Packing up for a move is is overwhelming. But with a tip from Susan in KY on The Well-Trained Mind Forums perhaps chaos won't rule. She suggested using different colored duct tape for each room/area so that when things come off the truck they go to the right spot. How clever!
I never knew there were so many colors and patterns to choose from in duct tape! The kids really got into the choosing the different colors. And although the actual move is 10 weeks away they were jazzed to start packing now.
We picked our colors based on which room they'll go into at our farm house.
