I'm super excited to get started with The Move to Oregon but seeing as it is still 5 months away there is not much I can do. I thought I'd make my self feel better if I got a bit more organized. I bought a binder and some plastic dividers with pockets.
I labeled a few- Austin House, Packing, Travel and Corvallis House. Then I put some plan white paper behind each so I could write my thoughts and create some lists. I love lists. In the pockets I've placed the city maps we bought when we visited.
I ordered a visitors guide on the Corvallis City website. It has so much information in it!
All the hotels are listed as well as a map of the city.
I finished it off by placing a colorful label and placing it next to my other binders. It's so nice to start off a big project by being organized.
I have found several great web sites about organizing for a move:
They all pretty much say the same thing: Be organized, do as much as you can ahead of time and sell everything you can buy there so you don't have to move it!
Do you have any good tips for organizing a cross country move?
