How do I start getting organized to move into new house?
We have SO much stuff and SO many clothes that I just hate the thought of starting. I'm not a great housekeeper so this adds to the procrastination I have holding me back.
We are almost done (maybe 2-3 weeks out) with our beautiful new home we built and I think I'm just so overwhelmed by the thought of moving, organizing, tossing, and finding a place for all of our stuff that I just don't know what I'm going to do! I really feel anxious and depressed when I think about it because I want it all to be perfect and neat and organized when we move but I don't know if it will be right away and it's stressing me out!
The main problem we have now in our mobile home is it's too small and has NO storage which I don't think will be a problem in the new house except I wanted to buy us all new BIG nice dressers not like the hand-me-downs we have now that hold very little but I don't know if we can swing the money for them right away and I just think if I don't have all the new, nicer, bigger stuff I want right when we move I might get discouraged with the whole thing and be miserable with the outcome.
We have a huge closet so if we don't have a new big dresser right away it won't be that big of a deal but the kids have to have them because their closets are smaller of course. I think that will be OK for us to wait and just get them the new ones.
What should I do now to get ready since I have procrastinated this long and now have to really get on the ball to get things half way sorted through and organized so I won't be running like crazy when we do move hopfully before thanksgiving! Which is another issue...I want to be ready for company! not have junk everywhere :( so we can have dinner at my new home... you see this house was supposed to be " done in June no later than August!!!" per the GC ...YAAA right! so that is another source of frustration and anxiety for me moving so late and close to the holidays and no time to get everythign like I wanted it BEFORE the holidays! It's just been a mess!!! I hate the whole process right now and can't wait for it to be over!!! I just don't know how I'm going to get it all done
ANY advice would be great! thanks in advance :)
