A few years ago I had written that one of my minimalist lifestyle dreams was to be able to move and set up our new place in 1-2 days. I am very pleased to say that with this recent move we were able to achieve that goal. I do not think that would have even been possible if we had not done another intense decluttering session prior to moving. I’m still deciding where I’m going to hang pictures and a few other decor details. I am hopeful that I can make those decisions before the weekend is over, but regardless we have come a long way. In general our entire apartment is effortlessly functioning and organized.
Since being in our new place we actually have gotten rid of even more stuff after noticing that we just didn’t need it here. There is no reason to find a place to store something that doesn’t belong anyway. It has been a freeing process and also actually enjoyable.
I never thought that moving could be enjoyable, but I honestly feel that this experience is attributed to hiring movers. You can see my tips for making the process of moving easy in this article. By hiring movers, my hubby and I weren’t completely exhausted the day of the move, and could start setting up the furniture and putting things away the same day. We did move in the same city so did not have to travel extensively.
I am also thrilled that this weekend is a beautiful three day holiday weekend! I always enjoy it when holidays are near because there is a more relaxed energy overall. Well I wish all of you a very Happy July 4th weekend and many abundant blessings!
Peace & Sunshine <3
