Those old moving boxes can be reused in many creative ways. Use those boxes to store and organize items you want to save but keep out of sight. Books, magazines, seasonal clothing, etc. can all be organized in those moving boxes and placed in the back of your closet. Use those boxes to ship packages and presents. Sell your boxes online, on college campuses or at moving centers.
While it’s addicting and fun to pop the bubbles, your leftover bubble wrap can be used in several ways. Keep your plants hydrated after a move when you wrap their stems with bubble wrap. If you are shipping food, bubble wrap can avoid them bumping and bruising before they reach their destination.
