One of the great things about our upcoming move is the timing. We get the keys June 1 (Just eight more days!), but we keep our townhouse until July 31. (By law we have to give 60 days notice to vacate – and it’s 60 days to the term – i.e. end of month).
That means we can take our time. As soon as we knew we had the house, we started packing up stuff we wouldn’t need for a while.
In addition to packing, I’ve also been trying to organize things better BEFORE packing them, so that when we unpack, it will be easier to set things up nice and tidy right from the start.
A while back, I bought Dave a label maker. I decided to snitch it for a bit and can I just say… it’s a life changer!!!
All my fabric drawers got reorganized, tidied and labelled!
I got some nice big totes for my chunks of yardage and backing fabric.
I wish I had bought just one more, so I’ll watch for them to come on sale again.
I also got some smaller containers to for my scraps. I used to have these in varying sizes of cardboard boxes.
This is so much better!
And before I go – we did our final walk-through on the house. We found a few more things to add to our to-do list, but it’s an old house so that’s not surprising. I did want to share some better pics of some of that carpeting.
Two of the bedrooms have this type of carpet. It’s a shame it’s so ugly, because it’s actually in really good condition.
There’s some very frufru wallpaper throughout.
And talk about frufru…
My bathroom mirror has curtains!
