If you are in the process of getting ready to move to a new home, there are many tasks that you will need to complete in the process. One of the areas of your home that you will need to get ready and pack is the kitchen. You will be surprised when you start working on your kitchen just how much you can cram into seemingly small spaces. As such, you may need some guidance on how to go about packing and moving your kitchen items. Then, you can get the process of packing and moving your kitchen items started.
Start with a Hard Purge of Items
The first step you will need to take when you are preparing to pack and move your kitchen items is to do a hard purge on everything. You will want to get rid of items that you no longer like or use.
A good rule of thumb to use is that if you haven't used an item for between six months to a year, you should decide to get rid of it. Those specialty kitchen items that you bought and used once? Get rid of them. You will not use them again. And if you do have a recipe that you could use them for, there is always an alternative. You can peel an apple with a knife or a handheld peeler rather than a large apple peeler device, for example.
So, go through and be ruthless with what you are getting rid of based on your use and your taste. You can use your move as an excuse to revamp your kitchen style as well. If you hate your dishes, get rid of them and buy new ones when you move into the new house.
Consider Having a Moving Company Pack the Breakables
Packing breakable kitchen items like glassware, dishes, and fine china can be a difficult and time-consuming task. You need to wrap all of your items individually and pack them carefully to ensure that they get to their destination safely. And no matter how careful you are, you might pack things incorrectly.
The alternative is to have a moving company come in and pack for you, at least when it comes to the breakable items. They have all of the supplies and the expertise to ensure that your items are properly packed for safe transport. These movers will also save you all of that time you would have had to take to do the packing yourself.
Now that you know some tips to help you out when you are moving your kitchen items, you can get the process started right away.
