Talk to Us Tuesday-The Alcoholics Are Moving In

Monica: Honey, that’s a great idea nailing your boxes to the floor !
Chandler: I didn’t nail my boxes to the floor.
Monica: Oh so you can move them !-Friends

  • I feel like I’ve been MIA from the bloggy world. I haven’t written a decent journal entry in awhile. It’s been crazy busy around here.
  • Our loan was officially approved today, and we’re down to the last final weeks of this process. We’re a full week ahead of schedule! That means we could be home owners as early as November 7th. Two weeks baby!
  • My life for the past few days has been nothing but packing and cleaning. I’m so ready for our Oregon trip this Friday and vacation!!
  • Do you know it’s damn near impossible to find boxes in this town? All the stores are super stingy about them. With the exception of the liquor store.
  • So now most of our boxes look like this:


  • Just wait till the new neighbors get a load of us. Great honey, the alcoholics are moving in next door! πŸ˜‰


    Since I live in a college town, liquor moving boxes are standard. So happy you are getting your house! The next two weeks will fly by!


    So exciting that is is moving fast!

    Sounds like trying to get boxes from my town, you can only get them from the liquor stores.

    Yep, I used liquor store boxes too. I even dug them out of the dumpster. I’m not proud. I did what I needed to do.

    But I also had to BUY some big ones. I wasn’t a fan of that but I kept those bad boys. They’re in the attic.

    YAY for a vacation! I’m excited that you get to go home for a little while. You’ll have fun!

    Thanks for linking up! You’re the BEST! We’ll catch up on the phone soon. =)


    Woo hoo, you’re almost homeowners…awesome! And I’d LOVE to see new neighbours moving in with boxes like that! haha!!

    YAY! So excited for your new house!

    Love those boxes!

    At least they’ll think you are health-conscious alcoholics. The majority of those beer boxes are Light versions! :o)


    congrats on the house! You should keep the boxes as part of your furniture. Then the neighbors would really talk πŸ™‚


    A box is a box! Most of the boxes around here are picked up at Sam’s and are the booze boxes.

    Just don’t check the trash barrel, that where all the tequila bottles are… doh!


    that is so great! exciting stuff coming your way!!

    when you move, are you moving yourselves or hiring a mover? when i moved i also used those big rubbermaid tubs and would bring a load, unload, bring back (for stuff that i was moving over)… i also used a bunch of those reusable totes (like from trader joes–again for stuff that i brought over) in addition to boxes.

    so many wonderful wishes coming your way πŸ™‚


    Haha, we used liquor boxes almost exclusively for our move, too. I think it’s pretty common.
    Good luck packing up! You’re lucky things are ahead of schedule. I know that’s so encouraging. I can’t wait to see what you do with the place to make it home!

    Seriously Shawn

    Those boxes are great, I say give ’em somethin’ to talk about!

    Thanks for linking up in the midst of your craziness!

    I know you are so excited for your trip and your move! You have so much going on!!! can’t wait to hear all about it!



    At least your life has been interesting!!! You better share stories about your neighbors and how you guys get along there. πŸ™‚

    I’m just impressed you found boxes! I’ve always ended up moving with trash bags, or throwing everything in pillow cases. Don’t judge! lol


    Yeah, I’m moving too, and when I complain about needing boxes, everyone says “Liquor store.” Firstly, as you said, I don’t wanna look like a lush. Secondly, those suckers are small. I finally told NonBF that I’d use them if he could figure out how to pack a lamp in them. He rethought things after that. Luckily, my stepdad is a manager at WalMart. Lifesaver, that man.

    You just got the Liebster Blog Award! πŸ™‚

    Myya Says...

    Liquor boxes are awesome, they are super thick & sturdy! LOL

    Moving is a pain in the ass though!!! Wish you the best of luck on your move πŸ™‚


    Yay for the loan being approved and getting closer to your own home! When we were moving last year, my neighbor gave me boxes from her work which happened to be the gyno’s office– so I was carrying around vaginal creme boxes… oh it was pleasant. hah.


    I always get my moving boxes from liquor stores! They always are giving them away for free! plus I figure they can hold lots of heavy books because of all the booze they hold!

Your comments make my day!
