14. Use towels to stuff boxes.
Packing is an art, and just like any art, it can take a lot of practice. It can be a challenge to fit items perfectly in to moving boxes and sometimes it can be nearly impossible! Bekins recommends though to not have any empty space in your box and the box also shouldn’t be more than 30 pounds, so what are you to do?
Stuff all the remaining space in your boxes with either towels or light linens.
You’re going to have to pack all of your towels and linens anyway, so they might as well serve some sort of purpose during a move. Packing with towels, cloth napkins, table cloths, curtains, and other light linens is an efficient way to ensure that the boxes are full. Towels and linens are also light, so you won’t be straining your back carrying these boxes out of your house even if they are completely full.
