We’re nearing the end of spring, and that means it’s officially time for everyone-and-their-mother-is-moving szn. You can also call it The Great Migraine™ because moving is the pits, no matter how excited you are for your new place.
You already know the drill: Purge your stuff and then bring in the boxes, tape, bubble wrap and a dozen Sharpies. But there are a few things that you probably didn’t consider when you started to think about your move that will actually make your life way less stressful. Still a little stressful, of course. Just, less. I mean, things like QR Code labels exist now for $15. Welcome to the future of moving, it’s fun here.
Whether you’re moving out of your college dorm and into your first big kid home or your lease has run out, here are the best moving hacks under $50 you can find on Amazon that are actually useful.
Um, yes, these are labels with actual QR codes that you can scan and manage from a mobile app. The labels come in four color-coded sticker sheets for a seamless packing situation. There's even a search tool.
Unfortunately, buying moving boxes is an expensive — but very necessary — task, so you want to get good ones. And unless you have a place to store them until the next time you move, they're also super wasteful. Luckily, this set of 10 tape-free moving boxes exists. They're super easy to build and break down and have the sturdiest handles you'll ever use.
Obviously, your entire closet cannot fit in all of your suitcases. Foldable duffels are key to remedying this. First, you can truly stuff them to the brim and fit way more than you would expect. Second, they're useful beyond the move and take up basically zero storage space in your new closet.
While you can buy the special dishware boxes that come with the foam pouches, it's so much cheaper to buy them separately! This set of 60 assorted foam pouches protects your fragile items from kitchenware (obvi) to that one heirloom Christmas ornament you're terrified of breaking.
Your regular trash bags just won't cut it when it comes to moving. These industrial trash bags are great for when you're in the packing zone and tossing everything that does not bring you joy and cannot be donated (read: period-stained underwear). You can also use them as DIY garment bags! Just keep your coats, dresses, etc. on the hangers, stick the hook through the bottom and duct tape it up.
Two years ago, after yet another couple of nights of rioting in the banlieues, twenty retired French generals wrote an open letter to Emmanuel Macron, then about to run for a second term, warning that the divisions between communities and increasing “violence and nihilism” in France would eventually cause a social breakdown, with a risk of “chaos” leading to a “civil war” that would then “require” a military “intervention… in a dangerous mission to protect our civilisational values and safeguard
A father’s last moments protecting his son before he was murdered in the street by a gang armed with machetes and zombie knives has been caught on CCTV. Kelvin Ward, 50, was stabbed after leaving a KFC with his son, who the gang had been trying to kill, on 18 April. The armed gang launched themselves at Mr Ward as they chased him across the street, before he was fatally stabbed.
For much of this year and before 7 October, naval gazers had about four areas to look at. First, the ongoing fight in the Black Sea with the Russian blockade weaponizing hunger despite regular Ukrainian successes there. The Russians were also keeping navies busy in the high north and the North Atlantic.
Call off the search: the worst show of 2023 is here. That is, unless you’re a 13-year-old boy, in which case Obliterated (Netflix) is your dream product. Guns! Naked breasts! A lead character who is a government operative but also looks smokin’ hot in a red bikini! And that’s before we get to the script, in which a foreign baddie plots to nuke Las Vegas. Standing in his way is an elite tactical unit (the best kind) whose members say things like: “We’re supposed to stop the bad guy with the bomb”
How’s Brexit working out? There have been some marginal positives, but in terms of the economy, it’s been mainly downside, and on the issues that really matter to voters – particularly immigration and a better functioning health service with more money behind it – Brexit has so far manifestly failed to deliver.
