Moving (Part 2)

So today we are getting the keys to our new house later today. This is a good thing! We are ready to start moving stuff over to our new house and spend the next couple weeks getting settled.

Except.

We haven't packed one box.

We haven't taken one picture off the wall.

We haven't... well... done much of anything. LOL

In my head though, this will be our easiest move EVER.

Our plan is to move one room at a time, starting with the kids' bedrooms, leaving only their beds and enough clothes here to last a week. Then we'll take their stuff and immediately go set it up in the new house so there are no boxes all over for months. After that's done, we'll move from room to room and start moving everything over that we don't NEED here... of course for now we just have my van and Frank's suburban, so it will have to fit in there. We'll take pictures off our wall here and go hang them up there. THEN when everything else is set up, we'll get a moving truck for the day and move all the furniture and the rest of our stuff and we'll set it up in our already arranged new house.

We're going to be organized. No living out of a million boxes. No searching for things for months. This should work, right?! I'm not going to go crazy right?

Hello??

Anyone??

Sounds like a good plan! Moving across town stinks... well, less than moving long distances. Good luck!

Let me know how that works for you. I think it sounds good in theory! I'm more of a "pack it up, move it over, unpack it and be done with it," kind of person, but I hope this plan works the way you want it to and the move is not too stressful!

Wishing you lots of luck with this plan! We did a move that way once....about 17 miles....and it worked pretty well. Although I must admit there are still boxes in the basement that have remain unpacked for 10 years. Maybe we should sell them as "surprise boxes" for $10 each??? LOL!! Looking forward to pics of your progress!! (((HUGS)))!!!

When we moved into this house almost 3 yrs ago that is exactly how we did it. It worked great! We even painted the kids rooms before moving their stuff in and we bought some new furniture and were able to have it delivered to the new house. It was great! Hope the move goes well...you do plan on posting some pics of the new house, right?

If I was closer I'd be there!
Our Savior is saying these words. Know that I'm here praying!
Revelation 21:5-7 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
