Most brilliant travel/moving tip ever!

September 13, 2010

Always, always pack your travel mug first. This way, you will not be able to find it when you set out on your journey, and you will have two innovative options: you can buy another mug, or leave home without coffee. Buying coffee is a cop-out. The whole idea is to drink the last cup of coffee you made at your old home on your way to your new home.

I am finding this tip particularly useful because I have been packing in advance of our 350-mile road trip/move for more than a month, so that I will not have to do crash-and-burn packing the final week. My travel mug is important, so of course I packed it early — with other things I thought I wouldn’t miss for 4 to 6 weeks. Why am I bringing things at all if I won’t miss them for 4 to 6 weeks? Let’s just say that I’ve missed my travel mug twice, and my German dictionary once; and that isn’t too bad for 60 boxes so far.

Janet, would you save me one of your Starbucks lids? Do you think it would fit one of my Fiesta mugs?

    Picturing your Fiesta mug in my mind…I would have to say I don’t think so. Remember, I am the *Short* caramel macchiato. Shorts are only 8 oz. and have the little lids. However, I would order a Grande in your honor if you would show up at Trinity to pick it up!
