The 19th of September is scheduled to be moving day. The day we’ll be en route to Maine in a big moving truck and a car. One of our neighbors is planning on making the tirp with us, so we’re hoping to hit the Common Ground Fair on Friday and maybe Saturday.
I have no desire deal with the stress of living in a house full of boxes any longer that I have to, so our plan is to spend the 17th & 18th packing the things we use every day. That should be more than enough because we don’t have a ton of stuff. Most of the items we owned are use fairly frequently and can’t be packed up now.
There are, however, a multitude of gardening and preserving items that can be packed away. All of my terra cotta pots from the garage, the basement seed starting area, any of the canning jars I don’t plan on filling this summer. I’ve been slowly packing it all into boxes, a few each day. Whenever I start to feel a little stressed out, I pack a box or two.
I’ve had my share of moving experiences. Growing up we moved almost every other year, from one country to another. During the first four years Mr Chiots and I were married we moved four times until settling here. Thankfully it’s been 10 years since our last move and hopefully we won’t ever need to move again after this one. I’ll certainly be glad when it’s all over.
Any great tips for packing/moving?Filed under Miscellaneous | Comments (19)
