First, make sure to skip the cheap, ineffective grocery store cartons and get high-quality packing boxes from our supply store. Next, place heavy objects in smaller boxes for easier lifting and use wardrobe boxes to hang your clothes.
Similar-sized boxes can be used for easy stacking and to eliminate wasted space. Additionally, filling boxes completely and stuffing extra spaces with newspapers can help prevent boxes from collapsing when they are stacked.
Lastly, seal each box completely with packing tape to help prevent the dust buildup.
