A Guide on How NOT to Pack Boxes

Packing boxes may seem like a straightforward task, but for some, it becomes an art form – an art form in chaos.

Whether you're moving to a new home or sending packages, there are plenty of ways to make the process more complicated than it needs to be.

We'll explore the unconventional world of packing gone wrong and A Guide on How NOT to Pack Boxes.

Packing Boxes


Procrastination Station:

The first cardinal sin of packing is leaving everything to the last minute. Procrastination can turn a simple packing task into a frenzied, chaotic experience. To master the art of disorganization, make sure to wait until the very last moment to start packing. Bonus points if you throw random items into boxes without any rhyme or reason.

Forget About Labels:

Labels are for the organized, not for those who want to embrace the chaos. Skip labeling your boxes, and instead, play a guessing game when you arrive at your new destination. It's like a surprise party every time you open a box! Who needs to know where the essentials are anyway?

Mix and Mingle:

Create a jigsaw puzzle of confusion by combining items from different rooms into the same box. Mix kitchen utensils with bathroom supplies and throw in some clothes for good measure. Unpacking will feel like a treasure hunt through the unknown.

Reject the Bubble Wrap:

Bubble wrap is for the cautious packer who wants their items to arrive in one piece. If you're a rebel, skip the bubble wrap and toss your fragile items into boxes with the same nonchalance you'd use for a pair of socks. Embrace the thrill of uncertainty as you unpack shards of what used to be your favorite mug.

Ditch the Packing Supplies:

Who needs packing peanuts, bubble wrap, and tape? Opt for a more eco-friendly, minimalist approach by refusing to use any packing supplies. Allow your items to jostle around freely during transit, experiencing the journey just as you are. Broken dishes and torn clothing add character, right?

Heavy on the Light, Light on the Heavy:

Challenge yourself by packing heavy items in the flimsiest boxes you can find and vice versa. This will keep you on your toes, quite literally, as you navigate the delicate balance between overestimating and underestimating the strength of your boxes.


Packing boxes may seem like a mundane task, but for those who want to embrace the chaos, there are countless ways to make it an adventure.

By procrastinating, avoiding labels, mixing and mingling, rejecting packing supplies, and challenging the laws of physics with your box choices, you can truly master the art of not packing boxes.

Just remember, the journey is just as important as the destination, even if some of your belongings don't quite make it in one piece.

Happy packing!
