- Scored some packing materials for free today - a wardrobe box in great condition and some bubble wrap. Hoping that the person who offered packing paper responds with where and when I can pick it up. The wardrobe box may end up being used to pack my antique chair but if not it will be great for coats, etc. I will keep scavenging LOL.
Don't you love the carved face? We used to hang our Christmas stockings from the ears when I was a child. Before that it was a prop in my Grandfather's portrait studio and my Mom thinks he picked it up secondhand. The label says it is from about 1905 and made by the Michigan Chair Company.
- Found some "how to pack" videos" to watch regarding tough to pack items like lamps, paintings, decorative items, TVs, etc.
- Received retrofit certification for new house.
- Sent completed HOA paperwork to escrow.
- Set up transfer of electric utility to us.
- Put 2 plastic chairs, 2 plastic end table and misc. tools at curb - gone within 2 hours.
- Agreed that we would list the older car and some major furniture items for sale this weekend.
- Got that car washed and vacuumed.
- Agreed we would start packing with pictures, artwork, decorative items and tools this weekend which will also help decide what not to take in those categories.
- Pulled out all boxes, storage containers and packing materials that we have in basement.
- Finally received settlement statement from escrow for new house. Will initiate wire transfer on Monday. Closing is Wednesday, March 22. Yikes.
