Packing Shoes for Moving

Whether you have three pairs of shoes (like my husband) or too many to count (like me), you will want to properly pack them when you move. Throwing them all into a box is not an effective strategy. Did you know that leather shoes hold onto moisture and could mold during your move? Eww! While I love shoe shopping, I sure don’t want to have to buy new shoes after my move because I didn’t pack them properly.

Here’s how to pack shoes for moving:

A little plastic wrap may have saved the day

I have a funny moving story for you. Just after I got married, my husband and I moved to a bigger apartment down the street. We moved everything by making 20 trips with one small flatbed trailer (side note: I don’t recommend this. It took forever and we damaged a lot of our stuff by being careless. I wish I had known how to move properly back then). Here’s what we did: we put a nightstand (still loaded with all my stuff) on the trailer. As we drove down the street, the drawer broke loose and the contents went rolling off the trailer right onto the street – my glasses, Chapstick, favorite bookmark, etc... all trailing along behind us.

I’m moving soon and have no idea how to pack. Where do I start?

Before you even start thinking about packing, you should think about another word that starts with a “p” - purging. Moving is a great time to go through all your stuff and decide if anything needs to go. You could donate things you no longer want or need, or have a garage sale (and put some of that money toward your move). Here is a great list of things to donate when you’re moving. If you want to have a garage sale, here are some good garage sale pricing strategies to help you get the most money for your stuff.
