Since my September calendar is filling up fast, the number of days that I will be able to designate to packing will be greatly reduced. THEREFORE, I will start packing.
Where do you start? Here's what we do. Always start with the stuff you don't really use. That's all the cutesy stuff. The decorations. Grandma's tea cups. That stuff. If even that feels overwhelming, focus on only one room at a time. If you have a room to designate for packed boxes, by all means use a room to stack up the boxes that are ready to move. Otherwise, like us, where there is precious little floor space, you might need to be creative.
We have a large dresser/cabinet in our bedroom with mostly cutesy stuff. It will be the perfect place to start. I will be able to stack boxes on top of it. I might as well focus on the bedroom first. Since I will need the top of the dresser for boxes, I will pack it up first. Then, remove all the little pictures from the walls to pack. Oh, there. One room per day or weekend or whatever time frame you have. There is hope! Take it one step at a time. One day at a time. Remember: Baby steps!
