3. Defrost Your Refrigerator
Plan ahead! Don’t forget to defrost, towel dry, and clean your refrigerator 24-48 hours before moving day. This will help prevent a stinky, wet mess.
If your refrigerator will be sitting for a while, it’s important to clean it REALLY well. Otherwise all of the little food particles that are left behind start to stink. It will be a nice surprise for you when you go to open it up at the new house. 🙂
Also, if you’re trying to save space for a long distance move, consider utilizing the empty space in your fridge for light weight items, and don’t forget to pad the handles and the face of the fridge really well because they dent very easily.

4. Masking Tape On Mirrors
Use masking tape to place a large X on your mirrors and glass frames. It won’t prevent it from breaking, but it will absorb shock and keep the glass in the frame in the case that it is dropped or shuffled in the moving truck.

5. Take A Photo of Your Cords
Before you disconnect them to be boxed up, take a quick snapshot of the cords on the back of your television and other electronics so that you can remember where they all go! My husband would probably think this was silly, but I’m cord impaired. I’d rather never watch TV again than try to actually hook it up.
