It’s easy to forget just how many toiletries and cosmetics one owns until you have to decide which ones you can bring when you’re moving to a different location. The mere sight of the number of fragile containers and spillable liquids you need to safely pack for your new home can be stressful. Around Town Movers, one of top local movers, suggests following these tips to help you:
Categorize Your Items
Before you start packing all of your toiletries, be sure to sort them out. Bringing everything you have to your new home, regardless of whether you actively use them or not, will lead to a cluttered bathroom. Go through all your items, and separate them into two main categories: essentials and things to leave behind. Afterwards, break these down into smaller parts. For instance, soap and shampoo are essential to your hygiene, but since they’re readily available in supermarkets, it’s best to leave them.
Pack Each One Carefully
The best way to pack your essentials is to cover them in bubble wrap, and keep them in padded bags with different pockets. This allows you to separate them by categories, like skin care and hair products, so you can find them easier later on. If you don’t have any bubble wrap or packing materials for the rest of your items, you can work with a professional moving company like us.
Place all toiletries into the container upright. We also recommend putting them in a clear, waterproof bag so you can immediately see if anything spilled or has started to leak. For liquid products, line boxes with towels first before storing your items. You can also put shampoos, conditioners and similar liquid products in sealable plastic bags to prevent spillage. Keep your makeup in specialized makeup bags or small plastic boxes for easy transport.
