    One thing that people always mistake is that they have to fold the clothes properly to cover less space. That is actually wrong – when you roll them they take much less space, and you can fill a box with much more pieces of clothing than if you fold and place them inside. Also, this is a good method to use if you are moving with bags instead of boxes.
    Use clothes as bags
    Some clothes can be very useful in more ways than one. If you have old pieces of clothing which you rarely or never use and they can serve as a container, stuff them with other clothes and use them as bags. That means less money and time spent on packing supplies and materials. You have had no idea how useful a big old apron can be until now!
