I've started trying to pack up all our belongs for our inevitable move at the end of the month. But, we're still waiting for the paperwork to be finalized so we can set up a permanent closing date. The waiting around for all the boxes on the forms to be checked off is really frustrating to me, since I'm the type of gal that wants to get it done and over with.
So I'm trying to be good and keep myself busy (you know, when I'm not working at the bakery). Of the highlights:
- I discovered Space Bags, in which you fill up with garments, blankets, etc., and then use a vacuum to suck out the air and shrink in size. What is left is a little brick of your compressed items. It was pretty cool the first time, but one of the bags keeps growing and absorbing air. Oh well. Can't win them all I suppose.
- We have officially bought 40 small boxes and 15 medium boxes. I've also accumulated any box the bakery no longer needs (and were previous homes to eggs, milk, chocolate chips, etc.). About 15 percent of all boxes are actually filled with items right now.
