I don’t have a lot of time today, but I thought I would post this one tip that is coming in very handy for us right now. And I’m actually shocked at how many people don’t know this, too.
We’re moving. Which means we need boxes. Lots and lots and lots of boxes. But we don’t go to a moving company and pay for boxes. We go to the grocery store. If you go at a time they are restocking (well, any time really), you can get OODLES of boxes for FREE! I recommend egg boxes and banana boxes, because they are the sturdiest. I don’t recommend granola bar and frito lay boxes (they are too small to be of much use to us).
The other thing that seems to be working effectively: I wasn’t sure that Little Bit was getting the concept of moving. We’ll give her a box and tell her to pack her toys. She seems to understand that. We do have to be careful that she doesn’t then UN-pack, but we’re working on it. 😀
Grocery Store = Free Boxes and that Works For Me!
