How to Quickly Pack your Bathroom in 7 Steps

Howtoquicklypackyourbathroomin7steps

For most people, packing for an upcoming move doesn’t sound too fun. A single room can seem like an entire monthly project. Take, for example, your bathroom – the tons of supplies that are stored in this room are difficult to store – and are perishable to note! Luckily, I’m going to provide you with a handy list for packing your bathroom quickly and easily.AQ Throw Stuff Out

 A.  Throw Stuff Out

 

Packing to move is the perfect opportunity to get rid of things that you’re not going to use any more. Toiletries that are almost full, or unopened can be given away to friends, family, or donated. However, when it comes to toiletries that you can’t give away, simply throw it out. For some people (cough, hoarder, cough) it might be difficult to get rid of these objects, but I promise, throwing them out will give you more than holding on to it. You don’t want to start your life at your new home with a bathroom full of clutter.

 

 B.  Organize your belongings

 

Many people store lots of random ephemera in their bathroom, either as decoration, or because they simply don’t know where else to store it. Whether it’s seashells, a half a bottle of spray sunblock, or almost empty conditioner that you’ve since replaced, now is the ideal moment to sort it. Try organizing items based on use – daily use objects should be placed in one pile, and stuff that you’ll never need to use in another. Items that you’ll use sometimes, but not every day, should get their own pile.

 

 C.  Bring essentials in an overnight bag

 

It’s worth it to pack a tote bag or duffel bag with the essential items that you’ll need every day. This way it’s easy to access on your last night in your home, on the morning of the move, and immediately after you arrive at your new home. Any personal care items, medicine, toothbrushes, a scarf, etc should be kept in this overnight bag. This bag can be packed up on the morning of your move.

 

 D.  Plastic Bags

 

Bathroom items have a tendency to get messy over travel. You can contain potential messes, and prevent them from spreading, by putting all liquid, powder, and gel items inside plastic bags that zip shut. It might be another thing to do, but it’s certainly something you’ll be glad you did in case something leaks.

 E.  Try using small boxes

 

Many items in your home, like dishes or disassembled furniture, call for the use of large boxes. With bathrooms it’s different. These dense items can get pretty heavy when all packed together, to the point of being difficult to carry without the box breaking. Try using a few smaller boxes, so the general load is easier to carry.

 

 E.  Towels as pads!

 

Don’t waste paper by using newspaper or buying extra packing material. Use towels and washcloths as packing material!! You already have them, and have to pack them anyway!! A great extra way to pack pressed powder items like makeup is to put a cotton pad inside the compact, above the powder, and close it. It can keep the pressed powder from cracking during transport.

 

 F. Label all boxes

 

You want to be labeling boxes with the name of the room it’s supposed to go to. If your home has more than one bathroom, ensure that the boxes will be labeled according to what room they belong in, and write what’s inside the boxes on the box. That way, it’ll be much easier to find personal care items when you need them, instead of having to rifle through a ton of unmarked boxes.

 

The above system of tips should make it super easy and fast to pack up your bathroom. By following them, you can have a completely clean, stress free moving process for the entire bathroom.
