Things you can’t have enough of while packing:

  • Ziploc bags, sandwich-sized and gallon-sized, to pack all the loose crap in;
  • small boxes, to prevent yourself from packing too much in a single box;
  • cable ties and velcro wraps, to hold together pretty much anything;
  • bubble wrap, to protect pictures, mirrors, and electronics;
  • plastic milk crates, to carry things like plants and breakables to the truck;
  • air conditioning;
  • friends.

You’re still packing? Here’s my #1 tip: do not pack boxes heavier than you want to lift.

Speaking of which, are you in need of any help with the moving in and whatnot? Barring some sort of late-breaking miracle on the employment front, I should probably be free if you need a hand.
