You might find this strange, or just strangely amusing, but although I haven’t yet unpacked my socks or all of my pantry items or my underwear drawer for that matter, I don’t waste anytime hanging my wall decor. It makes me feel like it’s home and gets a lot of stuff off the floor. I think I hung these items on day 2 or 3. If your memory is fuzzy, they were hanging exactly like this at the other house but against Hershey’s chocolate walls.
My stuff looks so different in this house.
And for some reason, I didn’t feel quite settled until I bought eggs. Apparently, having eggs in the house means it’s official. Otherwise, I’m just on vacation at a really cool lake house. But with eggs, I can bake, which means I’m home. We’re lucky to have family visiting this weekend so I think I’ll make chocolate chip cookies. And then unpack my essential sundries so that I don’t have to retrieve undergarments and garlic seasoning from a giant box in my car. (In my defense, I’m almost done unpacking what I’m going to unpack—about 6 more boxes to go!!!)
So, how do you unpack and what’s the one item that let’s you know you’re home?
P.S. Moving sale at my ‘old’ house this Saturday from 9-2 rain or shine. There’ll be something for everyone. And we’ll be selling stuff from both the upper and lower garages. Don’t miss it!
