Blitz-It Friday - Big Project: Moving #3

I can hardly believe that we are moving in less than a week.
On Saturday, we are having another big yard sale. This one should be even bigger than the last one.

We have now sorted through about 90% of our apartment - all the closets, drawers, cupboards, bookshelves and more. This has been a hard purging process. My husband and I are so burned out with the weeks of this - we are at the point where everything left just needs to go into a box.

Our bedroom has a huge stack of boxes in it - 32 boxes at last count. We have blitzed too many hours to count in the last few weeks. And we are almost done ... we have to be almost done, right?


GOALS FOR THE NEXT FOUR DAYS (July 25 - 29):
  1. Finish UK Visa applications
  2. Big Yard Sale on Saturday
  3. Put EVERYTHING into boxes
  4. Pack for six weeks in the Northwest with family
  5. Pack for three years in Scotland (only taking what we can carry on the plane)
  6. Clean the apartment
If you want to follow all the details of our crazy move, this will be the topic of my Blitz-It Friday's for the next several weeks.

Stop by Organized Everyday for more projects that are being blitzed.

Lots to do, but I know you will do great.
Just get a babysitter after it is all set and
done and take a nap!
Miss you!

Did I read SCOTLAND?? Somehow I missed this little detail. Sorry!! Yes, you do have to be a lot more organized for an overseas move. What a neat, great,memorable, adventure! Yes, we missed you last week, but you were actually blitzing, and not just writing about blitzing. Tell me you are still going to blog as you move and after you settle??

Hi Christy

I got your blog from a friend here in Aberdeen. Your moving story sounds so familiar! We were doing all of that two years ago. We also got to the point where we just needed to put it all in a box or suitcase and not worry about it any more! I know it is hard work but it is worth it! We look forward to having you as part of our "Aberdeen Family" in September.

Blessings to you as you prepare to come,
Rachel :)
