Megan here. As you probably know, we are in the process of purchasing a condo and close September 14. Being the high-strung, type A person I am, I've been packing for a couple of weeks. Having moved about a million times, I thought I finally had it figured out, but this recent move isn't without its problems. First, we're trying to be thrifty with this move, so we've been collecting boxes from our respective workplaces for a couple of weeks as well as stealing them from the new neighbors who just moved in across the hall. Sounds good, right? Wrong - the boxes are all weird sizes and some of them just hold one item. Initially I had told our movers we would only have about 40 boxes for them to move, but seeing as how we have that many packed already, it's looking as if I will be calling and changing that number. Also, because I am so anal, I've managed to pack quite a lot of stuff, stuff that we still actually NEED, like mixing bowls and cookie sheets. I'm not about to unpack them (1) because I'm not sure where they are in the pile of boxes in our office, and (2) I'm not so sure our second-hand boxes could take the abuse of being opened again. So, no cookies for us until we move. I'm sure there will be a few more posts about this move as it progresses, but as with anything we do, this adventure doesn't seem like it will be without its annoying little complications. Wish us luck!
