When it comes to moving, lists and inventory are essential tools! Another week into the moving progress and we’ve got over 24 boxes packed! We did a little calculation and determined that if we pack 4 boxes a day on average (6 days a week) then we will have over 90 boxes packed in the next few weeks. When we moved here 6 years ago we had over 90 boxes, my goal is to have less this time!
I prefer to pack a little bit at a time rather than try to cram it all into the last week or so.
With this strategy like break down packing into categories so this week I’ll be packing linens, china, un necessary kitchen items, some home accessories and some clothing.
Here’s how I go about creating Moving, Lists and Inventory
- Each box is numbered and assigned a code according to size (A, B, C) then
- I list a short inventory of the contents making special note of valuable (sentimental or monetary) items.
With this system, you will have a very good idea of what’s in each box, where it goes and BONUS, this inventory can serve insurance purposes if needed.
Now for the exciting news, fingers crossed we very well might have someone to rent our house!! We will know for sure soon but it looks promising and this will allow us to determine our exact date of departure. I’ve been secretly hoping for a specific date and it seems like things might just be pointing in that direction.
