Do you want to learn how to pack without bubble wrap? If you’re moving and packing right now, you probably know that moving supplies can be very expensive. Bubble wrap is no exception. But yet you need something to pad your breakables so they make the move unscathed. Using smart cost-saving techniques and items you already have around the house can ensure your belongings are still protected without having to spend a fortune on wrap.
In addition to cost, there are other reasons why you don’t have to invest in bubble wrap, such as its environmental unfriendliness. Because it’s made of plastic sheets, it’s non-degradable. There are some green bubble wrap options on the market, but they cost even more. If you absolutely need at least some bubble wrap for your move, there are ways to find it cheap or free.
You can ask your friends, neighbors or colleagues if they have any leftover rolls of bubble wrap or even send out a plea on Facebook. You could also visit the nearest large retailer in your town to see if they have used bubble wrap they don’t need. And finally, you can search online for free bubble wrap online at websites like Freecycle and Craigslist.
Here are some common alternative packing materials that you can use instead of bubble wrap, and the best part is, you may already have these in your house.
