In December I spent every spare moment packing, organizing and sorting for moving. This wasn’t a normal move however. There have been several hard decisions we have prayed over lately and one of them was about our home. We were no longer able to afford our rent and had to come up with a plan. So… we moved into my in-laws house just a couple days after Christmas. This was not an easy decision but the one that we had the most peace about. This move meant that I had to pack for staying with them for a few months, pack for storage and due to the fact that space is limited, I had to make tough decisions about what I could get rid of. The benefit of this kind of move is that one is forced to declutter and downsize a lot. I found myself asking questions like, “Will I need this during the next few months?” or “Is this worth paying $90 a month to store?” Every box that was packed got a label of the exact contents that were put inside it. I only had one box marked “Miscellaneous” which was the box that was packed at the very end with little odds and ends that I found.
This past week, it was time to organize the storage so that we could finish getting some items in it and so that we could find things we might need in the next few months.
Opening up the door to see how it had been filled was a tad bit overwhelming. When we started filling it up we were careful about organization… towards the end we were just throwing it all in.
Daddy Reg and I spent a few hours pulling the furniture out and reorganizing all the boxes and making it so that we had one side of shelves that we could access as we need to.
Anyway that has been what I have been doing lately.
