I have only moved once in my life. I moved from my parents house to my house with my husband. Unless you count from the hospital to my parent’s house…
We are going to move. My second move! This will be quite different from moving out of one room as a single girl to a whole house as a married woman. This is a family of five and ten years of accumulation.
There’s one more twist. Most of our possessions will be in storage for several months. Lord willing, no longer than six.
So, I need help! Help! Any moving tips or links to great advice sites would be wonderful. I’m counting on you ladies. I know that Cyndi and Faith have moved quite a bit. I’m not sure about the rest of you [all five], but I’ll take any advice. What should I most avoid? What should I definitely do?
This is where I started:
I have six 18 gallon totes packed full and five shelves left to be packed. I’m packing sheets, sweaters, and blankets around the books to make the boxes not too heavy.
You can’t say to get rid of books. I’ve already whittled it down to these. Two of those shelves are music. I did make a foot high stack of books to get rid of. Are you proud of me? There is another full bookshelf in my room…and there is a library book sale on April 19. I’m so glad for an understanding husband who knows I’d rather get rid of my clothes than my books.
The house needs to be show ready by April 21, 2008.
Hit me with your bestest advice!
