them with newspaper and bubble wrap, I want to make sure that they don’t break during the move. I have started using my larger pots and placed those in the bottom of a box, then I take smaller breakable and put them inside the pot. This helps to give them an added layer of protection while also packing up the kitchen at the same time. I have also used baking sheets as separators between items as well. You can use it like a shelf in between layers of packing or like a divider to help keep things from moving around in the box.
There are a lot more kitchen items that can help while packing. Kitchen towels are great for padding between plates or glasses. What are some things that you can think of from the kitchen items that can help while packing?
The new Reynolds KITCHENS® Quick Cut™ Plastic Wrap makes it just that more easy to use in the kitchen and really all over the house. Think outside the box when it comes to what you use while packing. You don’t necessarily need to buy the expensive packing papers when you can use everyday items to help your packing to go smoothly and efficiently. I can tell you that I am now celebrating getting boxes packed and know that I have all the pieces that I will need in one place and that I won’t be opening boxes with little pieces all over the place.
