What to do with Moving and Packing Materials

Moving is hard! You not only have to pack up everything you own, transport it to your new home and then unpack and place it all, you have to worry about what to do with all the moving and packing materials afterwards.

You’re already exhausted from the move and the last thing you want to worry about is all the moving boxes that are piling up in your rooms or garage. Some of the most common packing items disposal dilemmas include:

  • Cardboard moving boxes. Mountains of cardboard are taking up space in your home, garage and stress limits.
  • Bubble wrap. You unwrapped the fragile items and now wonder what to do with all that bubble wrap other than use it to amuse the kids. The popping noise is driving you nuts.
  • Packing paper. Newspaper and other paper used to wrap items is taking over your living areas.
  • Packing peanuts. Especially-delicate items encased in packing peanuts to protect them are free, but so are all these small and clingy peanuts. They’re sticking to everything!
  • Plastic wrap. Wrappings for furniture or stretch wrap is really stressing you out.
  • Sealing boxes and securing packing materials is one thing. Getting rid of sticky tape is another.
