How to Pack Up Your Kitchen
As moving day approaches, you should be completed with the packing process in each room of your house. Of course, there are those few dreaded places left over that you need to pack up – and one of them is the kitchen. Fortunately, the packing professionals at Aurora moving company, All My Sons Moving & Storage, are here to help. Pack up your kitchen with ease with the following tips:
It’s easier to eat your food now than having to transport it to your new house. You can save some money by eating all the food you already have in your house, rather than going out to eat or picking up food from your favorite restaurant. You can also get creative with the ingredients you may have already just to spice things up. If you have a ton of items you wish to get rid of but don’t want to throw away, the Aurora moving company suggests throwing a dinner party. You can provide guests with bags to take home the extra canned goods, snacks and condiments you have in the kitchen. If you have flour, have some fun and make a huge batch of cookies!
Throw Things Away
Check all the expiration dates and throw away everything that has gone bad and expired. The Aurora moving company also suggests that you consider throwing away items that are almost all the way gone. Aside from the money-saving aspect, there is no sense in taking the time to transport a cream cheese container with just enough cream cheese for a half of a bagel. Consider tossing opened bags of snacks, frozen foods, beverages and condiments. Same goes defrosted meats, eggs, greens and produce.
Pack Up Your Kitchen
The Aurora moving company says to place bagged food in grocery bags and seal them with duct tape in order to prevent leaking, especially if the food is frozen. Wrap all your spices and jars in plastic wrap to prevent breaking and shattering. Label all perishable items so you know which ones to unpack first and which ones you should consume first.
Move for Hunger, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, works with relocation companies to collect non-perishable food items, delivering them to food banks across the nation and in Canada. They work with over 700 relocation companies. You can book your move with an Aurora moving company who will happily deliver your non-perishable food donations to the local food bank in the area.
Pack all your refrigerated items in a cooler. Use all the ice in your freezer to keep your items cool. If you are traveling far, purchase some dry ice for the haul.
All My Sons Moving & Storage, a full-service Aurora moving company, suggests setting aside some money from the moving budget for restocking. As soon as you are settled into your new house, take a trip to the grocery store to fill your new kitchen with new food items.
