Hey everyone! I always share about all the right tips to help you move and get organized. Today I wanted to share a moving blooper with you. My husband and I both have our cars in Rhode Island packed and ready to drive. Like I have discussed in my previous posts, our cars are filled with our most valuable items:my wedding dress, purses, jewelry, and of course our bags of clothes and toiletries to live out of for about a month. The last things that we had to jam in our cars were all of the liquids the packers wouldn’t pack. The packers left us some boxes for this.
What I haven’t told you is since my husband travels so much for work, he collects hotel soaps, shampoos, conditioners, lotions, etc. Basically anything the hotel will give you for FREE during your stay. He collects them each night he stays in a hotel. Multiply this by TWO years and that is the amount we have collected. I told my husband that he is a hoarder-but he would argue otherwise. These soaps are in our guest bathroom. We often get compliments on our wide variety from our guests. This also saves us money so we don’t have to provide soaps for guests.
So back to the blooper, my husband and I were trying to get ready to drive our cars out of the apartment parking deck earlier. He was re-arranging some boxes in his car for the drive. He was trying to get a box to fit behind his driver seat, and he was growing frustrated. He continued to jam the box in this tight space causing the bottom of the box to get squeezed by the backseat and driver seat. All of a sudden, a flood of the precious soaps and hair products that he had been saving were flowing out the bottom of the box. Unluckily, they were not just falling out, but falling on the parking deck ground and under the car. My husband was in panic and started trying to wiggle the box up and out which caused the rest of the contents to fall out. This was what we were left to clean up.
We were able to recover the box and use tape to refold and sturdy the box. It took us about 15 minutes to crawl around the group and pick them up all and re-pack the car. My husband was so happy we were able to re-cover them. They were undamaged and my husband is a very happy man. The weekend has been saved!
I would love to hear any funny moving bloopers that you all might have had along the way. Please leave me your stories here. I can’t wait to read them!
