At AAA Movers, there's no size move we can't handle. From prompt moving quotes to extended weekend hours and decluttering services, we help families throughout the state of Minnesota streamline their next move with added convenience and what we like to call our AAA Advantage 

Whether you've already reached out to our team to plan the logistics of your move, or you're looking to get a jump start on packing, our goal is to make the moving process simple and customized to your needs. To help you get started, we wanted to provide you with a few quick tips on tackling one of the hardest rooms to pack in a home, the bathroom.  

Why is this area of the home such a hassle to pack and prepare for a move? Like your kitchen, your bathroom is one of the most commonly used spaces of the home. Your daily routine often begins and ends with this key area, so without a plan in place, you risk disrupting your normal schedule, causing other members of the family to become frustrated, or leaving this room unpacked until the very last minute, causing unnecessary stress. 

How to Pack Your Bathroom for a Move 

Step 1: Your first thing people often dispute over is what to pack first in your bathroom. Though you could start at a certain area of the bathroom (i.e. medicine cabinet) and work your way down, you might benefit from first categorizing the items you use on a daily basis and separating them from other items you deem "non-essential." 

Let's pretend you're staying at a friend's place for the next 2-3 days. What are the essential items you might store in a traveling case? Likely, you'll pack your dental tools (e.g. toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, mouthwash, etc.) followed by other personal hygiene gear (e.g. hairbrush, deodorant, bodywash, shampoo, etc.)  

Pro Bathroom Packing Tip

You might find it easier to visit your local grocery store's travel section to pick up these items in smaller, to-go sizes. This way you can pack up your regular hygiene items a few days early and use your travel gear until you arrive at your new home.   

Step 2: A popular question we get asked by homeowners and renters is how to pack cleaning supplies. This is an important part of your move, and there are several ways you can perform this step to avoid hazardous chemicals from leaking onto your belongings.  

Pro Bathroom Packing Tip

Remember to always keep all cleaning supplies boxed together. Don't mix and match bottles that contain bleach with items you use on your mouth, eyes, or skin. 

Step 3: Speaking of skin, another question we get asked from customers is how to pack makeup before a move. This is another area of packing you'll want to be careful with, as the majority of makeups are liquid base and contain ingredients that can be harmful if ingested or can stain other items if they become damaged. 

Pro Bathroom Packing Tip

Remember to store your makeup items the same way you would if you were traveling by plane. Nothing is worse than arriving at your destination, only to discover that your makeup bag has leaked, and now liquid foundation and perfume is all over your clothes and belongings.
