How to Pack a Bathroom for Moving: Packing Guide

Moving New Orleans

When packing up your items to move, the bathroom is a good place to start. There's plenty in your bathroom that you will want to save from one home to the next. Here are some tips to help you effectively pack up your bathroom and stay organized during the moving process.

Throw Away Unnecessary Items
The first thing to do when packing up your bathroom is to sort through all the items and determine which ones you need to keep and which ones you can throw away. Chances are, there are plenty of items that you don't use anymore or that have even expired. If you're a product junkie, this is the perfect time to narrow down your collection of makeup and toiletries. When getting rid of items, check to see if they can be recycled or used in some other way before putting them in the trash.

Sort Items into Categories
The next thing to do is take everything in your bathroom and sort it into categories, such as medication, toiletries, towels, linens, and more. Putting everything in categories will make it easier to keep things organized. Find appropriately sized boxes for each category, and make sure to put a label on the outside of the box identifying that it's a bathroom item, the category of the items, and a list of exactly what the box contains.

Wrap Items Safely
Once you've determined which items are going to go where it's time to start packing them up. Take liquids and put them in plastic bags, so if they leak, they won't spill all over your other items. Then, take any fragile items and wrap them in towels. The towels will need to be packed up anyway, and they will protect the items while they are in boxes. You can also use towels to line the boxes because they are light and protective.

The key to packing a bathroom effectively is staying organized. Use these tips to get your bathroom packed up quickly and ensure that your items stay protected during the move. Taking a bit of extra time to organize your items early on will save you time come moving day.
