The Beaches!! This is where I grew up!

And you said Beaches, not "The Beach" :)

Great apartment.

Does it have to be of your own place? 'Cause Janel's screened in porch picture is of AB Chao's house:

Seems like it should be credited, no?

I loved the little animals on the Mini-Bamba. And I kind of have a crush on the guy who was working their booth on Sunday!

These guys were at Brooklyn Designs this weekend. My roommate's brother made three of the knives in that rack and the fourth belonged to their great-grandmother. Small world.

I move on Saturday and have been packing for a while now. First I was feeling the pros, now I'm just overwhelmed by the cons, especially the "how do I still own this much stuff??" feeling. Grr.

Good luck to everybody who is moving!

My parents have had a Miele for years and I love it. It has most of the same features and pros that you listed here, which is interesting considering that it is about 14 years old! I guess they found a formula that works.

I'm moving soon and decluttering beforehand, so I keep re-reading this to keep inspired :)

Happify, I'd love to hear about your strategies for packing so light!

To add to bep's comment, I think in the US the little hand crank tool is most commonly known as a hex key.

Beautiful and very Swedish (but not generic). Helsingborg is a neat little town and it's cool to see the interior of one of the homes there.

I like the way the apartment is uncluttered and minimal, without looking cold or empty. All the white really works to keep the place bright looking, which I'm sure is especially important during the winter!

Has anybody ever tried dyeing one of the IKEA sofa covers? I have a white Ektorp and thought maybe I could save myself some money and the trip to Elizabeth by dyeing it. Words of wisdom? Thanks!

Great space and the kitchen is wonderful.

Loved the cat jumping off the chair and the hilarious dog!

The repetition on the combined site is annoying!

I'm not doing the Cure, but am hoping this is a good place to ask this question, since I know the Cure involves decluttering!:

I'm moving soon and would like to donate some things - does anybody know of a charity that will pick up donations (not furniture)? Housing Works? Goodwill? I don't live near any place like that and have no access to a car. Ideas much appreciated! Thank you!

Wow, you're all very organised!

I'm usually up until 2am packing the night before I go on a trip.

At minimum, I take out the trash and do the dishes.

I have a roommate, though, who is usually here when I'm not, so that makes it a bit different.

I'll add my vote to following the baking soda and vinegar with boiling water. Done several times in a row I've gotten bad clogs out like that (including hair ones). It also works preventatively.

Thanks for the post - I've been thinking about doing this in my washroom using some of my collection of National Geographic maps.

Still not sure what the best way to hang them and have them stay up despite the humidity will be.
