Pack the items into packaging units such as boxes and storage containers. When items are packed together in boxes or storage containers, several of them will fit in one container. Wrap delicate items like glass-made items, kitchen utensils, framed pictures, etc. Avoid wrappers with ink as the ink will absorb moisture and destroy the packed items. When arranging the packaged boxes, avoid placing the heavy ones on top of the ones with light items, or delicate ones to avoid destroying them.

When detaching the furniture, mark each furniture with its other parts to avoid confusion while assembling them back. Leave the couch or sofas without pillows so as to save space; the pillows can be put together in storage containers.
Hooks hanged on the walls can hold items placed in bag, but of light-weight. A rope running from wall to wall can be used to hold items that do not need to be packed in storage containers or boxes.
