In continuation to the post I wrote about a month ago, about organising house seeking through bullet journal and since we decided which house to rent, this month we have to organise the move and once again my bullet journal comes in handy!
To begin with, we decided that we are not going to move the furniture ourselves, but we are going to hire a company. My husband initiated the process of getting offers and I started taking the notes. The result was a page in my journal similar to the one of the houses:
But the most imporant and fun task of the move is the “decoration”. Even the previous times we moved, my husband and I used the layout of the new house and the current furniture in appropriate scaling, so as to decide where everything will go. It is a funny procedure, but it proves itself to be brilliantly useful and important!
I could have used my bullet journal for the whole of this procedure, but I have an A5 size notebook (the Filofax Clipbook in a bright red). We wanted to have a bigger sized layout of the new house, so as to be able to play around with the furniture. So the actual plan was done outside my bullet journal, but the inventory of our furniture is now part of my journal. I also note the important questions we have to solve before the moving company comes to collect our things.
For the plan of the house we used the layout we got from the agency and the area the different furniture will occupy. I created the two-dimensional footprint of our furniture by taking into consideration the scale of the layout of the house. And the result was this:
Isn’t it cute and funny? We can move the furniture around and try them around in the different rooms, so as to check our alternatives already!
