Our house has been packed in boxes for the past 8 months as we’ve been trying to move and buy a house for quite some time now. It’s been an overwhelming home buying experience combined with a few other factors. I’ll have a full update sometime this month on where I’ve been and what’s been going on in the past year (which has affected the number of videos I’ve put out). In the meantime, my Color-Coded Moving Legend is now in full effect. T-minus 7 days until we move!

P.S. – In the 8 months these boxes have been sitting, I’ve only needed a couple greeting cards and gift bags from box #55 and a tablecloth from box #31. I haven’t “needed” anything else. And if I did, I’ve made do without it and I’ve been just fine. Putting everything you own in a box will give you a good (and fast!) perspective on the amount of things you own versus need. I’ll be doing another purge once we move to our new home. On another note, numbering your moving boxes and creating an excel spreadsheet with the high-level contents of each box works wonderfully if you know your stuff will be packed for awhile!
