The holidays are such a magical time of year! Most people enjoy spending time with families, hearing the Christmas music playing in the stores and the general happiness and positive energy people are tossing around like confetti.

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.

Moving Hacks for Your Home Office

Pack smaller things around heavier items to fill the empty space in boxes.

Pack books or other heavy items in suitcases with wheels for easy mobility.

Put your important documents in plastic bags to keep them safe.

Happy moving!
