With packing, I do have Johnny to help. We are plugging away making sure that each day we've made some progress. We look at every item to decide if:
- we should toss it into the trash,
- donate it to Salvation Army, or
- pack it into a box.
I number each box, fill it, and I write on a legal pad the box number along with its contents. In that way, we'll be able to tell when we get where we're going, which box(es) we want to open next. For instance, if I want to find the afghan, I locate it on the legal pad beside box number 10, and I know that if I open box 10, I'll have my afghan!
We plan to rent a warehouse to store things we won't need until we have our new home finished. So we are separating boxes that will go into the warehouse from boxes going with us into the apartment. We still have to find an apartment to rent!
