Make a list of items that need to be moved out of your room/apartment.
Discuss with your roommates who will pack shared spaces, including:
o Living/Common areas
o Bedrooms, if applicable
o Luggage, backpacks and duffel bags
o Containers: durable bins, boxes and/or trash bags
o Organizational Items: tape, permanent markers
o Tools for furniture disassembly: screwdrivers, wrenches, etc.
While You’re Packing:
Have your move out list available and check-off tasks as you go.
Pull trash bags over hanging clothes and tie around the neck of the hanger.
Place cling wrap over toiletries and cleaning supplies to prevent spillage.
Use t-shirts and towels to wrap breakables.
Packing the Car:
Pack heavy/bulky items first, followed by lightweight and fragile items.
