Moving is...

Oh, there are so many words. Moving is... annoying, hard, exciting, expensive, liberating, time-consuming, crazy-making.

For those who missed the news, my husband got a teaching job in far northern California for this next school year. That is a long way away. So, we're purging. Not only do I not want to have to pay more to move all this junk, and take the time to pack all of it, but we'll probably be in a smaller house out there. So even though we're more than 2 months away from the move, I've already started purging and packing up boxes. (There's a toddler. Everything takes longer than it should.)

It turns out there was at least one easy way to get rid of 13 pounds of my stuff:


Take all the t-shirts I've been saving to make a t-shirt quilt out of, and cut them down into quilt squares:


Yep. Anyone need 13 pounds of t-shirt scraps?

They make great handkerchiefs! So soft...

I hope the purging and packing and all doesn't get too stressful. We're praying for your family and the changes ahead!

I have a huge tote full of t-shirts for a blanket, this is a very good tip!

Hooray for the pre-move purge!
