So I guess you’ve all been holding your breaths ever since I moved and are dying to know how many boxes I ended up using?
Before starting to pack my own guess would have been around 40 but my friend Anne urged me to get a hundred. I was like, “No way I’m going to use one hundred boxes!”.
Um. I packed. Packed. Packed. And then packed some more.
I USED ALL ONE HUNDRED + THREE! 103!!!
The three I didn’t have to begin with but our movers got them from their van to protect the microwave, a large lamp shade and something else which I’m not sure about.
I still can’t believe I used that many but I’m blaming it ALL on the movers wanting EVERYTHING boxed in uniform boxes so I packed my plastic bins in their boxes kind of thing So they weren’t really filled to the brim. Excuses, excuses. Anyway, I urge you to get twice as many boxes than you think you’ll need when moving. AT LEAST!
So who won? Remember I said I’d send a little something to whoever guessed the correct amount.
We have three winners!
Meghan who said: 103 is the number that keeps coming to mind... good luck... we packed up our life a year ago and i swear no matter how many boxes we had we always needed more!
Notablogger who wrote: We packed our house for storage last year - 103 boxes inventoried and color-coded for rooms should we ever get to unpack them. So... 103 for you, too!
Stephanie in Seattle who guessed: 103 boxes :D Congratulations on your new house, by the way!
Congratulations! I’ll be in touch to get your snail mail addresses!
And HAPPY WEEKEND!!
Ps. Where those boxes are is where the Expedit stands now.
