Having moved countless times and lived in 5-6 states, I've used this tips many times! I bought a new outdoor garbage can with lid and 2 wheels. When I moved, I put a contractor's garbage bag inside, filled the can with canned goods and boxed groceries. It was very easy to move, rather than using big boxes full of food! Plus I used the new can at my new home! Also, I filled suitcases with sheets and blankets, as they can be bulky and heavy in boxes too!

you can also use them to store your holiday decorations in:)
Great idea!! I doubt if I will ever move again, but will pass this on to others I know of that are moving.

Very good idea. I store out of season clothes in my luggage but I've never thought of putting things like you mentioned in a garbage can. I don't plan on moving any time soon but the garbage can with wheels sounds like a good idea for storage in my garage.
