So, you’ve made the decision to downsize and move into somewhere a little smaller to support your new lifestyle. Now comes the fun part … moving.
As anyone who’s ever endured the struggle that is moving to a new house will tell you, there’s nothing particularly fun about boxing up your entire life just to unpack again when you arrive in your new home. Suddenly you become very aware of just how much ‘stuff’ you own and are forced to do some decluttering to make sure you don’t end up stuffing your new abode with an abundance of excess homewares. Then there’s the added pressure of dealing with removalist companies and, of course, the actual act of unpacking, which can be a drawn-out process if your boxes aren’t labelled appropriately.
A Los Angeles-based woman recently took her plight to Twitter, calling for help from her followers as she struggled with the moving process. In her original tweet, she wrote: “Moving this Sunday! Any tips or tricks for your girl?! I’m using stackable and reusable bins, but anything else eco-friendly is appreciated!”
