Kitchen Packing

If you have read my blog for a while, you know that the kitchen is my favorite space in the house (my sewing room and play closet under the stairs are in second and maybe my cozy living room...). But I LOVE my kitchen! 

I love having an efficient kitchen. Love it. It makes cooking more enjoyable and just makes me happy. So, the thought of people helping me unpack and asking me a hundred questions and not putting stuff where I wanted was really stressing me out. Plus, having to make decisions on moving day seemed extra stressful. 

The more I thought about it the more I just wanted to curl up in a ball and cry or try to do everything myself. Both of which are terrible ideas. Then I had a brilliant idea (at least I think it is pretty smart). I wrote up all the cupboards and drawers and both my old and new house. I then assigned everything a new home. 

Now when I pack a box from the kitchen I mark where it goes in the new house.

They are also marked with what shelf in the cupboard they go to. Now anyone can unpack my boxes for me and I can go and get other things accomplished. :) 

And the comments on my blog don't seem to be working again for some people. So, if you want to volunteer to help unpack boxes, because it will be so easy now (ha ha), text or call me. 

Do you have any favorite packing tips?

I gave every box a number and then had a master list. As we were bringin things in I could easily refer to that list. It also helps when looking for something specific in the basement as the boxes are all lined up! Some things are staying packed until we redo our kitchen or other things, like books, until we get some more bookshelves. It may seem like a lot of work BUT it is so worth it in the end! I also did this when moving from the apartment to our first house. Wish I could help! Will be praying for a smooth move and lots of helpers.

I like that. What a good idea. I should have asked for tips a few weeks ago.
