Packing for your move is easy as picking daisies
Packing In The Kitchen
Packing is much more convenient, and less tiring when you have a good work area. I suggested that you use a large table and do your packing on the table. Keep in mind that when you are packing fragile articles you should plan to pack the heaviest objects toward the bottom of the carton; more delicate articles should be packed closer to the top of the carton. The first thing to do is to lay out flat on the table a sizable stack of packing paper. Select a sturdy, medium sized carton. Line the bottom of the carton with several layers of packing paper for additional cushioning.
Place one plate in approximately the center of your packing paper.Grasp about two sheets of paper at one corner. Pull over plate so as to completely cover plate. Stack second plate on first plate.Grasp second corner of your paper. Pull over and cover stacked plates.Stack third plate. Take remaining two corners (one at a time) and fold each over your stack of plates.Turn your wrapped stack of plates upside down onto your packing paper.
Re-wrap entire bundle. Follow same wrapping procedure as before, Start with one corner of packing paper, and pull two sheets over the bundle; cover bundle with next corner, then the third corner, and finally, the fourth. Seal the bundle with plastic tape.Place the bundle of flatware in carton so the plates are standing on edge.For all flatware, saucers, bread and butter dishes, etc., follow the same procedure.
Packing Cups And Glasses
Cups and glasses may be “nested” (one placed inside another) and three or four wrapped in a bundle. Tear or cut-up some small sheets of paper. Use at least a couple of small sheets between each glass or cup as protective lining. Take first glass and line with a couple of sheets of your cut-up paper. Place second glass (or cup) inside the first one. Line with two more sheets of paper. Insert another glass (or cup). Using your best judgment, nest three or four glasses (or cups) and lay these on your stack of wrapping paper in a diagonal manner, off center closer to your body. Grasp corner closest to you of two sheets of wrapping paper. Wrap around your glasses (or cups). Grasp next corner of wrapping paper and wrap around your glasses. Repeat procedure with remaining corners of wrapping paper. Then roll into a bundle (much the same as a butcher might wrap a package of hamburger).
If you have collected some liquor cartons with dividers, pack glasses, cups and stemware in these boxes. If your bundle does not fill to the top of the compartment, stuff additional wadded-up packing paper in the compartment to fill it up.
If you don’t have liquor cartons then pack your glasses, cups and stemware in boxes with your other dishes fitting them in where ever you find some spaces. Be sure these articles are toward the top of your carton.
Goblets and Stem Ware
Pack goblets and stemware singly. Do not attempt to nest them as you did with glasses. Follow the same wrapping procedure as you did with glasses and cups.
Packing Small Kitchen Appliances
It’s best to pack your small kitchen appliances (blender, toaster, can opener, coffee maker, etc.) together in one or two boxes (or more, as necessary) rather than in other boxes with other goods. Later, when unpacking, you will find this much more convenient.
Wrap each appliance individually with two or three sheets of your packing paper. Place each one in the box you have selected for appliances. When all appliances have been packed in a box, or boxes, if there are small spaces that are empty, wad-up some packing paper and fill in the spaces. However, if you should have a great amount of space left over then you should pack some other things in the box in order to fill it up and not waste the space. For example, you might get a few pots and pans in the carton, too. Following these procedures will help have a damage free move.
