Boxing Days...

We sold our house (in 1 day!) and have also found a new place to live.  It's an exciting and stressful time around here.  We're moving about 2 miles away - a relief because I didn't want to leave my friends.  Smaller digs though - that will be THE challenge for me!

Even though our closing date is mid-June, I'm getting the upper hand on collecting boxes to use.  I found that the local Walgreens Liquor Store always has empty boxes piled up in a corner free for the taking.  I load the car up every time I go up the grocery store.

A one-day sale is fantastic Pat!! I'm happy for you, to get to stay near your friends. It's good to start gathering boxes soon. Hope it all goes smooth!!

Congratulations! Selling and buying a house all at the same time can be so tricky, so glad it is working out. Now for the packing part... good luck :)

How fun!!

Oh, my! That was fast! Good friends are moving to Fort Meyers permanently and I'm helping them with their sale this weekend. They don't relish packing as they are moving to a much smaller spot and have to make careful choices. The liquor boxes are a great size -- big enough to get things in; small enough to be able to lift! Congratulations!

Those boxes are always so handy when moving. Best of luck on packing.

Wow, what great news that your home sold so quickly. And your boxes are a wonderful Friday Find. It's great when something is just easy - it's hard enough to pack without having to hunt for boxes! Happy sorting and packing and moving to a new space. Fresh starts bring such a renewed spirit.

That's a quick sale! Glad you already have a new place to move to....now you just have to pack all those boxes.

Very smart way to move. I remember when we had to move our grandmother, we ended up paying big bucks for the boxes. Recycling is the way to go.

Who would have thought that a photograph of piled-up boxes could be so cool?! Great shot.
Good luck with the move.
