Things I should have packed…

This page will be a work in progress as I am reminded each and every day of things I should have packed while moving here. To my credit it was difficult to try to pack everything I wanted to bring for an entire year in just 2 suitcases. But there were some basics that really should have been packed… duh! Its not like there are not stores here, I can find almost anything (with the exception of PEANUT BUTTER.) But I would have preferred to have just brought them rather than spending more money on re-buying things I had in the US. Plus I brought a bunch of clothes that have ended up in a bag under our Futon/Bed, since they are more appropriate for the hot Arizona weather I have endured for the last 5 years.

Here is a list of things I should have brought in no particular order:

  1. My white wool peacoat (I debated on bringing it, but felt it took up too much space in the luggage. In retrospect it would have been cheaper to bring another suitcase rather than spend 160 Euros/$200 USD on the same coat here)
  2. My waterproof boots!! It’s freaking wet here!!!
  3. More skirts that look good with leggings and boots.
  4. One of those camping spice containers that comes with many spices (like this)
  5. My favorite movies! These are movies that I can watch over and over and over and never get tired of them. ELF, Christmas Vacation, and Christmas Story (did I mention what a Christmas-Freak I am?
  6. EARMUFFS!!! My ears were so cold, felt like they were going to fall right off yesterday.
  7. A warm hat… brrrr….
  8. Those little handwarmer things

    Bree!!!! Duh you knuckle head never leave a good coat behind lol! Maybe I will bring you a pair of earmuffs when I come 😄

    • Haha 🙂
      I didn’t mention that packing my clothes occurred after days of packing up the entire house to move out… My clothes packing also involved wine. I don’t recommend it to anyone. Don’t drink and drive. Don’t drink and pack.

  2. I’ll bring peanut butter and spices!

  3. I just saw a box with those chemical handwarmer things, maybe at Costco. Is that what you’re talking about? Movies: I can’t rmember if we talked about Hugo.

    • Those are what I was thinking about. However, I have seen reusable ones too that might be good. As long as they don’t require a microwave, cause we don’t have one. 🙂
      Hugo was good too. I’ll ask Luke about any movies he can think of. Love you!!!
