How to Pack for your Move in a Weekend
So I have said this many times before, and some of you are witness to this, "it takes three days to pack and three days to unpack." I have done it and proven that this works.
When I lived in Toronto I moved 13 times in 10 years. Granted it was just me and not a family of four, but same concept. Back then, I could do it in a day. What would drive me nuts about packing ahead of schedule is the "what box did I put the (blank) in?" Looking for that item that I packed a month ago, thinking I would no longer need it, but then not finding it urged me to create the 3 by 3 packing. I say pack your self a bag like you are going on holiday for the weekend, make sure you have stocked up on tons of paper, boxes, bubble wrap, etc., buy a bottle of wine and easy food, then just pack. Sorry, don't forget some great packing music. Motown, disco, 80's rock...am I dating myself here. No more one month ahead packing one box at a time, trying to pace things out! It's like pure torture and feels like you are packing for weeks...because you are! I came across this article on houzz.com and it inspired me, and finally proved me right! (gotta love that!)
