Packing it......

Yes, the packing has begun in a big way, at our place, ready for our move in......4 weeks time.
Oh, My, Goodness!!!
In one way, it cannot come quick enough.
In another way, there is so much to be done before we do move.
I cleaned out our linen cupboard last week. As I was doing it, I said to myself, "why on earth do we have so much CRAP?"......more than half went to the Salvo's.
Well, people do keep telling me to be ruthless!!!!

I also did the kitchen cupboards, my wardrobe, the bookcase, the lounge room and some of the boy's room.

I think will leave the office/sewing room until last.....or perhaps I could clean it out now and sneakily start taking stuff up to my new designated sewing room and move in before "moving in"..........Mmmm, I think that sounds like a better idea.

Moving isn't fun. Done enough to know Yes be ruthless! Surprising how much stuff we actually don't need. And focus on the end point, lovely big sewing space, bliss!

O do be ruthless. Definitely. But if there is anything we might want please send it our way. LOL (only kidding) If you can de-clutter now you will have so much less to put away in the new house. Cherrie

I was doing this same time last year too (shudders remembering). The best part is setting up your new creative space - enjoy & hang in there sweetie.

Yep I am one of those ruthless people when it come to getting rid of stuff...I use the 12 month rule, if it hasn't been used in the last 12 months toss it...we not everything.
Good luck with it all.

How easily we collect stuff! I know how you feel. I'm in process of moving my craft room and sorting out the loft, it is very scary the amount of stuff I have! When I moved here a little van did the job, now I would need a full blown fleet ;o) Good luck with the moving, you'll be so happy when you get there x

Oh packing is the worst I remember doing it and the nightmares. I decided if I hadn't used something in the last 2 years it went to the Salvos and it got rid of alot of crap. Have fun.......lol.
