Today I am thankful for "no pack" zones. Places around the house marked and saved for a later date, rather than having the movers come and take everything.
Taken the kitchen, if the movers come and pack up EVERYTHING today, Hubs and I would not have any drinking cups, plates or a way to cook anything. We could eat out for the next few weeks but that gets so expensive. So we have a picnic set we keep for moving purposes. Its plates/cups/and reusable plastic utensils that we have used for all our past moves. 1 knife, a small veggie pan, can opener, cookie sheet, and a single serve french press round out the kitchen items.we save behind.
This makes an empty apartment still livable after our household goods go on a truck. We have an air mattress, moving pillows, and even a moving blanket that will end up space-bagged in the trunk for use here and our next location. I make signs for all the "no pack" zones, because when the movers arrive, things get crazy and I cant be in every room all the time.
Its moving day here, which is why I am so thankful for my no pack spaces.
