They'll keep your clothes clean and protected, and you can suck the air out of them so it saves you space! Do not throw shoes in a carton; it's always better to pack them in boxes.
If you have the original shoe box and dust bag, that's the way to go. If you don't have the shoe box, just use another similarly sized smaller box, then you can just stack them up inside a carton.
Pro tip: Always wrap a rubber band around the box or tape it. Those shoe boxes above? They won't be full from one pair of shoes. Don't waste space formally packing socks and underwear. Bonus — if you have anything breakable, they act as a good cushion. If you have a nightstand or dresser with clothing in it, you can usually just leave it as it is. The movers will wrap tape around it to make sure the drawers don't come out, and when you get to your destination, you won't even have to unpack those clothes! If you have any makeup or beauty products that are in glass bottles, you absolutely must wrap them in saran wrap or bubble wrap before placing them in a smaller box to go inside a carton.
Don't just throw them all inside your beauty bag and call it a day — I learned this the hard way when a small bottle of tea tree oil cracked and spilled all over my makeup.

If furniture subscriptions might help consumers delay a purchase decision that feels too permanent to handle, Rent the Runway might help shoppers stop making purchases that have gotten too easy. Most individual pieces are worn only a handful of times before being discarded, usually into landfills.
At the same time, supercheap clothing is more omnipresent than ever, which can make it seem like a smart, budget-conscious choice for refreshing a seasonal wardrobe or flexing on Instagram. In theory, a wardrobe subscription gives people access to the variety that modern life demands, in addition to the kind of high-end clothing that it would be impossible for most people to wear every day.
But along with the advantages of variety or quality comes a downside. Whether or not a subscription to breakfast smoothies or Reformation dresses or mattresses makes sense depends on individual consumer circumstances, which Dholakia says people are bad at evaluating on their own. Consumers also seem to be bad at estimating how much they spend on subscriptions. Dholakia says businesses profit from this disregard.
He also urges consumers to look carefully at what companies require to cancel service.
