Get rid of the clothes you won’t need if you’re moving to a different climate or from the country.
Remove the clothes that are out of fashion, that you or your children have outgrown, that are worn out or torn, and that doesn’t suit your style and that you never wear. You can consider selling these extra clothes in a garage sale, online, or to vintage shops. You can also donate those to charity if they still look appealing and isn’t junk. And if they do not look worth wearing and are ripped or damaged, just throw them out.
Group your clothes according to season, materials, size and need and pack them separately. It will not only ease the process of packing but will also be very helpful while arranging clothes in the closets of your new house.
Pack the dresser as it is
Don’t empty the dresser. Pack it as it is and tape all the drawers properly. This way, you will be saved from the hassle of packing and unpacking all the clothes placed in the dresser. You can use wardrobe boxes to pack hang clothes or just fold them on the hanger and pack them in a garbage or vacuum bags and all you will have to do while unpacking is remove them from the box or bag and hang them again.
5. Stuff the suitcases
Instead of taking along empty suitcases and travel bags, pack your clothes in them. It will save packing material and will enable the proper use of bags and suitcases.
Use plastic wraps
Consider using plastic wraps to pack clothes as they can be wrapped to the exact length of your hanging clothes and can be used to secure and protect clothes in drawers.

Using sheets to wrap clothes is an easy way to pack as they are easy to carry and aren’t slippery. Just simply spread a sheet on your bed and place layers of clothes on top of it. You can start with larger items and the then smaller ones and then, wrap the sheet around the clothes and tie it tightly.
