Packing... again!

As excited as I am about moving back to my beautiful hometown, I have to say that I do not like packing. I got an early start, so maybe it won't be too bad. I've already done the easy stuff (bookshelves, blankets that have been sitting in closets the entire time we've lived here, the boys' toy net, food storage), but now I'm getting to the harder stuff. I was going to pack a lot today, and guess how many boxes I packed . . . ONE! I'm not sure where to go from here. I feel like everything else is stuff we still need (food, clothes, the computer, toiletries). Maybe I should just pretend we're going on a week long trip (we move one week from tomorrow), and pack a bag with all our essentials, and then put everything but that into boxes. Any suggestions on packing would be great. Though I've done it twice in the past year and a half, I'm still not very good at it. Wish me luck!

Packing is the worst! It was bad enough to pack to move from our apartment into this house- we had so much stuff then. I can't even imagine trying to pack now. We accumulate stuff so quickly! I like the idea of packing what you will need for a week and then packing everything else but that! Good Luck!

I prefer packing to unpacking. Packing, just throw everything in a box, unpacking yo have to decide where everything goes and what you are going to keep or give away. Then you don't have the advantage of baby sitters (usually) when you are unpacking like you do when you are packing.

Pack up the kitchen, It takes the longest, you can use paper goods and frozen meals.
