Tackle It Tuesday-Tackling a Move in 7 Days

by Jennifer Sikora

Jennifer here–

If you would have told me about three weeks ago that I would be packing my family up from one home and moving to another, all in the span of 7 days, I would have totally called you crazy. However, that is exactly what happened to us. The home that we moved to a mere 9 months ago and was planning on buying fell through. The landlord decided he did not want to sell and needed to take immediate occupancy.

He called us up on Friday, offered to buy out the remainder of our lease if we could find a house to move into, so he could move back in. Funny how things work out, because that afternoon, another house came on the market to rent, in an area that we had been dying to live, so we went and looked at it and by Monday we had signed the lease. We had exactly 5 days to pack and move and have everything switched to the new house! Can you say major chaos?

We went home and started packing and getting everything ready. We were able to move and do it smoothly, thanks to my husband’s expert packing skills. We labeled all the boxes where they should go and packed them accordingly onto the trailer and unloaded them just the same.

We have been here a couple of weeks now and all the boxes are unpacked. Now — I just have to find some new furniture!

That’s a fast move! I always have big ideas of how we’re going to sort all our stuff while we move. Never happens.
