What do you wish you'd packed?

    With Bishops Move collecting our boxes (we are only sending over approx 50 cft in boxes) on Friday I was wondering what if anything you guys that are living it had wished you'd packed but didnt.

     

    I dont mean big things like cars - as we are very limited to space - but any gems would be appreciated.

    It's personal choice really, i don't think there was anything that I wish I had in my suitcase. The only thing I would say is don't take too much hand luggage on the plane, you just won't need it!

     

    I know you don't have much to bring in the first place so I am sure you will be fine.

    We put cd players etc in our hand luggage cases so we knew it wouldn't be thrown around. Wish we had more tools sent over, husband sold them all at a boot sale thought we could rebuy them, but they quite expensive here and not very good quality, we spent about half an hour deciding on a screwdriver!

    A few days after the packers left we realised my lovely big clock was still on the wall! Its still there now!

    Wish we'd put loads of Argos reclining sunloungers in the container - can't get anything nearly as good here (and believe me, I have looked!!) - in fact, if you have any spare space can you bring me some over please??? They're too bulky to ask visitors to bring them, or to bring them back from UK visits, so while you have the container is the only option!!

    fishing gear, all the motor bikes, in fact everything. Don't believe the hype, its cold in winter and warm in summer...... but i mean its COLD in winter in the house.

     

    I think tools are getting cheaper at the moment as are electrical things like TV's etc. WHen we came you struggled to get a plasma under 2K, now you can get them well under 1K.

     

    The more you bring, the less cost set up you have, if you use it it in the UK then you will use it over here.

    Now for suitcases, those little silly kitchen utensils that you take for granted everyday, pack them!!!!

    I wish we had bought a really nice outdoor furniture set as they are either horrid and cheap or nice and expensive, bet you could pick a really nice one up in the sale in the UK now its winter there!

     

    Kitchen utensils.... they seem to be very badly made out here!

     

    Make-up is much cheaper in the UK, so stock up!

     

    Good luck with the move x

    Wasn't implying your husband is a girl at all, was merely pointing out that us men only take 30 mins to pick the right tool ;) If Tina goes shoe shopping, it takes all day!! then at the end of the day we go back to the first shop we went to and purchase the shoes she tried on first :arghh::biglaugh:
