Unpacking

I really think the next time we move I want to move and set up all the furniture first so that when we move the boxes there's someplace to put the things we unpack.

I've donated (still in the back of the car actually, who knew Goodwill would be closed on Easter? Or anything would be closed, really? The Burlington Mall was closed!) one box of "why did we move this" and am starting another. Got a good amount recycled, got my new desk almost all put together. Almost because I had a bright idea of using a metal plate to attach two sections instead of putting in one of the standard legs and the screws I got from Home Depot are just too long.

2 new dressers put together, the landlord's broken coat rack is thrown away, a shelving unit for shoes it put together and I've started hanging the new, wall-mounted coat racks.

Kitchen is almost all unpacked, but I feel like I'll be saying that for another month. I'm just not sure where to put some things.

The bedroom is pretty well done, just bookshelves left to do in there and I'm not entirely sure what'll go on them anyway. Plus whatever art we want to hang there.

I need to find the camera again so I can put things on craigslist/ebay.

Yeah, I always like to get the furniture as much in place as possible before I start unpacking, for that very reason.
Sounds like you are making some progress though, that's great! I'm looking forward to seeing the new place when we come out next, provided i can find a flight that will not bankrupt me.

Yes, well, that happens during holidays. ;)

Whenever I have moved I basically make sure of two things:

#1) There is toiletpaper in the bathroom.
#2) Set up the bed first, make it, and keep it fairly clear so that when I am up late unpacking and get exhausted I don't have to make the bed then. :)

Glad things are moving along!

I have a digital camera. If yours doesn't turn up soon I could walk over and see the new place, and you could avail yourself of the camera?

Just let me know if you're free some evening.
