To make it more fun, everything we decide that we *need* over the next year... needs to be crammed into the tiny room I was demoted to (when I originally moved out) at my parents house... as we will both be moving in with my parents (and 3 siblings) over the summer. Needless to say, that will be an adventure in itself.
I tried to be good and get most of my clothes, toiletries, books out of the house and moved back to my parents the last few days as Sean studied. Once we left for his final today, I started going through our joint stuff and paper stuff in our room and have created a gigantic mess.
Most of the stuff HAS to go into storage. I was thinking of number each box/tote and then writing down what goes into each box. Is that me being overly organized... or will it be useful? I figure, it might be nice in case we decide we need something come January or whenever. Any tips on packing or previous experiences you would like to share?

I wrote a whole novel on our boxes, DH was so mad. I put the name of the room they go in, the person the contents belonged to and the actual contents (ie. summer skirts, hair products, etc)

Men don't really know how to move IMO. FI got so mad when we moved in. I too am a compulsive labler. Note that he still has boxes of who knows what in our basement that have been down there for almost 6 years!

also becky, with regards to all your paper stuff -- have you already started a file of documents that you will eventually need when it comes time to file for sean's greencard?

As far as clothes go, whenever I move I go through my wardrobe and get rid of anything I don't absolute love and wear, doesn't fit, is worn or torn and the same goes for the FI (although he seems to think that some of the T-shirts he wore in college to workout in are still 'good' as he calls them...). We donate it all and it feels good to look at your closet and know that everything in it I love.
I try to keep that mantra when shopping too and it puts things in perspective when the thrill of the shop gets to me.
