Move Countdown: 31 days

We now have 31 days to go until our move. Over the last few evenings, we've made a decent amount of progress. We both went through our closet and took out things we no longer wear but are in good condition. They will be shipped off to Siberia, the Philippines, or wherever else our church may be shipping supplies to next. I also went through 6 years of filing and combined it into about one tenth the space (for a total of two garbage bags full of compact paper shredding).

And we've managed to pack up a few boxes. Six so far. And we're keeping a computerized list of boxes and contents so if we need to find anything after the move, it might make it easier. Natasha did this with her move out here, and it came in really handy.

Overall, I think we're in good shape. I was a bit overwhelmed at first, but now that things are being taken apart and packed, it already seems much more under control. If we can keep the same progress rate over then next 30 days as we have over the last few, we'll be in great shape for the move.

That's a neat idea about having all the information on your computer. I should do that for some of our big plastic tubs that we use to store things like kitchen items we rarely use, or old keepsakes.
