Moving: stage three

Boxes. That pretty much sums up stage three of moving from our one-bedroom townhouse apartment to a two-bedroom that's got a laundry room and balcony to boot. The goal is to put stuff in boxes in such a way that they can't be crushed or broken when movers toss them in the back of a large truck, then stacking the boxes in such a way so they aren't a fire hazard.

We're repurposing boxes where we can and filling in with small cardboard moving boxes from Home Depot, reasonable at 67 cents apiece. 

Another, more fun, part of this stage is planning what colors we're painting various walls in the new place. The Glidden paint display at Home Depot has pre-mixed samples of its most popular paint colors. I got two today to try on our walls, before we 100% commit to Robin's Egg and Clear Blue Sky.

I'll let you know how they turn out.
