The kitchen is often the most difficult room to pack. There are a lot of items. And a lot of those are fragile and need special protection. Others are usually oddly shaped and difficult to pack. But, even once you get the hang on packing your kitchenware, you still need to think about packing your pantry. Do you throw out the food? What do you bring with you? Is it worth it? Those are just some of the questions that you are asking yourself. 

Timing is important when packing your pantry for relocation

One of the first questions that you ask yourself is when is the proper time for packing your pantry. And the answer to this question depends on many factors. But, in general, you should start seriously thinking about packing your pantry a week before your move. First, decide what you will be bringing with you. And then think about how to pack everything. But, make sure everything is properly packed before your residential movers Brooklyn arrive. Because most of the items in your pantry will need to be properly sealed. And you won’t have time to do it once your movers arrive. So, make sure that everything is packed the night before.

Decide what you will be bringing with you before packing your pantry

As the moving day draws closer you need to start actively thinking about the food in your fridge and pantry. And you need to decide which items you will be bringing with you, and which are better off going to the trash. The answer to that question depends on the type of relocation. As much as you try to keep your pantry items from spoiling, sitting in the back of a truck for a long time will ruin most foods. When moving locally, you can keep most of your pantry items. But, when moving long-distance the amount of time needed for your relocation will make most foods and some drinks unusable. 

What to do with the food you aren’t bringing with you?

There are many ways in which you can dispose of food that you are not bringing with you. The first, obvious one is to throw it away. But, you should try and minimize the amount of food that you are throwing away. A much better option is to donate everything that is unopened and hasn’t expired. Bare in mind that you might have to pack your home in a hurry. So, make sure you write down expiration dates well in advance. That way you can quickly separate what you’ll use and what should be donated.

Properly packing your pantry is very important

Once you have separated the items you’ll be bringing with you, it’s time to pack everything. And properly packing food is very important. Depending on the type of your move, your cargo might have to go through storage units Brooklyn and be on the road for a long time. One broken jar can ruin a lot of items. And make your whole cargo very smelly. So, make sure that packing your pantry is done carefully and properly.
