    just pack the whole house LOL. I've been going through and de-pack-ratting while I pack, so that takes longer as well, but it needs to be done. We're not moving everything.  I wish we could pack things and move them right to the new place, but it's too far away for that. My in laws are coming Wednesday with the truck to load everything and move it.

    As for Bit... some of it is that she doesn't want to throw anything away, even broken barbie doll furniture. She wants to keep it. Her stuff really needs to get cleaned out. That's part of the problem. Part of it is she's almost 10, and going through body changes. She's also of two feelings about the move because she's leaving friends behind. I think it may help that I found a playground Girl's Club about 4 blocks from the new house.

      My child also didn't want to toss, but I never had to move that stuff.  I just boxed it and kept it in the closet until college, then went through it and only saved what might have been useful.  (I still have boxes of collectable magazines that there has been no room for, but that won't be forever!)

        that's exactly what it is. We've been here about 6 years and things just.. accumulate. This is a good reason to clean things out. I just can't convince my daughter of that LOL. We got the bathroom done, just have to get the trash out, but I'm taking a break. Just have the last minute stuff in there to throw into a bag on Wed. morning (deodorant, tooth brushes, etc.) I'm packing up clothes today too all but a couple of outfits a piece. Emptying out closets, etc. CPAP I can't pack until Wednesday, Nebulizer moves in the car with us in case, ditto laptops. I have to pack up Draco's collector dragon lamp yet, but I have a whole big box of packing peanuts and the original box to put that in. I'm at the much done but pulling my hair out stage LOL.
