Relocating day checklist: How to pack your wardrobe with no fuss, no muss



If you are planning to relocate or have already decided, you could use this article as your quick and handy how-to-do list to successfully pack and move your wardrobe to your new place. Let’s delve.

Be choosy (even if it sounds rather arrogant)

Yes, you heard us right. It’s important to embrace the quality of being picky when it comes to choosing a wardrobe for your new house. The buzzword is – declutter, declutter, declutter! 

If you have kids, you can start with purging the items your kids no longer need or want.

Pro tip – Want to know the secret to keeping your wardrobe organised ahead of the big day? Simply sort and arrange your clothes well before the date of relocation. This will save you time and money and from pulling-your- hair episodes when off the bat relocating activities give you a hard time. Additionally, you will be able to know exactly which item is where when unpacking in your new home.

Steps to sort and pack your wardrobe for relocating-

1. Do not pack outfits you no longer need. 

How to decide which clothes are redundant? Check for the clothes that-

Don’t suit the different climate of your new place

Are torn or worn out

Are outdated

You or your kids have outgrown

Clothes that are worn out or torn.

Don’t suit your style 

You never wear

2. Use wardrobe containers

Wardrobe containers are nothing but boxes that let you pack your wardrobe and move them into the boxes from your closet easily and efficiently. 

Treat your dresser drawers as your wardrobe containers, yes! How did I miss that! Well, now you know. The beauty of this stark discovery is that you don’t have to remove your wardrobe from their respective dresser drawers. If they’re putting a lot of heft on your dresser, it’s better to just secure the drawers with a few reams of packaging tape so they won’t open during relocation.

Suitcases also make for good wardrobe containers when relocating. So spend some money on boxes and pop the clothes into them. They even make for relocating heftier things like shoes and lighter items like heavier items, too, like grooming accessories.

3. Using or repurposing bags

Another set of good budget-friendly options for packing and moving clothes are bags. You can even utilize those spacious black garbage bags.

Do you shop at IKEA often? Then you would have those IKEA bags with zipper closure. They’re ideal to wrap around your attire as they cling on to the hangars.

Pro tip - Fit as many outfits as you can in one such IKEA bag and then close the zip. VoilĂ ! Your precious wardrobe stays protected and ready to be relocated.

We hope our helpful tips will see you through your big day of the move. If you remember and follow them, you will be able to pack and move your wardrobe without any trouble. Happy moving!
