Moving in with my SO in two weeks and I'm desperate to make sure I don't repeat the mistakes of last move. I accidentally used the shittiest packing tape known to man--this stuff started peeling off the second I got it on the truck. I couldn't trust the bottoms of any of the boxes, so I had to carry everything as if they were untaped.

I've also got more bodies than just me and my cousin to help move the whole thing this time, thankfully. Now I just need to deal with transferring internet (which magically costs 10 bucks more for the same service each move) and pseg (who don't seem to recognize the apartment I'm moving to as a place that exists and has power) and then we're all set.

I hired movers for the first time for all the furniture and heavy stuff when I moved a few weeks ago. They were kind of slow, but it was nice not throwing my back out. Going back and forth moving all the other crap got pretty old, though.

really upset that I'll have to Uhaul but the difference of 1K from a storage pod or 2K from movers is staggering
I'd like to be rich now

My U-Haul costs totaled $29 8-)

Going to keep trying to live like someone who is on the run from the FBI and needs to pull up stakes at a moments notice.

what kind of box packing game do you all have going on? Finna get all mine from the liquor store. Already packed up my energy crystals and homeopathic remedies together in one box. Currently in clearing out shit that's for donations and garbage stage while obsessively lurking the online adds for all the new listings.

I don't really intend to move again unless it's time to buy a house or I relocate for a job

I painted one of these walls with random splashes of blue and green paint and now I'm leaving my painted wall, and the nice wooden flowers and the 2 acres of land

Moving across country and I have just enough furniture that I can't decide whether to take it or leave it.
My possessions:
Large TV
Mattress (queen, Casper ad got me)
Bedframe (simple wire variety)
2 bookcases
maybe 300 books
record player
maybe 10 records i want to keep
rug 8 x 11"
1 recliner
4 folding chairs
2 cat carriers
2 cats
Vitamix
Food processor
2 sheet pans
Other plastic dishes
Clothes
Bicycle air pump and helmet (bicycle died 3 years ago)
Old ass furniture: end table, server, coffee table

And that's it...
Thinking about shipping the clothes and books and putting the cats in the car and leaving the rest.
I don't know why i typed all of that out.

when i moved there was a refugee resettlement group that came and picked up all the big furniture i didn't want to bring with me. they came and hauled it from my second floor apartment. it was a huge relief

I will definitely look into the refugee resettlement thing, that is a great idea.
There is that 1800 JUNK company and they will take anything and triage to goodwill or whatever, but it's actually a little pricey last time I did it.
