UPDATE Jan It is worth it! We tried shrink wrap method on shoe organizers, to keep canvas drawers in cubbies, to keep drawers closed, etc and it really helped speed up our packing. Plus items stay organized! things that make moving easier
THE RUBBER BAND IS KEY! To all my friends moving into college. This is how to move your hanging clothes! Put a rubber band around the hangers and put a trash bag over them! A big black trash bag works the best!
Place knives in padded potholders so no one gets cut, poked or scraped in the process of moving. (If they are really nice knives, you can wrap them individually as well so they don't damage each other.
