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…

XOXO
