Packing is Evil

Yesterday I booked the movers and they are coming Wednesday. I'm kind of in shock. How can it be time to move already? Am I really giving up my apartment that I love with an amazing view and a huge kitchen? Even though I started (and stopped) packing a month ago, I have so much to pack. I've completely underestimated the amount of stuff I have, even with my slowly moving stuff down to Florida. I've used up all my free craigslist boxes and I have to go to stores begging for boxes tomorrow and most likely buy boxes from Home Depot. I already know I have to buy a special box for my floor lamp and I'm hoping to avoid buying more.

I am really proud of my Goodwill pile. I know I could have sold some of the items on Craigslist, but I was just really uncomfortable with the idea of a stranger coming to my apartment since I live alone. So I'm forgoing $100? for personal safety. Plus yay tax write offs! I know the hardest part of the drop off will be not shopping since my addiction to Goodwill is insane.

I am making one stop to shop before I leave Indianapolis. I learned about Lands End Canvas stores from a friend from Middle School on her blog today. I don't know how I didn't know about this store, but they have one in Indy and not Jacksonville! It's hidden inside Sears and I will make a trip there this week. I know I could shop online, but I really want to see the sales rack for summer clothes suitable for Florida Fall. Well that's my excuse and I'm sticking by it.

Thanks Rachel :) I am going to Sears tonight to finally see it myself. I'm pretty darn excited. I may also wander over to H&M for the trench coat they keep advertising on tv. I have to keep talking myself out a Banana Republic one every time I shop.

I can't believe that in less than 2 years we'll have 10 year HS reunions. That blows my mind.

I love donating things to Goodwill. It makes me feel good :) It's also an easy way to recycle!
