Diary of a Move, Part I

This client informed me last week she's moving. While she loved her old building and didn't mind living in such a small space, this new apt allows her room for a dining table and more importantly, for her grandchildren to spend the night. And a good friend of hers lives in the building.

The move is this friday. What we've done:
- hired movers who will also do most of the packing + unpacking
- filed a change of address with the post office
- contacted her bank, cc's, insurance, and other companies directly to change address
- decided what's going to stay installed in old apt with blessing from landlord; entry shelf, entire window treatment (we cannot use in new apt and for what it cost, not worth taking down)
- did pre-move edit of entire apt
- packed the chandelier and sconce (shown in above pic) to save time move day
- put back original lighting fixtures
- packed up some smaller items to save time + money move day
