No, I haven't started "actually" packing just yet. However a few weeks ago we moved Griz from an apartment to his new house... And boy do we do things differently.. A LOT differently...lol

I am one of those people who packs everything neatly in boxes and tapes the tops shut with clear packaging tape, then I label pretty close to everything that is in the box and what roon it goes into when it gets to the new destination..
But I don't write it on the box, I put a piece of the tape on the top and write on it so if the boxes are used again, there is no confusion. The tape has been ripped off and replaced by a new label.

Less work trying to figure out what is in which box and where does that box go the first time instead of going through it then having to move it again.. Especially if movers move everything....usually once.they set it down they are done with it.

I have been in my house for over 20 years now and truthfully I am excited about moving but at the same time.....it's going to take me 6 months to pack everything. Okay, I'm joking...kind of...lol. Just going to have about a million and two boxes.

I also know people who just toss everything in front of them into a box, fold the flaps over and go..No labels, no idea where it goes or what is in it.

So how orderly are you duirng a move? Neat and organized or just grab it and go?
Do you get rid of the things you don't want or need before packing it or wait until you are unpacking an going through things and do it then?

Normally I am a pretty organized and orderly person...everything in it's place and all. Like items with like items. Put it away when you are done with it. You get the idea.

It's pretty much the same way with packing (though I don't think I am as anal *snicker* as you about labeling the boxes). Things that are going to stay together get packed together. Label basic contents and where it belongs.

However, moving when I am not looking forward to it (selling our house and moving because of the divorce), it was much harder to motivate myself to pack let alone do it in an organized manner. So much so, that I forgot to pack half my kitchen (pot, pans, bake ware, knives...the more expensive stuff to replace) and didn't realize it until almost 2 months later (single women don;'t really cook...that's what frozen entrees are for!).

Good luck getting your stuff packed and have a wonderful move!

I am not much on moving... this past time was the Last time.. !!! (I Hope! )
I bought boxes from Lowes..and wrote on the Box...(cause I knew I would not be using the boxes again!) ...where everything goes..
Fairly organized...loading the boxes on the trucks with the room farthest from the main door on the tailgate end of the trucks.
I trashed all unwanted goods when packing....so when all the boxes were loaded... it was only trash/junk left...which I got rid of..after the move was complete..along with cleaning the townhouse I was leaving!
Good Luck to Yall...and Have fun when Moving....
When I was Married..we would always break each room in...as we were moving... it was a tradition!!!
God Bless!!!!

I hate packing and unpacking.

I am one of those that just put's stuff in boxes and doesn't lable them. I have to look through them when I unpack them.
I do put like all of my kitchen stuff in the same boxes, I had a huge computer room at my old house and I put all my stuff from that room in boxes so when I need stuff from them I know where it is.

My problem with this house I just moved into it is smaller than the one I had before. And no room for storage. I got rid of a lot of stuff when I moved and I still have a lot of stuff and no where to put it. So for now it is going in the attic.
I need to go through all the bags and boxes I have in storage and get rid of more crap I don't need..Maybe in the spring and I can have a yard sale
Then I can go to yard sale's and buy other's people's yunk

I am one of those EXTREMELY organized persons, when it comes to moving....

It only involves a few simple steps....

Step 1: Sit down, in a comfortable chait, with your telephone, a pen, and a yellow legal pad.

Step 2: Call the Moving Company and make arrangements for the packers to come, the Moving Van to come, the Unpackers to arrive at new house, Making sure you note the times and dates on your legal pad.

Step 3: On the day the packers arrive, call the moving company to verify arrival date of the unpackers, and call a Taxi.

Step 4: Have Taxi take you to the Airport, where you purchase a round trip to Vegas, with a return date that is 24 hours AFTER unpackers have finished their jobs.

See....simple, no muss, no fuss....I never understood why people hate moving....
