Packing up your entire life into a series of cardboard boxes can be stressful, physically taxing, and more to the point: time-consuming. It takes weeks to complete this process (significantly less if you are using moving services such as professional packers) and then moving day finally arrives, and everything goes onto the truck.
But you’re not done, are you? No, it turns out that weeks of boxing up belongings are followed by just as many weeks, if not more, of un-boxing. It’s not surprising at all that many people simply run out of steam at this stage, and allow the unpacking process to linger for far longer than it needs to. Personally, it is my favorite process of the move – finding a new home for everything in our new home!
