Happy Monday! In case you missed it over on the gram, we have some very sweet news to share over here:
We found and signed a contract for a house!!
I have SO MANY things that I can’t wait to share with y’all about the new house, but I am going to wait until it’s actually officially ours to dig in. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your incredibly kind words and sweet comments and emails about our news. Your support has been just breathtaking and such a precious gift. Thank you for being excited for our crew. We close in a month, and I can’t wait to share more about it all on here. We are just so very thankful!
Since we are packing things up over here, I asked y’all for some great packing tips, and oh my stars did you guys deliver!
Quite a few people asked for me to publish these tips for you to reference later, and I am so happy to share them with you today! Before I do that, I added my 5 favorite tips (that were all you from you guys..thank you!) to get you started.
WHAT’S WORKED FOR US SO FAR!
- Start with the hardest rooms first–We did the kitchen and master closet first and this was fantastic! About halfway through the ktichen, I was regretting the kitchen. However, now it feels so good to have this done. and not looming over us. We’ve also done Presley’s room, the playroom, and the media room.
- Purge and then pack–since we are downsizing, I have made a pretty extensive donate pile during the process.
- Label everything.
- Pack away seasonal decor and items first.
- Ask friends for leftover boxes and packing materials. This has been huge. We have received so many donated boxes!
Want to check out the rest of the tips? There were some amazing ones submitted. Moving can be a beast, but these tips are so incredibly helpful. 🙂
Happy Monday, friends! I will see you here on Wednesday with a little bit of what’s going on around here. See you then! XO Narci
