I am 35 weeks pregnant with #2. We have move 4 times in the past 2 years. This last move out of a house we owned into an apartment. We will be moving again soon, within 6M whether it be into a house here or in another state. Our apartment is really small, with alot of storage space in the garage. We didn't unpack alot b/c we are moving soon and it is so small we can't fit alot in. When we moved my husband was so happy with the help we got from friends he have them liberty to pick up boxes and put them in no particular order, which I don't blame him, but now we have no clue what we have shoved in the garage. Not to mention, I've gotta get baby stuff ready. My "nesting" is baffles my dh. "we have plenty of time, you need to relax". He doesn't get it.So I am cashing in my Mother's Day desire to go through all of the boxes, find out what we have, get rid of what we don't need.
There are alot of boxes. I want to make this as painless as possible for him, b/c in return that will be more painless on me. I will do all the sorting and repacking (of small stuff of course) and he will be the mover of the boxes.My dilemma is that alot of the boxes were packed with no specifically similar items.
There might be 30 boxes with a mix of kitchen, bath, clothes, media, toys, etc. How in the world to I go through all this in 2 days in an organized fashion. There is really no "extra" room in the garage for sorting. It will have to be done outside and with the extreme hope it doesn't rain or snow (which is not supposed to, however I'm in spring in MT).Please, any suggestions for such a large project to be handled in an organized manner?
Also, I know we will have alot to haul to donate. I don't know if anyone else has this problem where they live, but our centers, all 2 of them pick and choose what they will take and their red flags go up when you have large loads. I don't want to take this stuff to the landfill. That's some of the reason I've hung on to some of the stuff.
Sorry so long winded, I don't leave short voice mail messages either
