Reusing Moving Supplies

You did it! You survived moving day and are finally all settled in your new home. The Pensacola movers from All My Sons Moving & Storage understand how stressful the moving process can be, especially if you did the move all on your own. Once you’ve unpacked all your belongings, you may be wondering if you should throw away all the moving supplies or if you should save them for future use. You may not be able to think of another reason to reuse those packing peanuts or bubble wrap, but before you throw them out and waste your money, consider the following ways to reuse packing supplies. Our moving professionals are here to help you get the most out of your moving experience, and show you how easy it is when it comes to reusing moving supplies.

Reusing Boxes

The most popular leftover moving supply from any move are boxes, and they can be the handiest when it comes to reuse. Boxes can be reused around your house as organized storage or trash cans for messy items like paint or chemicals. You can use cardboard boxes for mailing packages during the holidays, or for a birthday. The Pensacola movers suggest that you fold up the boxes and store them in either your garage or attic so that when the time comes for reuse you can easily access them.

Saving moving boxes for children to play with is another very creative way to reuse boxes. For example, boxes can be used to create a fort or their own version of a racecar or castle. Your packing supplies will become your children’s new favorite toys, and their imagination will allow them to have fun with simple cardboard.

Packing Paper and Newspaper

Cut your holiday spending by using newspaper or plain packing paper to wrap gifts instead of costly holiday-themed wrapping paper. Newspaper can also be used to eliminate odors from shoes by the front door. Packing peanuts can be used as a drainage system for potted plants or used to create wall designs when repainting a room. You can get pretty creative when it comes to reusing these specific packing supplies, and you will be surprised with the different variations for future use.

While the last thing you want to think about is when your next move will take place, these packing supplies will sure come in handy if this situation occurs. Most likely you will have family members or friends who will move some time in the near future and they will be shopping around for packing supplies. Why not lend a helping hand and give them your old supplies?
