So you bought this new apartment, or new house that you dreamed of for years. Rented a loft in Soho, or just graduated college and moving to your first rental with some college buddies.  This is the important change that is occurring in your life. Packing and moving there is just a hassle you need to endure with the minimum pain possible. Here are some tips on what not to pack and how to start packing efficiently and how to work less for your upcoming move.

Don’t Over-pack

1. Don’t pack any perishables – When packing your kitchen; dump, eat or give away all of your perishables before you move. Don’t even think of moving cartons of eggs and milk on your long distance move. You will end up with a bunch of broken eggs and spoiled milk before the move is over. Even when you move locally, try not to move anything perishable. Packing these items, (meat, eggs, milk etc.) takes time and effort. If you do decide to move these items locally. Try to pack them in a cooler and move the cooler yourself to your new destination. Your items stand a better chance of staying intact and fresh if you do invest the extra labor in packing and moving them carefully.

2. Expired items – Go over everything you own that has an expiration date – Food, beauty products, spices, batteries etc. Your rule of thumb should be: “If I have not used these items in the last three years, than I will probably not use them in the next three years and I might as well discard these items and not carry them to my new place. Buy new items when you need them. Donate or discard the old expired ones.

3. Dangerous items – Don’t pack anything that might be considered dangerous by law enforcement or the public at large. Don’t pack fire crackers or any other kind of explosives. if you do own dangerous items and live in new York city than call 311 and ask for instructions on how to dispose of these items safely.  If you live outside of NYC, you can check the EPA website for the location of the nearest environmental protection agency office and call them for instructions on how to dispose of your items. Examples of dangerous materials are:

  • Fertilizer
  • paint
  • Chemicals
  • Draino
  • Fire crackers
  • Different kinds of acid

For a complete list of items check the Transportaion Security Administration website

4. Halloween costumes – Most people tend to keep their old Halloween costumes, even though they buy a new costume every year. Donate the old costumes and promise yourself that you will get an even cooler costume the coming Halloween.

5. Important documents – Any document that has a sentimental, financial or other value should not be packed with the rest of your belongings. These items are too valuable and you should move them yourself to your new home. Try to move them a head of time if possible, so these boxes will not get mixed up with the boxes the movers will be bringing on the move day. Store them ahead of time in an empty cupboard or another safe location in your new place and unpack them yourself after the move.

Don’t pack your important papers. Move them yourself!


6.Duplicate items – Nobody knows how many copies of the Muppet babies DVD they have, or how many copies of “Europe on $30 a day” they have till they start sorting and packing their belongings. If you have ten Gap white shirts with the breast pocket, than you should probably give some away, or sell them in a garage sale before you move. Duplicate items are probably unnecessary and go unused in your new home just as they are unused in your current one.

7. Old and unused electronic gadgets – Do you still own a Chumby? Even years after the company that sold the small Linux gadget went out of service and shut down the service? Do you still have a palm pilot? a Nokia analog phone? an electronic picture frame that you never connected to your PC? Ten old phone chargers that have no phones to charge anymore? If so, than this is the time to get rid of them all. If you live in New York City you can check out the city’s e-Recycling website for instructions on  how to dispose of your electronic items in an environmentally responsible way.

8. Books you already read and old magazines – This sounds like an obvious thing to do. But, it will lighten your load considerably if you will be diligent and get rid of books you already read and magazines that just sit on your shelves accumulating dust. Paper is heavy and every book you leave behind is one less book you will need to pack, carry and unpack in your new home. Think of buying a kindle, or a nook…..
