Shipping Personal Effects - German word to write on package?

I'm a loser. Sorry to post this. No, I couldn't find the answer.

The customs people told me that I need to write some magical German word on packages being shipped as part of our move.

I of course don't remember the magical word that means "used personal effects as part of a move" or something like that.

Does anyone know the secret password?

Thanks, and please forgive me
