10 boxes, 1 tape + 15 metres of bubble-wrap

20-25 boxes, 2 tape, 1/3 bale of packing paper, 75 mtrs bubble-wra

As a rule of thumb, it is better to have about 50% of your boxes in a medium size and 25% larger and 25% smaller. However, lots of books may need more of the smaller sizes. You may also wish to consider a small number of extra-large boxes for pillows, duvets and cushions etc. – especially in larger homes.

For hanging clothes, some people use wardrobe boxes – others manage to pack without them. They are 18” (38cm) wide. So if you measure the length of rails of hanging clothes in your closet you can estimate how many of these boxes you may need. They might save you having to iron your clothes after your removal!
