The Move- Binder

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?

I think you're doing the biggest one...planning! Lists and planning are another thing we have in common....and they make a move so much easier!!

My hot tip is in all the books already: label your boxes according to the room they will go into in your new place. My other hot tip: If you can, clean behind all your furniture a week or so ahead of time so you can organize all the stuff you thought was lost, etc., and not have more than one of the dreaded "misc." boxes!
