Packing, Moving, Agoraphobia, and Trying to Stay Positive

Hello, future friends,

We are in the final stages of buying our last house. We've been packing and purging for a year in preparation. I've never been in the house because of the agoraphobia mentioned in the title.

I hope to get some participation from Houzzers who might have packing/moving tips and just general conversation to exchange thoughts, opinions, and ideas to make the process as positive as possible.

The two best tips I've found so far: 1) tape boxes containing essential items with red duct tape to make these important items easier to find among all of the other boxes. 2) set up and make the bed in the new house before doing anything else - that way, when you're exhausted from working your tail off, you can go straight to sleep.

So, with that...let's chat! :)
