Back to school does not only apply to grade school kids. Moving into new dorms and buying and shipping care packages to your college age kids can be hectic with all of the shipping costs and what not. Staples had made it much easier to make the moving and packing happen for college students with their wide variety of shipping boxes and packing material. Here are just a few tips to make your life easier and keep your sanity when moving and packing stuff, provided by CollegeMagazine.com:
Make a Checklist
Packing for college doesn’t have to be stressful. With the right move-in list, you’ll be living like a king or queen on campus with all your must-have necessities
Get Your Boxes Early
Move in day has organizational disaster written all over it. Don’t let it sneak up on you. Whether you’re schlepping or shipping your room, box it up. Staples even bundles the boxes for you. Start out with an 8 pack of SmoothMove medium sized boxes. Then pick up a wardrobe box to save you the tedium of transferring your entire closet hanger by hanger. For packing ninjas, the Bankers Box SmoothMove Kraft Moving Box doesn’t even need tape—it’s magic.
Get Label Crazy
Your bathroom supplies box and late-night snack box look identical. You think you’ll remember what went where, but you won’t. Cue the labels. And if you’re shipping your boxes, you can label and ship all at once at Staples.
