Time To Pack and Move On



You guys, a couple of weeks ago we went on our last hunt for a new place. We found it and last week we finally got approved. It took a while for them to verify some information {I almost thought our current landlord refused to give out information so we would be stuck in this place forever; I was wrong of course}. So freaking excited. We are ready to pack, move, and start living life in a better area and place. It is definitely time. We are so ready!! *I secretly started packing thinking it will bring luck - I was right!

We will be moving in one month. It sounds like so far away but it is not. What we are mostly focusing on is to bring everything over we already have. From then on, we will figure out what needs to be purchased or given away. I know for a fact we need a dining table, and can finally purchase a patio set so we can in fact enjoy sitting outside every single day. I am also hoping we find our current sofa doesn't fit in {size wise it does but feel/look wise it may not} and that we will look into saving up and buying a new one.

The new place will be way bigger, and as far as we could tell quieter. We need some quiet time. I don't like the constant sirens going off every five minutes. Yes, if you live in a city that is bearable. We are not living downtown though. Our windows are single paned and so, guess what, it not only is loud, it is also either very cold or hot. So over this place. I hate it. Needless to say and I am repeating myself...we are ready and it is time!!!

We will get help from my favorite person's parents, as well as two classmates and a coworker of his. If you have any tips on how to pack or organize or what not...fill me in. Any tip and idea is welcome. I have a small list on what to do before the big move {inform tv/internet company, set up new accounts for water, gas, electricity and cancel old ones, inform bank, DMV, immigration, and post office to redirect mail accordingly}, but other than that I am kind of lost. Pinterest helps, too. I also learned from my last move that the more you have done ahead of time, the easier and faster the move will be. Plus, labeling your boxes on the side rather than on top is a must. 

Again, if you know of anything we should think of, let me know.

oh good luck with the move! I moved every few years until I was in high school because my dad was in the Army, but my hubs and I are still in the same house we bought together nearly 20 years now!

Good luck with the move! My only advice is to get rid of or donate as much as you can ahead of the move. Less to pack that way!!

About time!! Woohoo! Great news! Four weeks is going to FLY by and before you know it you'll be unpacking!!

YAY! Congratulations! My tip for moving is: pack each room together. Don't pack all the books together, no. Pack the books from the living WITH the living room stuff. Pack the photos from your bedroom with the bedroom stuff. It won't seem to make logical sense when you're putting stuff into boxes, but I assure you when you go to unpack, it's so much easier having all the things for that room IN THAT room :)

Good luck on the move! It sucks but just know that it's all worth it in the end. I have no tips for you... I failed miserably every time we had to move. Just make sure a bag of chocolate is readily available to help with stress. :)

Yay! Congrats on the new place!!

Congrats on the new house.
I can so relate to the sirens thing. I live near a hospital and our "quiete" road is faster to get to the hospital than the big 2 lane one.... grrr.

And for the tips:
I would lable the boxes at least on 2 side because the might be pushed to a wall and than what - don't see what is in them. I also figured it is goo to actally put the boxes in the middle of the room kinda like an island. Hope that helps.
