Pack Kitchen Items in a Systematic Method
Published on Friday, 12 August 2011
The best way to stay organized when packing for a move is to pack items by room. If you are doing the kitchen, consider throwing away dishes or other utensils which you no longer use. This makes the process easier and faster. For the remaining items and kitchen appliances, follow these useful tips.
1. Get the right boxes for each item. If you no longer have the original boxes of the dishes and appliances, buy specialty moving boxes to ensure protection.
2. Categorize kitchen items. Once you have segregated dishware from pans and pots and glassware, you may begin packing. You may cell dividers to separate each dish or glass. Non-breakable kitchen items such as the utensils, pots and cookbooks need not much attention.
3. Get tons of packing paper. Packing paper will keep your breakables damage-free and scratch-free. Don't use newsprints are they tend to leave marks on smooth surfaces.
4. Individually wrap dishes, bowls and glassware. Be sure to use sturdy moving boxes for protection. When loading these kitchen items inside the box, fill the gaps with Styrofoam, crumpled paper or bubble wrap to avoid shifting.
5. Before putting the breakables inside the box, lay a generous amount of packing paper on the bottom of the box to provide cushion.
By following these five basic tips, you can be sure that your kitchen items will arrive in one piece! More news
