There’s nothing quite like a move to send you on an emotional roller coaster. On the one hand, you’ve got to pack up your entire life, sort through all that extra junk you don’t need, and wrap endless kitchenware in newspaper. Even if you ultimately decide to hire movers, like I did, you can’t really escape the packing… not unless you want to trust someone to sort through your books, clothes, and Admiral Ackbar action figures, at least. Once you’re all moved in, you still have to go back to the old place and grab anything you’ve missed, and then… there’s the cleaning. Oh, the cleaning. I still haven’t gotten around to that yet, but it’s coming.
The exciting part about moving is, of course, the unpacking. The decorating. The endless pouring through magazines and their modern counterpart, Apartment Therapy, for ideas and inspiration. Though my new bedroom is currently a collection of boxes and bags, eventually it will be a new space just for me. In honor of that perfect, future set-up, here are a few of the things on my moving wishlist.
Although I’m definitely not the crafty sort, I will be attempting a few Ikea hacks this time around. Wish me luck!
