WOW! I cannot believe that it is February 4th already. We are in full on packing mode at the moment. ONLY 18 DAYS LEFT UNTIL THE MOVERS ARRIVE! We are trying our best to use only recycled boxes and packing materials and so far the only thing we have had to buy is tape. There are 3 motives behind our madness for this and they are as follows.
1. This is a VERY expensive move and we are trying to save money. So far so good.
2. We really think it is a shame when boxes that are in perfectly good condition just end up on the curb.
3. We are moving to a remote island... we need to be conscious of our waste from now on. The island is only so big and we need to add as little as possible to the land fill.
We are only using recycled plastic bubble wrap for only the most delicate of objects. It's important to take the least amount of non-biodegradable materials with us. Otherwise we are using paper for all of our packing. We bought a paper shredder and that makes for graet cushioning around those fragile pieces.
