Charles and I are moving to Bel Air, Maryland [not California]…in a week. The opportunity to move came quickly, but we had been playing around with the idea of moving from New Jersey for a while so when the opportunity arose, we jumped on it. Needless to say, I will be taking a couple of weeks off from posting to pack, move and get settled.
To keep things organized in this crazy time, I created some box labels. I find it easier to write on a label, then affix it to the box after the box is packed vs. writing directly on the box. Everything is getting packed according to room, and then all of the items are listed on the side of the box. I am also planning on using different colors of sharpies to differentiate between the different rooms, so it will be easy to tell which box goes where. When we move in, I’ll know which boxes needed to get unpacked immediately, and which can sit for a while. I kept the labels pretty simple, and created two sizes and printed them onto full page sticky paper. If you are planning to move, feel free to download a copy: moving labels
