Today is the backwards edition of Works For Me Wednesday, where I ask the question and you give me the tips! Fun!
Today's question: What kind of tips do you have for moving and packing?
We are going to be moving soon. When exactly, or where, I do not know. But moving is inevitable, whether in a month or two or later this year. As far as we know we will be staying in this general area, so the move will most likely be across town and not across the country.
I haven't moved that much in my lifetime and this is the first time I'll be packing up a whole household and moving it from point A to point B. Naturally, I won't be doing all the work myself. I have a capable husband and friends who are sure to help out, but I will be the one organizing and overseeing the move.
I know how to pack boxes and label them specifically instead of having all marked 'Misc.' (That's what my husband's former roommate would do when he moved. ) And I've been decluttering and am having a yard sale this weekend.
Do you seasoned movers have specific systems that you follow when packing? Color-coded stickers... numbered boxes with coordinating lists...throw everything out that you can't fit in the Neon? :-)
Please share! What works for you for packing and moving?
