I've got a virtual mountain of boxes in my living room. All items I don't need access to in the short-term.
Have given away almost a pick-up load of stuff ( if not more )... woohoo!
Move is scheduled for the 12th of August... so I'm pretty far ahead of the game (which is entirely the point). Hoping tomorrow to do laundry & start digging through the garage to identify things to give away/toss.
Gotta love the Flylady system - of breaking the task down to small steps. I've been packing a box or two every evening, more on weekends... feels pretty good.
Have a couple of companies on the line to give me an estimate for loading & unloading the truck for the move. For the $300-$400 it's going to cost me, I figure its WAY, WAY better than trying to move myself with the stairs. Just yesterday, I had to shift my weight ever so slightly while carrying empty boxes up the stairs.... and I felt a twinge in the knee that reminded me that I'm still not back 100%. I figure getting them to lug things down the stairs will probably keep me from screwing up my knee... and if all they want to charge me is a couple of hundred dollars? SO WORTH IT!!!!
