Happy Wednesday! My hints for today have to do with packing and moving. We are packing up our apartment and moving to our new home next month. While this is a very exciting time, it’s also an extremely busy time. This may surprise you – but I want to pack in an organized way so we start fresh and organized at our new home. I have been tempted to buy all those fancy moving organizational stickers and items from The Container Store and Staples. But I have stopped myself! Don’t spend money on that! I say to myself – think of all the other things you will want to buy when you get to your new home!
HHH#1 – DIY organize when moving – save the money for stuff for your new house that you won’t be throwing out once you unpack!
Here are the signs I have made right here on my computer. I had tons of color paper left over from last summer’s sale when we sold our family home. We are using them on every box we pack. My husband and I are committed to packing a few boxes everyday. We started on Sunday and we are doing pretty well!
HHH#1 – PURGE, PURGE, PURGE when moving! If you haven’t seen it/ moved it/ used it/ wore it/ in awhile – then you can live without it. Don’t take it with you to collect dust at your new place!
We have a box for all the stuff we aren’t taking with us … it’s already pretty full and we just got started! Bare with me — there is going to be a lot of moving / packing talk on My Color Coded Life this next month. Then on to the fun stuff – remodeling!! Have a great Wednesday – the weekend is almost here. Thanks for reading.
