  • I had my hub bring huge boxes home from his job.  I just started throwing stuff in them.  I am good at organizing but I hate to move also so I threw everything in boxes, sorted it out after we moved.

  • Oh my gosh- I HATE it too! We just got done with a move, and I'm STILL unpacking and rearranging and washing and boxing up unnecessary stuff! Ugh! If it weren't for the neighbors at the old place, I would have just stayed there! lol

  • I just recently moved my mother closer to me and that in itself was nightmarish...
    I dislike moving/packing alot, but I found that bc we moved close (between the last 2 places) I was
    able to take things to the new house everyday and unpack/clean and arrange before the actual moving day
    and while my little man was in school...
    But since I read you are moving 6 hrs away that would not be possible...
    Just make sure everything/boxes are labeled to which room you want things in...
    Just make sure that bdrms get loaded in last and set up first then living area and so-forth...
    this lessens the amount of work and makes the home start feeling more YOU...

    Good Luck

  • I hate it as well. We have moved 5-6 times and I am getting ready to make another move. Ugh. Fun right? NOT. Good luck!

  • Packing has become something I just is fine- I have it sorta down to a science now (after over 30 moves)
    It's the MESS that makes me crazy...
