Or maybe I just surround myself with highly organized women...? (IBcomments that those are unicorns)
This is how my mother is with moving. When we moved from Ontario to BC abut 20 years ago, everything was not only labelled with its contents, and to which room it was going, with a computer printed Avery label, which was fancy for that day and age, but also colour coded with a round sticker. Each room had a colour, and, this is the best part, helium balloons of that colour taped to the wall beside its door. It turns out to have been too well organized, since the movers decided to give up on it, and just put things wherever - though they also scratched, broke, and lost things, so maybe they just sucked. For the next move, there were no balloons, and their destinations were only labelled as downstairs, upstairs, or garage. As I recall, this met with more success.
