Do you remember the last time you moved? Maybe you’ve blocked it from memory, or decided that you are simply not going to move (ever again!) because it was just so miserable.
We get it. Truly. The first time we moved, it was a DISASTER. The truck was way too big. We threw everything in garbage bags because we ran out of boxes, and we basically just tossed everything into our new apartment because we had to hurry and get the truck rental returned. (Eric and I laugh about that to this day…)
But we’ve come a long way.
In today’s podcast, our 17-year-old daughter, Alia, and I share how our family unpacked and got settled into our new home in just six weeks (in the middle of working, summer camps for the kids, and all kinds of craziness), and it’s not because moving comes “naturally” to us. It’s because we had a system in place that you can absolutely replicate.
(Even if you’re not moving right now, this podcast can help you see how a huge project can become totally doable when the family works together!)
Enjoy today’s episode! And if you’d like to see a few photos of the packing process…
This is how we labeled each box–with a letter and number that corresponded to the appropriate part of the house taped like a stamp to the top right-hand corner of each box, and then a simple piece of painter’s tape in the middle explaining what was inside each box.
