Paper or plastic? When you’re moving, this can be a tougher decision than at the grocery store. Cardboard boxes are stackable and budget-friendly, but plastic bins are (somewhat) weatherproof and protect against damage in transit.
Plus, you can hang onto your bins for long-term storage once you’ve arrived and unpacked. Cardboard boxes are less likely to survive a trip in your moving truck or container.
If you’re using storage bins for any or all of your packing, choosing the right type matters—and you may need different bins for your clothes than for your Christmas decorations. Use this guide to our top specialty storage tote picks to find the best bins for your move.
