We have to give three weeks notice on this place and I am certainly not doing that yet. That's just asking for stress! The last thing I need is to have to be out of here with nowhere to go! So I figure if we get the rent here a few weeks ahead, when the time comes to pay for a new place we won't be paying double. I hope.
The last time we moved was because the owners sold and the buyers wanted to occupy. We were down to literally the last few days before we had to vacate. We still didn't have anywhere to go and we had a 4 week old baby. That was such a stressful time for me. I think that's a part of the reason that I'm so reluctant to pack this place! Add that to the fact that I'm here on my own with two little girls! So when hubby was home on the weekend, I was very happy with what I got achieved. I had intended to leave Emily's room until last, but I just got in there and ended up packing 4 or 5 boxes of just toys! Let me tell you, the room feels less cluttered now. I may not even unpack those boxes in the new place ha ha!
It's really hard to find the motivation to pack when there's no one here to talk to about what to do next or how many boxes will fit in this load. Hubby wants me to pack at least two boxes a day. I'm really going to try, but I just look at this place and feel like I'm drowning in STUFF!
What tips do you have for packing a house that you still need to live in for a little while?
