Blue tape works almost like magic. It indicates the destination of filled boxes!
All boxes were numbered and items placed into each box were listed on a legal pad. I posted about that here. Boxes going into our apartment were marked with Blue tape that was placed under the box number. That way, we can easily see any box without the Blue tape should be kept on the truck to be taken on to the warehouse for storage. Those boxes are filled with items we will not need until we move into our new home.
Boxes filled with items we will need during the next five or six months were marked with Blue tape.
In addition, I wrote the room (office, bedroom, kitchen) where the box should be placed on its top. Note that this box has "Fragile" added to the four sides and top.
You may notice that my home seems empty. That's because we have given away our six-piece sectional sofa and our kitchen table and chairs. Some of our furniture was placed into storage before we listed our house (as suggested by HGTV).
Here's a couple of shots of the kitchen just for BJ. She wanted me to show my kitchen. Here ya go, BJ!
Some boxes were not yet sealed in this picture. The kitchen cabinets are Sanibel maple.
It's easy to see that these boxes dressed in their pretty Blue tape are headed toward our apartment. I'll give you a full report on the movers tomorrow.
Good stuff, that Blue tape.
