Keep Drawers and Cabinets Closed While Moving Furniture
Jenny Morrill, co-founder and CMO of Move Loot (an online, full-service marketplace for buying and selling used furniture), says plastic wrap can come in handy while moving and packing.

Try It: Morrill says the best strategy is to anchor the plastic wrap first before wrapping. "You can tie one end around the leg of a dresser, and then wrap around the body of the dresser from there until you pass back over the initial spot."

Why It Works: Drawers and cabinets can get damaged or cause injury when they swing open during transit. The plastic wrap keeps them held shut and adds an extra layer of protection for the furniture.
