Hi, it’s my favorite time of year: Summer. I’m going to camp, and it’s for a whole week for the first time for me! I have no idea what to pack, or how much to pack. I thought I should list the activities, because I need to know WHAT to pack and HOW MUCH to pack. So, we sleep (of course) swim, play…

How can I get some one to pack and move the contents of my storage unit out of state. How much will it cost.

Currently I have a 9′ x 9′ unit at a Public Storage facility in St. Louis, MO. I left all my stuff there when I moved to CT, thinking I would move back. Now it turns out I won’t, and I need to get my stuff up here.Selling it all is pretty much out of the question, a lot of it is sentimental stuff…

There are websites where you can get estimates from several companies. Tell them the size of the unit and how full it is. They will respond with estimates. I would guestimate $1000.00 minimum. I just moved from GA to CT, but my son and a friend moved me with a U-Haul. It was $1500 for the rental and I did all the packing. This was a 3 BR home, and estimates from the web ranged from 2K to 8K.

How do I start packing for moving my house out of state.

My husband is gone for a week to get thngs set up in Idaho. We are moving from Texas to Idaho. I want to pack while he is gone, but I have a 9 month old. I am not sure where to start. I don’t want to pack things I will need and then have to unpack them. Please Help!

Start by making a list of essential things you will need to keep out before packing (a couple plates, glasses, clothes, toys, etc.) then just dig into packing. Now it may seem strange that as you pack up your kitchen stuff for example, that you don’t include everything, but here’s the thing, just before you get ready to move, then you pack up the items you’ve been using and put them in the very front of your U-haul or whatever you’re using to move. Then once you get to your new place, because you won’t be able to unpack everything you need in one day, you will have the essentials in the front and easily accessible.Some things that may be easily packed ahead of time include:-books, dvd’s, cd’s-winter/seasonal clothes-anything in the attic/closet you use for storage-tupperware-extra blanket, sheets, linens-rugs-trinkets, candles, picture frames (things that aren’t essential)-old paperwork, bills, files, etc. (that you don’t need for the move)

I need advice for packing belongings and packaging material any suggestion.

My brother is studying in London. He is going to move at different place again in London. He needs to pack his belonging and stuffs before he moves. He is doing this first time so he don’t know how to do that he need packaging adviser and also packaging material like tape, marker pens and covers. He also has some…

I think your brother need help of any moving and packaging service provider. Ask your brother to locate any packaging adviser near him or I can suggest Lockaway provides proper advice to pack belonging like books, documents and electronic goods.The packaging materials offered by Lockaway includes wrapping paper, tape, marker pens and dust covers, plus padlocks for your storage unit at very competitive pricing and with bulk purchase discounts. Now what to do with sports equipments. Lockaway also provides self storage facility to store your load that you can’t throw away but don’t use often. Lockaway charge for that storage facility but very reasonable.

How soon should I start packing to move.

My husband got a new job so we are moving out of town (3 hrs away) we will not be renting a Uhaul truck, just a trailor so we will have to make a couple trips. His start date is 3 to 4 weeks away. Our new apt. is half the size of our current house and we also have an attic full o stuff to move to a storage unit. My…

I always start packing at least a month before the month. It is less stressful that way. I pack up things that are non-essential for daily living, such as decorations, pictures, photos, books, extra linens, out-of-season clothes etc. Make sure you label your boxes well. I would pack a couple boxes at least every day. And get rid of the stuff I am willing to part with. The closer you get to moving day the more stressful it is to do everything. Men always look at the big picture and women at the small details, and they don’t realize it takes time for those details. Plus you don’t know what will pop up close to moving day that you will have to take care of. And the process of moving and unloading and unpacking takes a lot of energy, you don’t want to be worn out tired by the time you have to do that.

What do I need to remember to pack for my trip.

I’m going to a resort next month. Its my first time out of the country. What do I need to remember to pack? Here is my list so farThings to pack in purse for flightPassportIDMoneyCameraImmunization recordsMajor Credit CardPhone number for hotel or Apple VacationsCopy of Passport and…

Ah, another planner, like me. That’s a good list, so I’m just throwing ideas out there.Batteries or charger for cameraExtra storage chip for camera (unless you have a way to upload them online and empty the chip)Two clothespins, because even terrific hotels often have draperies that don’t hang fully closedTiny nightlight, to find an unfamiliar bathroom in the darkElectrical converter/adapter, if you’re changing type of currentSleepwear–amazing how often people forget thisComfy clothes for hanging out at the hotel after a full dayFlipflops or other small shoes to wear inside the hotel (to vending, ice, etc.)Swimwear if the hotel has a pool, hot tub, etc.Small box to store jewelry when you’re not wearing itSunglassesSunscreenHatUmbrellaStamps and friends’ addressesA copy of your itineraryTravel books and mapsA fat novel for down-time when you’re relaxing in your room

Creative solutions for kids’ book storage.

I really need help with an organization issue! Our nursery is not that big, and we are rearranging it to more comfortably fit our 2nd baby. The bookshelf of kids’ books is going to have to move. How else can I store the books so they’re accessible to the kids and not packed away?

What my mom did was made some shelves that would be attached to the wall. I had one that was as long as my longest wall. You could do something like that, but put it down some (mine was kinda high up), and then put it where you want it. Then get some really neat bookends for it. Same concept applys for the smaller shelves as well.

How do I move from one apartment to another, pack, which day and so on.

I feel overwhelmed, have been at my apartment for a long time so there’s a lot of stuff I don’t even know where to begin packing. I don’t know where to hire someone trustworthy to pack, how to pick a mover and so on without spending a fortune. I want professionals but also trustworthy and not go…

You can look in the phone book for a mover. You can call and get a free estimate. It doesn’t matter if you on Sunday or Monday. You might be able to move your clothes, dishes, and little things next Sunday. The movers could then move your furniture and any heavy items on Monday.You should start packing up your things. You can wrap up dishes and glasses in old newspaper. You can use packing tape to secure them. The storage containers with lids are good for moving your things. You can also pack your things up in boxes. Moving is a lot of work. Ask a couple friends to help you out so that it’s not overwhelming.Once everything is moved out of your old apartment, you can go back to clean it up. Vacuum, sweep and wash the floor so that you get your security deposit back.

  2. You can try mounting fabric slings to the wall. Basically, imagine fabric that is continuously running into the letter “J”. Stitch the edges together and bind with edge. Not a bad idea to stitch down the center basically making a left and right pocket. At the very top, you can sew over and make a pocket and slide in a piece of 1×3 before you finish off the binding up there.

And once your kids have outgrown the baby books, keep a few favorites and give the rest away.

  13. Gather boxes and black plastic bags (the ones used for gardening) They are good for towels, sheets , shoes and clothing. Get 3 0r 4 friends and start one room a a time. Get also a bag for garbage and one for charity. Before you know you are done.

  14. Do you have room for a sling bookshelf?It additionally relies upon on no count number if or no longer your camp grants places to establish your stuff–some camps supply counselors closets or dressers. if that’s the case, the ideal difficulty to deliver is a duffle bag so which you would be able to fold it down and conceal it away. in the event that they do no longer a trunk or rubbermaid packing containers are reliable to apply, because of the fact they’re elementary to maintain prepared. the ideal ones to apply are the packing packing containers that are short and extensive. Rubbermaid additionally now has a trunk like field that works extremely nicely (that’s approximately $20 at Walmart). It has wheels on it, and it additionally has someplace to place a lock on it besides. i exploit that interior the dorm, and it works nicely. For camp, i exploit a duffle bag, yet our camp ingredients counselors with dressers.

  15. Go get some boxs and just start in one room, start packing. You should be able to have a two bedroom apartment packed up and really to move in a few hours.

  16. my 2 boys share a room (5years and 2 years) and we always used storage carts for under the crib to hold the books, when we had a shelf for the books the only time they ever stayed on there was when the kids were sleeping and as soon as they woke up my 2 year old felt it was his mission to take every single one off, so under the crib may not look the best but for practical reasons it saved space.

  17. I’ve even seen those over the door pockets – the ones for shoes or toiletries – used for toys and books.It also relies upon on even in the adventure that your camp grants places to regulate your stuff–some camps provide counselors closets or dressers. if that is the case, the great situation to deliver is a duffle bag so that you’ll fold it down and conceal it away. in the adventure that they don’t a trunk or rubbermaid packing containers are solid to apply, because they are common to shop prepared. the great ones to apply are the bins that are short and huge. Rubbermaid also now has a trunk like container that works fairly properly (that’s about $20 at Walmart). It has wheels on it, and it also has someplace to positioned a lock on it besides. i exploit that interior the dorm, and it fairly works properly. For camp, i exploit a duffle bag, yet our camp grants counselors with dressers.

  18. Definitely get started now if you’ll be moving in only a month. You’ll be glad you did!

  19. Sports bras

  20. We just put them in spine-up, it actually worked quite well.

  21. Knickers

  22. A small flash light and if you don’t want to have a lot of dirty laundry on the trip back take you oldest undies and throw them out after you wear them.

  23. Crates work well (on their sides) for children’s books. You may be able to stack them two-high, if they’re stable enough. Your children would be able to select their own books, plus you can find crates in lots of great colors these days. Pretty cheap, too.

  24. You will have to contact them for estimates, though. Mayflower, Atlas and United van lines come to mind.Just basically look through your house and see what you DO NOT need. That’s usually “decor” hanging on the walls, and photo frames, knick knacks, unused kitchen items, and stuff you aren’t wearing at the moment. Don’t try to do it all at once or you’ll get burned out on it, pack a little here or there. Invite some friends over to help. Order a pizza, listen to some music with your friends while you pack, and you can call it a “going away” party and it’ll keep the baby entertained too.

  25. He starts in a month? I’d be collecting boxes and going through items NOW. When I moved between states, I started going through my stuff (what to donate to Goodwill, what to pack for storage, what to have at my new apt) months in advance…I wasn’t fanatical about it, but I’d pack a box or two every evening, beginning with things I didn’t use often and moving to decorative objects and things hanging on the wall.

  26. Kids clothes are short. What about putting a short shelf or some baskets on the floor of the closet?vibrator

  27. As for when to move, Most places will let you move in a day early just talk to them about it. Other wise offer to pay your current place for one more day.

  28. And anything extra u might want oh and don’t forget sunglasses and goggles

  29. Otherwise use old newspapers as packing material.Put things in boxes based on need (eg, don’t pack kitchen things together, pack the most essential items in some boxes). Then you can leave some boxes unopenned until after the second move.Next pack away things that are sitting out, that you don’t really need. Go ahead and pack books, a few small lamps, some office stuff, and a few movies that you don’t think you’ll watch right away before you leave. Go ahead and pack up the clothes you aren’t wearing like the winter stuff, and pack up things you don’t wear that much right now. Pack up photo frames sitting on tables or book shelves, Pack some of your daughters things here and there. Clothes she’s “growing” into, toys she hasn’t played with for awhile, etc etc. You can pack while she’s napping, or put her in a swing our bouncy seat and “entertain” her as you pack by singing silly songs or dancing goofy so she doesn’t get bored. Or have a friend babysit her for awhile so you can get some packing done.Cost will depend on how much there is and how far it has to go. Yes, there are companies that will pack and move things like that.

  30. 2 or 3 bathing suits 👙Our family moved from Delaware to Atlanta and I also have 2 small children. I could NOT have done it without a moving company. They Packed everything (except for a few things for us and the kids) and moved everything. It was a breeze. The only problem was cost (over $3000.00), but worth every penny.Find a reputable moving company and take the stress off yourself.Good luck!

  31. Start with one room & decide what is not going to be needed. Then move on to other rooms. Make sure to mark each box with what room it’s from.

  32. Start by packing the stuff on the walls. Any knick knacks, photos, or wall shelves. Pack those all up going one room at a time.

  33. Something to read on the plane, a small notepad and pen in case you need to take note of something.

  34. Ok I think you have everything worked out already in your head.That way I wasn’t rushed at the end to pack my whole house over a weekend and be ready to move.Before we moved to a bigger place, we were using these:Then go to the kitchen and pack everything accept a few plates, glasses, bowls, and pots and skillets. The Kitchen always seems to be the hardest to pack in my opion. LOL Pack the appliances you don’t need. Go ahead and pack the can opener, and just use a manual opener for your cans. Leave the coffee pot out, I’m sure you’ll need it!! You COULD go ahead and pack your all your plates and just use paper plates for awhile. And pack up the canned and boxed foods you won’t be using right away (if you don’t want to pack food across country donate it to a local food pantry).Basically what you can do is put things in boxes, then pack around with with clothes and towels so they don’t get damaged.Hats👒I like to be very organized when I move. Start packing up your seasonal things (anything you’re not using right now) about a month in advance. Then pack up a little bit each day. As you get closer and closer, just keep out the bare essentials, so that on moving day, you can throw those last few things in a box and head out! Good luck on the move and best wishes in your new home!

  35. A short shelf under the crib works, too.well just take the basics, depends how long you’re going there depends on how much you need to pack. Take clothes, a notepad, a reading book, toiletries and any other basic things you think you might need just don’t over pack!

  36. Apart from storage boxes/trunks etc that can be neatly stacked or stowed in a cupboard, I tend to rotate the toys that are only occasionally played with – that is put them right away in the loft or somewhere and swap things about every month or so. It’s amazing how much more they play with something when it’s been out of sight for a while rather than fading into the rest of the stuff lying around. Sometimes it’s like they’ve never seen it before the amount of excitement when a toy comes back out!

  37. The main thing is to make sure hard brittal items area wrapped and things are packed tightly, then there will be no problem.

  38. Or you can see the U-Haul or Ryder people and move it yourself.

  39. Only thing you’ll have to watch out for is your toddler mistaking this for a ladder!

  40. First off it’s only an apartment, so you can’t have to much stuff. Try moving a 4000sf home with a 3 car garage. That’s a lot of stuff.

  41. T shirts and tank topsA jacket

  42. start boxing up crap from the garage, basement, and closets that you don’t ever use, then start on winter stuff that you will definitely not need…..don’t forget to label the boxes so that when it gets there you know where to put the stuff!!!
