Packing and moving

I wish I was saying that I am packing again and going on a holiday but unfortunately, I am not. Instead we are packing to move houses and it is really stressing me out. I know there is light at the end of the tunnel but there is so much to do before we move that it is driving me crazy.

When I first knew we were moving I thought I will plan things so that I don’t have to stress at all but how wrong I was. I did the first 10 boxes of packing with lots of excitement but then the excitement faded away. And that was just packing one of my wardrobes. Then the other boxes were packed but very slowly. I had so much to do and I had time but instead I was either watching Game of Thrones on TV or just sitting on the couch doing nothing. In my mind, I knew that I have to get it done and finish it but my body was not moving and the cold winter evenings were not helping at all.

Anyway, we have to move this weekend and I have packed may be 50% of our stuffs but still there is so much to be done. Both of us are working until Thursday, which means we have only Friday to pack everything so the removalists can come and move our stuffs over during the weekend.

I realised while I was packing, how much stuffs I have including clothes, shoes, belts, swimwear, and accessories but at the same time I don’t want to throw many things away. I do have a few boxes of stuffs, which I am planning to donate or throw but I know I can part with many more. I am trying my best to reason with myself and try to organise stuffs so it can be donated but it is not an easy job.

Over the years, I know I have added more stuffs to my collection than throwing things out so surely, my wardrobe will need good organisation and I think this is the best time to do it. But I am so stressed for the last few days that I have packed many things into the boxes thinking I will decide about them while I am unpacking.

What I really want to do in our new place is to have less clutter. I want things to be organised so I can find things when I am looking for them without spending too much time and making a mess of the wardrobe. I wish I could hire help who would unpack my stuffs and throw out the things I don’t use but that is not going to happen. So I hope while unpacking in our new home, I will come to my senses and be able to throw or donate more stuffs from those boxes.

So after this week, I will be unpacking, fixing our new place, organising stuffs and may not have internet for around 2 weeks so will not be blogging much. But I promise I will come back soon. Till then, take care everyone…

  1. I hope by now you are settling in and not too stressed. I liked your counting machine episode and also your aroma therapy massage cartoon picture, so cute! I mostly talked about the money on that page. Hope it is okay to carry over thoughts…Wishing you much blessings in your new home!

  2. I know it can be exhausting but the 2nd picture in this post is just the way we should pack as it saves time to re adjust the things with the labels in boxes and packets. Next thing is never to be overwhelmed. As we process we tend to be overwhelmed and sit back. It’s very rewarding at the end if u consider about results. And giving away unnecessary things is a good idea. Good luck and hope we see u soon:-) take care.

  3. oh have fun. and a good start in the new flat

  4. Wishing you much happiness in your new home.

  5. I usually get rid of things before the move, that way we don’t transport stuff we don’t need. Each move helps me to reduce unwanted stuff and clutter we accumulate . Good luck with your move.

  6. I just moved myself, so I know the feeling, trust me. Hope all goes well 🙂

  7. I so understand how your feeling. I’m about to move in 3 weeks time. So not looking forward to it! Hugs Paula xxx

  8. all the best dear..hope u find more happiness in the new place

  9. Best wishes on the move… deep breaths!

  10. Good luck. My family and I are moving at the end of this month too and it is SO hot where we are at…:-( The good thing about moving though is you realize how much unwanted stuff you have so I know we will be making many donations to local organizations. Hopefully the donations will help in some small way.

    • Thank you my dear. Yap, I think we need to move every few years to throw or donate the stuffs we no longer required. But moving is really time consuming. Good luck wit your move.

  11. Good luck! I very well know how stressful the whole process is, but just think how nice you’ll feel when you settle in a new place.

  12. I hate packing and unpacking but I am excellent at throwing/donating away things.My rule is if I havent used it for a year I know I will never ever use it- just donate it. Good luck 🙂

  13. I know how you feel di, I realize how hard it is when I moved from my Aunts place to my new apartment. When u unpack your stuff just keep the necessities:) In Chinese feng shui too much clutter is bad and good energy cannot move well if the house has too many unused things/clutter.

  14. very stressful job indeed…I hope you will fix ever thing and I can read your blog very soon…you also take care …

  15. Have fun and good luck with packing 🙂 Unpacking is a bigger nightmare.. !
