Things to Expect When Packing

There are a lot of reason as to why people would want to move out. All the while, it is always going to be a rollercoaster ride from up to the actual move-in date. But whatever your reason is, your moving experience will almost always be the same.

You’ll find things you thought you lost! You thought you lost that one bracelet your mother gave you a few years ago from Christmas, but you happen to find it behind your dresser. No, it’s just been sitting there waiting for you to discover it again.

Everything will be messy! There are a few ways to make moving super organized, but no matter how much you try, there will still be some sort of a mess so don’t be surprised to find yourself lost in that pile of clothes on your left, and that pile of unwanted knick knacks on your right.

Boxes, Boxes, Boxes! This is inevitable. First you prepare one box, and then you realize that you want another one just to organize your clothes, piles of DVDs, necessities, etc… Next thing you know you see boxes from left to right. Who knew that organization can be quite, messy?

You’ll be reminiscing. This part is unavoidable! As you go through so many of your items, you realize how much each one has a story. Maybe it’s that CD your best friend gave you in high school, or that old t-shirt you wore for your first dance festival. Whatever that item is, moving helps you remember your bittersweet memories.

A mountain of unwanted items. Unless you prefer to keep everything that you have, you’ll soon realize that some of the things in your home are some things you realize you didn’t need to begin with. So that old dress you wore once at a dinner party, will end up in the donation box. Or that old mug you promised yourself becomes nothing but junk.
