Keep pesky cords from tangling with toilet paper rolls. Label them and arrange them by room for ultimate organization.

Moving Tips for Your Bathroom

Put your earrings, necklaces and bracelets in egg cartons so that they don’t tangle.

Keep bottles of liquid from leaking by opening them, putting a piece of saran wrap over the opening, then screwing the cap back on. You can also do this while traveling!

Use a binder clip as a blade guard on razors to avoid unwanted cuts while unpacking.
