I feel your pain. We moved about a week after we got married, from Ky to Mi. I’ve still got plenty of boxes I need to sort through, but we’ve been so busy! I really hate moving, too. :-

It helps to clear clutter as you unpack, aka unpack and organize what you want to keep and leave the rest in the boxes to sort as “donate/throwaway/garagesale”

We purged before we packed. I was paying movers and refused to pay to move ish that I didn’t really want to have in my house anyway.

And yeah, packing-moving-unpacking really sucks. It’s been 5 months and I still have not finished unpacking. ugh.

I hear ya. I just moved into DH’s house (now “our house”) after the wedding. But it’s not like I can just unpack my stuff. No, we have to sort through my stuff and his to decide what to keep and what to get rid of. And we’ve been reorganizing cabinets to get things in better places. It’s a pain!

I just moved across the country, and now I live in a tiny 1 bedroom in the downtown area of Seattle. I started unpacking today, and I just took a break to reevaluate the decisions I’ve made.  So stressful, especially with such little space.

I haaaate moving. The packing part sucks, but I actually like unpacking it. I tend to clear out junk better this way because it’s easier to throw it into a box when you’re leaving a place, but when you get to the other end it’s like where the hell am I gonna put this junk? Toss!

I’ve moved three times in the past two years, so I’m staying put for as long as I possibly can.  I just can’t do it anymore.

When we moved for the last time this summer, I was in my first trimester, and exhausted.  Darling Husband really stepped up, and did most of the packing, but his methods of packing are quite different from mine.  I’m super organized, and label everything.  He throws anything and everything that will fit into the box, from multiple rooms/locations.  Needless to say, unpacking was not fun.
