Looks like we are going to have to sell off some crap before we move! I spent most of yesterday getting moving quotes and trying to find online rental homes for my research.
So far I have estimated our moving expenses to be about $6000-$8000 but it could in all actuality cost up to $10,000 if we don’t pair down crap and really search out those bargains!
This means coming to terms with the reality of having to get rid of tons of stuff before we move. We have to becasue moving it all is just too dang expensive… The full service moving quotes I have received are for things like 900 cubic feet or say a 12 foot truck.
I suck at geometry and am just guessing our 3 bedroom home and a shed full of crap wont fit into a moving truck that size… *sigh*, so now reality sets in. We have too much crap and need to get rid of it Hotfessional style.
So what is the next step? I am delirious with thoughts and can’t figure out what I should do next.
- Must wait till 30 before move to put application on a new rental home.
- Must wait till rental home is ours to book moving company (they want rental home address).
- Must wait till rental home is ours to set up utilities and do change of address.
Basically that leaves me with packing crap and cleaning our current rental home huh? It is time to get rid of some crap me thinks but I cringe at the idea of a yard sale (thanks to Hotfessional‘s horror stories and my general dislike of people). Oh, well! Suck it up Talina and makes some piles of stuff to sell!
*whines* Mommy… will you come help me have my first yard sale? Pretty please?
