We've lived in our current place for 3 years but it's such a closet that moving has been pretty easy because we couldn't get anything to fit inside.

Now we are moving to a 2nd floor apartment, off the ground floor so we can keep the blinds open because people can't just see in, it's pretty large and it wasn't furnished so we don't have shitty ikea furniture and I'm an ADULT!

I just spend 8 hours taking apart my enormous recliner couch so I could fit it through the tiny half-sized door to the basement, and put it back together down there.

At least half of those hours were me holding the couch up with one hand and forcing in screws with the other, the entire time hoping that the couch isn't going to slip and crush me to death.

Now I'm fully reclined, spending the morning watching movies in the cool basement entertainment room we set up.

Movin' ain't so bad, everyone.

i'm going to have to move soon. i found my roomate on craigslist and thought I was just going to finish a sublet. two years later i'm still here. I like it enough and he travels enough. I feel my living habits may be grating him though.

I hired movers for my heavy shit. I showed them my apartment, went across the street to grab a coffee, by time I got back they had cleared everything and were already on the way to the house.

It was humbling and amazing and I'm probably gonna hire movers any time I move from now on.

We were supposed to have 10 days between closing on the new house and our lease ending on the rental, so we were going to have movers do some of it, but a lot would just be throwing stuff in the car and driving it over to the new house. Then our closing got pushed back a week, so now we're packing the entire house for the movers and it suckkkkssss.

just called the confirm my moving truck, schedule my utilities to be shut off, have my prescriptions transferred. the refugee resettlement place is coming to pick up most of my furniture on friday since i'm too lazy to deal with moving it myself. i'm moving next thursday. i've lived in this area my whole life so i kind of feel like i have no idea what i'm doing right now. i'm mostly packed at least

i hope the apartment i signed a lease for sight unseen isn't a disaster!

I'm moving in two days to a different country but I'll only take a couple of bags filled mostly with clothes. All the rest of my stuff should stay here with my brother until he also needs to find a new place.

Since we moved just like half a mile away we luckily didn't have to get rid of any books, I just put them all in a travel backpack and did like 5 runs of books or whatever. It was heavy as hell, but I got to be both cheap and lazy

books and records. I'm never moving again.

We took 18 banker boxes full of books to my in-laws last week ahead of our move. I have 1800 records to pack this weekend - we're moving on June 30, but there's so much to do it's making me anxious and keeping me up at night.

I wish I had enough money to pay for one of those all in one packing/moving companies. I'm sure it's worth the cost, but I can't justify with all of the other expenses we're looking at.

I used to move a few times a year with no stuff so in my mind it wasn't that bad. But my latest move I had stuff, and it was awful. We even spent $4K on movers and it was still horrible. You don't realize how much of a hoarder you are until you need to touch it all.

And then when it's all done you get to sleep on an air mattress for a week before your stuff arrives and they wreck your couch in the move. Never again.
