Top 10 Tips for Moving House

1Celebrate finally finding a house bigger than a shoebox by having a glass of bubbles.

2. Find a whole bunch of empty cardboard boxes and newspapers so you are ready to start packing

3. De-clutter, de-clutter, de-clutter

4. Get bored with de-cluttering and have a glass of bubbles instead

5. Realise you only have 4 weeks until moving day and start panicking

6. Realise you have too much stuff to possibly contemplate packing so sit down in front of the tv with a glass of bubbles instead

7. When your husband tells you not to pack all the books into one box so that it’s too heavy to lift, throw a tantrum and refuse to pack another thing!

8. Grab out the newspapers to start wrapping glasswear – get distracted and start reading the newspapers – who has time to do that normally.  Realise an hour has gone by, you’ve only wrapped one glass and now it’s time to pick the kids up from school – crap.

9. Prepare to start packing again only to realise that the kids have stolen all the boxes and turned them into a giant fort.

10.Decide it’s all too hard – can’t we just stay in our shoebox and rent out the new house we just bought?



  1. That was a funny post. Moving can be a difficult endeavor but worth it in the end. Just think of your new home and it will all be worth it.

    1. ha ha thank you. I keep telling myself it will all be worth it in the end. I know understand why everyone says buying/selling and moving are the most stressful things you will ever do - argh!!!!
