  • Label every box on multiple sides and keep a list of its contents for easy reference.
  • Seal boxes with packing tape before storing to help protect against dust. Use heavy-duty tape on the bottom of boxes to prevent breaking.
  • Pack books flat to protect their spines.
  • Store holiday decorations in their original packaging. Wrap strings of lights around a piece of cardboard for ease of use.
  • Use smaller boxes for heavy items such as books. When packing heavy items in a large box, place them on the bottom and fill most of the box with light items.
