1. Do not pack the calendar that holds every piece of information that your family of six needs to function.
2. Try to keep same size sheets together.
3. Reassemble the fridge before purchasing several hundred dollars worth of groceries. Consider the possibility that your spouse will discover that the hinges are missing while you are purchasing said groceries. If you fail to follow this suggestion, use packing tape to tape the doors to the fridge while you order new hinges.
