So I’m late on this, like everything I wanted to do in the later half of February. If you forgive me for a hot minute, I can tell you why now.
WE HAVE A HOUSE!!!!!!! We got it for a steal, we’ve paid it outright, and will be making the MINIMAL renovations to it over the next month. The house really only needs cabinets and counter space, then the rest is minor TLC (paint to the bedrooms, a garage door fix, and yard work/fencing).
I’ll be posting a follow up blog on the story of how we got it, plus some updates (once we get there), and basic tips on how to pack, regardless if you’re moving into a starter home, your first apartment, or a potential forever home like we are!
Babe and I have moved at least 15 times between the both of us, and that includes some struggles, let me tell ya! That’s never minding babe helping others move, as a side job. He’s done a 100 moves easy. So we’re kind of tired of the whole moving thing.
Anyway, you came here for the planning, not the packing! Let’s get to it, shall we?
So it’s March, month of the Irish, and also the start of Lent. Are you doing anything for St Patrick’s Day? Mine’s going to be painting.
A lot of my “planning” is off my planner this time, as it’s a “check list” type. I guess I should say that it’s not so much on the monthly outlook but on to the weekly outlooks.
Weekly outlook for this week (week we’re signing and getting keys for our home:
With this move, babe has allowed me to have room to pace on packing things up. I think I collected enough boxes now haha! I’ll spare you the amount of boxes for now. I’ll share that in the moving post!
It’s such a simple looking month, but it’s so much! We have some projects we need to conquer at the house, but it’s very minor and very much a cosmetic thing, and not a “it needs major work” home. We are so fortunate and grateful on how this fell in our lap. That story will be in the moving post as well for ya’ll.
If this is any excuse for being rather absent/on the down low for the last near month now, I hope ya’ll will be ok with it! Post move, I can share my gardening journey, since I’m going to be starting that journey for the first time as an adult.
I hope the best for all of you, as we’ve seen some beautiful times as of this last month. How was February for ya’ll? How is March treating you? Let me know in the comments!
