downsizing and the fun of a major move

Our move required us to downsize.
It's something that I was excited to do.
I've been meaning to reduce, reuse, and recycle, but lacked the motivation to get it done.
There's nothing like going from a 3 bedroom (with walk-in closets), 2 full baths, a full basement, one car garage, and attic storage to a 2 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom house to force the issue.

Our moving company provided an unpacking service for us. It was both a blessing an a curse.
They literally place items on the nearest flat surface and remove boxes/packing materials.
There was not a clean surface in sight on day 1.
These pictures don't do the drama justice.

 My goal for day 1 was to get the kid's room squared away.
It ended up safe and functional at the end of day one. All glass items and breakables were removed (or placed out of reach), and the closet was organized. 

I managed to also get the living room pulled together enough to function.
