When buying packing supplies, make sure that you buy packing tape, bubble wrap, paper padding, labels, sharpies, etc. Like boxes, it is never a bad thing to have more bubble wrap an packing supplies than to run out and not have enough. Bubble wrap is really useful in protecting fragile items like kitchen supplies (china, glassware, wine glasses, etc.). Another tip is to use dish towels that you already own to help aid in padding and protection of fragile items. This way you are getting more protection but also packing your linens. It’s like killing 2 birds with 1 stone. Aside from padding and protection, it is best to label or mark each box as “fragile” that is. It also needs to be marked with what room the box will go in at the next house. It creates a quicker unload experience.
