Moving: Finding Your New Place

I hate moving. 🙁 I’m sure I’m not alone. What is that saying, “I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy.” Sadly, the chore, task, torture has come on me again. Turning a negative into a positive, I figure I would document my painful ordeal so that others can learn from my missteps. Secondly, similar to bringing down my Alexa ranking via the Yakezie challenge, slowly chipping away at moving will make a monumental task, in my mind, more manageable. Finally, blogging about it might take some of the edge off. If not, poor Mrs. Inspire is gonna have to deal with a very grouchy husband for a month. A grouchy husband makes for a grouchy wife which is never a good thing. 🙂

To get on the same page, let’s quickly review what got us here.

We need more space!
We need it to be affordable!
Let’s shorten the commute!
Let’s find a nicer neighborhood!

We searched high and low using newspapers, magazines, and craigslist. We visited countless homes, cities, and apartments. Nothing was up to par. Finally, we nailed one down using Rent.com. When everything is signed, we’ll even get a $100 cash card for our troubles. Their website was easy to use and provided a lot of details, pictures, and videos. The fun’s only just begun.

“Your mission, Buck, if you should decide to take it, is to move from your old apartment to your new one in a reasonable fashion without driving you or your wife crazy. If you fail, the secretary will disavow any knowledge of your existance. Good Luck, Buck.”

    Start slow and start early! Start with one room at a time and don’t forget to label the boxes and keep a list of what’s in each box. Moving out is only half the equation!

    Mark each box as to where it should go to. The movers hate it when you try to decide where a box has to go while they are waiting with the load!

    Put on some music and have fun doing it!

    Good luck buck!

    I hate moving. Every time we move, we lose something in a process. I hate packing but I love unpacking and decorating. Moving has its pros and cons. And yes, take one room at a time. 🙂 Good Luck!

  3. I don’t mind the idea of moving much, but the actual moving day really suck. Mrs. RB40 really really hate moving, she’d rather go to the dentist!
    Good luck!

    If I was moving a whole house, I’d take the chance to find all the junk you don’t want anymore, and list it on ebay. Keep all the junk separate from the rest of your stuff, so you don’t have to pack junk you don’t really want anyway. Then, any you still have left when you move, take to Goodwill.

    I’ve never tried this myself, since I can’t bear to part with my junk!

      Great idea! Question is, can I execute the plan? I hate parting with junk, too. Dunno, kind of a packrat and don’t even ask about the Mrs. 🙂 Since it’s around the new year, may squeeze it into my resolutions. Less clutter, we’ll see how it goes!
