Got any great moving house, downsizing or packing tips for me?
It’s been a LONG TIME since I moved house. And not only are we moving, we are DOWNSIZING. Considerably. As well as amalgamating two full houses and two massive sheds full of stuff into one house, and one very small shed.
I admit, it’s a little overwhelming. (Okay, a lot!) Still, we’re actually excited about going through everything, and whittling it down to what matters (maybe because we haven’t done it yet, so it still seems like it could be fun?). Hey, it’s not like we need all this stuff. When Ben was flying up in Palau we lived in a large hotel room, with two suitcases, a dive bag, a backpack and my laptop bag. We had everything we needed except our dog, and we were happy. In fact, when we finally got home to Australia, we looked around at all the stuff we’d left behind and wondered why we had so much of it!
This afternoon we start in earnest. So, your top tips would be appreciated.
Wish us luck! Lots of love, Nicole xx
