Moving madness {part two}

The madness continues!  I have been packing like crazy! Here's what I have so far:

{please excuse the poor lighting}


I just wasn't sure what a good place to stash packed boxes....so in the dining room they went. Who needs to eat right? and remember my "Tuesday" list. I regret to inform you that it isn't complete yet.
but I am making progress.

The colored x's are way better than regular x's.

The other thing I have been working on is my "apartment notebook"
I just used a composition book and covered it in scrapbook paper and coated it with mod podge. After the mod podge was dry, I covered it with a clear acrylic sealer. Easy peasy.








On the inside I popped in a quick pocket to store receipts for things I have purchased for the move or the new apartment.

Not much in there so far...


Then on the first page is the key for my color coded labels. Nothing too complicated.

Then on the following pages are the box contents. Each room gets a page. Then I just have the contents of each box listed by number. All the boxes have a number or some sort of identifier.




And another pocket on the back cover :



I know its nothing fancy, but I'm hoping that it will help make the moving and unpacking process go more smoothly. Especially since my family {who are all super excited to help me move} won't have to ask where each box should go since they are all nicely labeled. And the contents will help me know which boxes to unpack first. 

I'm hoping to be packed and ready before moving day so I can spend my last days searching pinterest for wonderful ideas for the new apartment.
Have a great weekend everyone.
Also, I will post the different options for moving labels that I made sometime. They are on another computer {because doesn't everyone have three different computers?} and its not very easily accessible right now.
