Below are just a few of the endless ideas you are faced with when you type in keywords, such as “moving ideas,” and “packing tips for moving.”

Hanging Clothes

You probably already know that a great way to move clothes is to simply leave them on hangers and lay them across your backseat. However, there are always items that are bound to fall off when you’re carrying them, and it’s always going to be something white that ends up in a mud puddle. Not to mention, holding those hangers in your fingers does not feel nice! Wrap them in garbage bags like this before you lay them on your seat!
