Have you waited until the last minute to get started with packing up all your belongings? Don’t worry – we’ve all been there. Our St. Paul residential movers have experienced moves of all shapes and sizes and can help you get your home packed in no time. Follow the tips below from Twin Cities full-service movers to get your home packed in one day.


Tip 1: Clean Out Your Stuff

Why pack stuff you don’t need? Take a couple hours to go through each room of your home and get rid of excess stuff you don’t need. Create one pile for donation and one for trash. The less stuff you need to pack, the faster it will go. Throw the donation items in a couple boxes and put them by the door so they are out of the way.


Tip 2: Garbage Bags Are Your Friend

Never underestimate the versatility of a garbage bag. We’re sure you’ve seen this before, but if you haven’t, take it from our Twin Cities full-service movers – they are lifesavers. Don’t bother taking your hanging clothes out of the closet – just gather a handful of hangers together and pull a garbage bag over it. Voila! You have a makeshift wardrobe bag for your clothes. They can easily lay on top of your belongings when it’s time to load the car. Have a lot of shoes? Instead of wasting valuable space in boxes and suitcases, take a garbage bag and stuff it full of shoes.


Tip 3: Use Your Blankets and Towels

Instead of packing them away, use your blankets, sweatshirts, and towels as padding for your more fragile items. You will save space and time, and your dishware, glasses, and valuable décor will be safe for the journey. Bonus: you won’t have to waste boxes and storage space on towels and sweatshirts.
