Moving requires packing

I know, right? Who knew?! Considering I've got less than two weeks left in Canberra (SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!), and considering my work mum dropped round a bunch of packing boxes yesterday, I figured I may as well take advantage of having nothing to do this afternoon and get things under way.

So far, I've packed my books and my DVDs, and cleaned out part of my closet. Here's the before pictures with annotations showing the SUPER important bits. (Don't ask me why all my 'writing' goes downhill to the right. I have no idea):
My room.

Also my room.

Living room.

Dining room.

And here's the progress I've made so far:

Feel free to judge my taste in films... And yes, those boxes JUST contain DVDs

ALL those boxes have books in them...

Not particularly impressive, I'll grant you. But it's a start! There'll be more progress pictures next weekend when my housemate, D, moves out, leaving me with a TV, some cushions, and the stuff in my bedroom. It's gonna be GREAT - like I've been burgled, only not..............

How's your Sunday been?

  1. Ugh! I am in the middle of packing all my things into boxes but Im in a state of madness to do it. Things are EVERYWHERE! I have taken your blog post as a sign to get off the computer and back to boxing things up :D

  2. I'm impressed with the boxes! Last time I moved, I ended up packing most of my stuff in bags (including small ones), and my dad, who helped me move, was not particularly amused... Good luck with the rest of the packing!

  3. I hate packing! I feel your pain.

    Please don't hurt yourself lifting the boxes... especially the ones full of books!

  4. I so hate moving and all the packing, unpacking and adjusting I have to do. When I get my own house someday, I'll stay put forever.

  5. I hate moving. I feel your pain.

  6. First, I LOVE your apartment. TOO CUTE! We have similar tastes.

    And I hate packing too. UGH. It's a big reason why I don't plan on changing apartments anytime soon. I don't want to pack up all my stuff and move AGAIN.

    Most of my boxes would also be filled with books - it's the biggest part of packing for me.

    Good luck!

  7. We're moving in a week or two as well. I've packed not one box. blleeegh.

  8. I hate packing! Good luck with it all!

  9. some progress is better than none! sometimes it's good to leave it til the last minute because that's when you gete ruthless with chucking stuff out. suddenly you realise the things that you can't be bothered packing musn't be that important after all and out they go! hehe

  10. Hahaha! I just realized last night that we move in 12 days. All I've done is pack the dvds too! It's so easy to do and with how many there is, it makes it look like I packed a lot of things lol! Good luck with your move!

  11. I'm actually starting to get kind of worried that all my stuff isn't going to fit in the van we've hired and that I'll have to make a sudden decision to ditch a ton of stuff... Although to be honest, I'd probably ditch the fridge (it was free) and keep the books/clothes/DVDs!!

  12. whoa! what was that? can you check packing peanuts? this is great! quite shocked somehow..


Leave me a comment and I'll love you forever (except for spambots...)
