Can I let you in on a little secret? Moving boxes get heavy FAST! I know, I know. You got the large sized boxes from Lowes with the intention of packing it with lightweight items like sheets and towels. After all, how heavy can laundry get?
HEAVY! Even your “lightweight” items can get heavy when packed together in big moving boxes.
When choosing your moving boxes, error on the small side. This is especially true when you’re packing paper items like books and office supplies.
As you pack each box, pick it up a few times. When it starts to get heavy, STOP! Fill the rest of the box with air pillows, bubble wrap, or something similar.
If you do end up with a few heavy boxes, make sure to rent a hand truck so you won’t have to carry the boxes as much.
What are you waiting for? Go get some boxes and start packing!
