Packing Tip – Top it off
When packing boxes, you want to pack each box so that the items in the box do not move around.
If you have some room left in the top of your box, you can use linens to fill the empty space; towels, pillow cases, pot holders, oven mitts, hand towels, wash clothes, place mats, table cloths, dish towels, etc.
These items will fill the space and provide extra protection in case the contents shift during your move. If needed, use old newspapers to fill in the space.
