There is so much to be accomplished every day before the big move. I feel like I’m my own drill sergeant!
The huge decision that must be accomplished in the next few days is deciding the size and quantity of ‘containers’ to order for our stuff.
As many of you know (and have been the recipients of), we are getting rid of almost everything we own. Our plan is to not have a huge amount of stuff drag us down. We are taking our clothing, our dearest books, photo albums, a few precious art pieces, some family heirlooms, and I’m limiting myself to just a FEW clocks!
After much research on international moves, I’ve decided to go the ‘pack it yourself’ route and am using a shipping service called UPakWeShip, http://upakweship.com/.
I’m finding it tricky to estimate the cubic feet we’ll need for all our stuff. I’ve localized our things on one side of the garage, but have yet to start packing because I want to have the best combination of box sizes to maximize the interior space. Kind of like a Rubik’s Cube. Ugh. THIS I can procrastinate with…because it’s hard…ouch!
More on the actual success of this system when the time comes…
