We are moving to our newly built home very soon...yikes...less than a month. Plus we are having a baby before the year is out. Oh, and DH is deploying within 2 months of the baby's arrival too.
Pathetically though, what is motivating us the most is the fact that WE have to pay for this move (we're military and used to THEM paying, sending in the packers with boxes, tape, everything while you sit back and order everyone pizza). Looking around me, I'm thinking....'No way am I PAYING someone to move this crap.'
So, garbage day in on Wednesday. I bought a box of 100 lawn and leaf bags, you know, the 50+ gallon size or something absurd like that. We had six of them out at the curb last week, and that was in addition to our normal household garbage. I've got another 4 full of stuff to be donated to Good Will.
I figure if I can fill those 100 bags with either trash or donation items, we'll be WAY ahead of the game when we move the remaining stuff to our new house. We shall see....
My kids actually think it's fun to whip out a new bag, 'fluff it up' as they put it, and watch me go crazy filling it. Unless it's THEIR stuff...must do that after bedtime.
