On The Move

Star Bunny Studio 2012

Okay, I have yet to find someone who actually enjoys the moving process. 
However it can be made less painful with a little organization and planning. 

Moving offers an opportunity to simplify and pare down. Donate those infrequently utilized items that have collected in your home. My rule is if the item has not been used in eight or more months, it will not be missed. 

Color code each room, and mark boxes with coordinating stickers. This will provide identification and help to easily organize your items once in the new space.

Be mindful to pack delicate items with care and extra wrapping. Keep in mind boxes are often rattled and sometimes dropped in the moving process.

Take time to pre-pack a box of household and personal necessities for the first day in the new space. Include a shower curtain, towels, toilet paper, sleeping bags, pillows, paper towels, snacks, coffee, coffeepot, as well as toiletries, and any medications. A small tool kit, and some basic cleaning supplies will also come in handy. 

With these tips in mind I will be getting back to the moving game. 
Moving or not, I hope you have a wonderful and well organized day!
