Here’s a quick check-in with some bad news (and some good news). Will you be joining me on the new journey in the new home? I hope so! More updates, packing videos, and relocation videos to come soon as we get closer to our move date. And of course, all new videos to come soon (since I have to start from scratch all over again!!). Anyone else moving anytime soon?

Hi guys. It’s Alejandra. And I have some good news to share and some bad news to share. So should I give you the good news or the bad news first? I think I’ll do the bad news first. Bad news is we are moving which means that we have to tear down all of the organizational systems that are in this house. So all the systems you’ve seen inside my house have got to go because well, we’ve got to pack them and we’ve got to move them.

And you know that when we move houses, not everything is going to transfer over, not all of your organizational systems are going to transfer over nicely because the space is different, the architecture is different, the walls are different, the size of each room is different, and so you got to start over. So I am so sad to be leaving this house. So yeah, so bad news is we’re moving and I have a lot of work ahead of me because I have to pack everything up and set it all back up again.

So the good news – and that’s the good news. The good news is that I have to redo all of my systems. So I have to get creative in the spaces that I was once creative in. Yeah, get creative again in a new house and set everything back up. And good news for you because that means I have to do all these videos all over again on how to organize every single thing that you’ve seen inside my house.

So that is coming up. We are moving very soon in a few weeks. So there is going to be some packing videos coming. I have some cool tricks on the way I pack so I’m definitely going to record those. And yeah, packing, unpacking, setting up, and just doing my house all over again.

I think what I’m most excited about in the new house is that it has a garage which means I can do a garage organizing video and I could do my car video. Everyone has been asking for a car organizing video and it has been a little tough to do because our car is in a public underground parking lot in our building. So I can do a car video. I can do a garage video. I can do a – what else? We have a backyard. I don’t know if we can do a backyard video but maybe. Right now, we don’t have a backyard.

What else? There’s a really good pantry. There’s a reach-in pantry with like – not like an L-shape to it but like a wall that covers some of the shelving. So I can get creative in that space. What else is there? Oh, there is a guest room. So I can do a guest room organizing video. I can do – which by the way, I do something cool in the guest room. I put together like a welcome kit for all the guests. I can do that on video. What else? Well, there’s a basement. I can do a basement video. But the basement is just going to be the home office. So I’ll just do like a home office organizing video, which I can do now because I have a home office.

But yeah, everything else is pretty much the same. But I’m just excited to just get creative again and just come up with fresh new ideas because that’s what I love to do. I love getting creative.

And that’s everything I have to say. We’re moving and you guys are going to come along in the journey and join us in our new home. So I will see you guys soon. Bye!
