Gathering boxes to move is a sport for me!
Not having to buy boxes motivates me.
Knowing that reusing the old cardboard means
new change for me… So exciting!!!!
We move in 8 days.
Tomorrow, some friends are coming to help us Pack!
Not move, yet… just pack!
(Yes, you’re jealous of our friends! Be very jealous!
They’re A CONSTANT blessing!)
Until a couple of days ago we only had a VERY few boxes.
Then, the shameless dumpster diving & pathetically desperate
text messages were sent (to some of those same great friends).
Boxes have started to arrive! (Thanks, Erika!)
Also, this JACKPOT (pictured below) was discovered
behind Target! (Have I mentioned that I love that store!)
And, cloth carts of cardboard treasures
were discovered during a recent grocery shopping
We grabbed so many of those treasures that sweet little Zoe
had to carry around the ones that didn’t fit into the cart.
My house… (below) ugh…
But all for GOOD reason!
And, if you happen to drive behind a store or shopping center
and catch a quick glimpse of a brown-haired lady frantically
yanking boxes out of giant green dumpsters, and a car full of
children carefully ducking their heads so as not to be recognized…
(and honk LOUDLY cuz that lady is probably shamelessly
talking to herself and saying, “YES! We hit the BOX jackpot!!!”)
