DIY Furniture Moving Sliders {Cheap Organizing Tricks}

DIY Furniture Sliders at ASlobComesClean

Sometimes . . . decluttering/organizing requires furniture-moving.

Sometimes . . . the motivation to move furniture hits when big, strong (handsome and hairy) men aren’t available to help.

Everytime . . . motivation related to decluttering/organizing must not be stifled.  It’s just too elusive.

When I need to move furniture, I place glossy gift-bags under the feet of the furniture to be moved.  Occasionally, a certain bag won’t work for some reason, but I always have plenty.

The slipperiness of the bags helps the furniture slide across the floor more easily. I’m sure that the real furniture-sliding-thingamabobs work better, but I’m pretty sure I had some at one point, but could never find them when I needed them.


Want decluttering ideas/examples? I’ve got tons of ’em.




  1. 1

    Can’t even count the amount of times I’ve used random items around the house to move furniture!

  2. 2

    I’ve used small rugs, although now I’ve donated all my small rugs… Thanks for the tip.

  3. 3

    Scraps of thick fabric (think wool, felt) might work as well. Or old blankets. ^^

  4. 4

    I’ve used cardboard & pieces of cereal boxes before. 🙂 Too bad we couldn’t get Cabana Boys to hang out & be at our beck & call to move furniture… dang… To only be rich & famous *sigh*

  5. 5

    great tip! I’ve used paper plates in a pinch, works really well on carpet; some wood floors—not so much

  6. 6

    Old washcloths or towels are my moving aids of choice! Does this mean the gameroom is changing? Could we get four pictures next time? Please? One from each corner looking into its opposite? I’d love to get a better sense of your space.

    I have some of the furniture things & know where there are!! wow! one of the few things I can say that of, however…..

  9. 9

    I’ve used old laminated place mats. works great on any flooring.

  10. 10

    Great idea!

    Furniture Sliders have been designed to work with all kind of flooring and hence you can use them with confidence just in case you were wondering if they were suitable for your flooring type.

  12. 12

    I have hardwood floors and pot holders work great!! Lol

  13. 14

    My version of this is baking sheets! Of course they have to be washed afterwards, but since this situation doesn’t arise often, it’s ok with me. Since they’re rigid, they work well on carpet as well as hard flooring.
