I honestly am sitting here and can’t believe that it is already almost mid May… If you were to ask me what month it was I would say end of February or first of April for sure. It is crazy how fast time has flown by… With time flying by, that means we will be in our home in about a month hopefully! I am getting excited that everything is moving and shaking there. We are all the way to cabinets being put in hopefully next week! All of our tile is down and when I saw it was completely obsessed with it. We are doing all of our main floor (excluding bedrooms) tile so Matt can come over in his wheelchair and be able to get around.
Since we will be moving sooner than later, I have started packing and such. The last time that we moved I had so many questions on how to make moving easier and especially with little so I figured now is the perfect time to share what works best for us while we are moving and hopefully it will help you too!
1 – Start early! Start packing the things that you don’t use daily, things like seasonal clothes, dishes that are for special occasions, etc. This will help you to have less to pack when it comes down to crunch time. We start packing up these types of things about a month before we are moving so we can do a little here and a little there.
2 – Only buy foods that you can move with! It is so hard to pack up a move all the things in your fridge. Buy things at the grocery store that are going to be easy to move starting a week or two before you are moving. We snag a lot of Kidfresh meals because they are easy to move and King is obsessed with them and so am I. We try to eat everything we have in our cupboards starting a month before we move so we aren’t buying new food that we have to move.
3 – Find things that simplify your life while you are moving. Making lunch is something that can easily be simplified. King is absolutely in love with Kidfresh Frozen Meals that you can snag at Kroger /Kroger Family Stores (they are 15% off for a limited time so run) and so am I. They have hidden veggies + the best in kids nutrition. I love knowing that it is something quick that I can make for him, that is healthy, and helps us when our life is in literal chaos. Convenience + Relief for Busy Moms, what else could you need? They are all ready for him within a few minutes because does anyone else’s littles realize that they are hungry when “hanger” starts happening? Kidfresh is super affordable at only $2.99 to $3.99 depending on the retailer. Seriously neither King or I could be happier with them and I sneak them for a snack for myself all the time too! Plus can I just tell you that Kidfresh has Trust + Credibility? All their products are created with the help of a top chef and a pediatric nutritionist, Kidfresh meals are consistent with USDA dietary guidelines for all children which is super important to me!
4 – When you are moved, unpack the must haves that you packed last at your previous house first. The other things can be unpacked a little bit slower, but you have to have your must haves!
5 – Label, Label, Label! We try to color code and label by room. Kitchen – Yellow, King’s room – Blue, etc. Then when you are unpacking and looking for things you can know which boxes easily that it might be in. We also list everything that is in the box on all the sides of the box so we can find things easier!
I hope this helps with your moving process! I can’t believe that it is time for us to start packing again and hopefully be in our home around mid to end of June!!
You can find Kidfresh down the frozen food aisle at your local Kroger Banner Store!
