Stuff Everywhere!

3 Dec

Quick update: I’ve come down with a cold (ugh, worst timing) and also I had waaay overestimated how quickly we’d be able to unpack. We need to buy some more storage for the main bathroom and buy a wardrobe system for the bedroom so we have somewhere to put our clothes.

Sorry about the crappy photos, but we’d been unpacking for several hours before it occurred to me to take some photos for posterity.

Living room:

Our desks don’t fit, not even in an L formation. =(

IMG_5009The bedroom looks surprisingly OK but what you can’t see is that all three wardrobes are also full of boxes.

The TV room and second bathroom are both pretty neat but the main bathroom has toiletries everywhere because whoever designed it apparently decided that no storage was necessary.

According to the movers we hardly have any stuff compared to most people, but looking at it all it sure feels like we have a lot! It’s going to take until the weekend at least to sort everything out. =(

    My partner just got recruited for Amazon in the tech department too! We like you m, making the move from Melbourne. We head over soon for a June start. Would love to pick your brain about a few things pleeeeeease!!

    Is it easer to find fully furnished apartments/houses?

    Or is it easier to pack up our house of big things ready to be shipped?

      Hey! You can find fully furnished apartments but they’re only really intended for temporary stays. You definitely will want to bring stuff over – Amazon pays for the packing and shipping and they’ll put you up in a fully furnished place until it all arrives.
