    Default I should be packing...........

    ...but I've only got 1 box and zero motivation.

    DS2 is asleep on the floor and has been for almost 2 hours. I'm enjoying the quiet but am soooooo bored.

    Do other people do this too? You are so bored but just can't think of anything to do? Or have stuff to do but have no motivation to do it? Or am I just weird?

    Story of my life! When I have a DP day I have all these fun plans and they never eventuate because I end up sitting around trying to get my *** into gear!!!

    Thank goodness LOL!!! I thought I must have been really weird.

    All the housework is done bar one load of washing that needs to be hung up. If I had boxes I'd probably be much more motivated as I need to have it all packed before Friday afternoon but I've no idea where to get boxes from.

    Have asked friends on facebook but no responses as yet. At this rate, I'll have to buy plastic storage tubs or those blue, red and white stripey bags.

    I bought seconds boxes from Kennards when I moved. They were about $2.50/box. Otherwise you could go to woolies, coles etc and ask as they usually have massive docks out the back with all the unloaded boxes waiting to be crushed!

    www.packingboxes.com.au

    www.removalboxestoyou.com.au

    Most companies like Kenards and Storage King will sell or hire them.

    Google and see if there is somewhere close to you that will hire them or buy them back from you when you are finished with them.

    I think Moving Box Company is another one.

    I need to go to uni to drop in an assignment but the thought of unpacking the two boys out of the car and getting them up the stairs and back is painful WAAAH.

    Why can't we submit online!? Why?!

    All storage places sell moving boxes. Some sell 2nds (used)

    I've just reread the OP though and you probably don't want to know where to get boxes from if you are in an unmotivated mood

    I know the feeling well.

    Hahahahaha yeah you're probably right. I'm working with the bare minimum here anyway so it won't take long to pack, I'll probably get it all done on Friday morning, motivation willing, provided I have boxes.
