    These tips were so useful to me. I recently moved from
    Virginia to San Antonio Texas. I did not have a clue "How To Move", but after reading this article the tips were so useful. Thanks

    Best moving tip ever... Use a zip-tie to connect and secure hangers right in the closet, then drop into a heavy duty pull tie trash bag. You can put a sticker or label on the bag if you wish to identify whose bedroom they belong in.

    When you get where you're going, hang the bag up in the closet, untie the trash bag and save for your unpacking trash and cut the zip-tie. Your closet is put away, still organized and still on hangers.

    We will be moving from Minnesota back to North Carolina with 12-18 months. I never thought about zip ties. I can start sorting seasonal, formal, etc and have them tied and ready to go! Thanks for the tips!

    I have used this method and loved it! Made it so much easier to find the clothes we needed!
