Clean your belonging before storing
Belongings and clothing can appear to be clean, so it seems like they can just be packed up. This is not the case. You should wash anything that is going to be stored before packing them. Ensuring the items are clean before storage reduces the likelihood of pests or dust form ruining them. Storing wet, dirty, or soiled items can lead to mold and/or unpleasant smells forming.

Elevate your items and use plastic buckets
Keeping your items off the floor using shelves or pallets can protect boxes and items from getting ruined by pests or spills. Items on the floor are more execcable to pests. Plastic buckets can seal your items and make it harder for items to be damaged.
