My sister and brother-in-law just bought a house and it tore my heart out that we weren’t there to share in the excitement and help them move. I wanted to send something small to them that would arrive on move in day.
I grabbed a container at Michael’s, that was a few bucks with a coupon. It looks like a paint can and I purposely bought this one because it can be re-used as great storage.
I then grabbed a few things at Home Goods: a dish towel, candle, hand soap and then picked up some Gobstoppers (her addiction) and a few vodka nips so they could make a few drinks upon their move in! The scrubby thing wouldn’t fit in the bucket so I just kept it for us.
I stuffed the bucket with some of that shredded paper and filled it with the goods. Now, if I was local and not needing to ship this I would have added other things and probably made it a lot bigger. But I didn’t want to make it so heavy that it cost me 50 bucks to ship, so just a few things. And really, the bigger joy is getting mail at your new house. Right?!
