We're moving to Vallejo. For about the same rent, we're tripling our living space. But there's a lot to do to make it happen.
The first time I ever moved, I brought as little with me as possible.
The second time I moved, it was across the country, and I only moved what I could fly with or ship.
The third time I moved, I only had to pack a studio apartment worth of stuff.
This time is very different.
I can hardly believe the logistical complexity facing my partner and me. There's a long list of things we have to do, and there's a particular order that they have to happen in. That's on top of me working, her attending school online, and oh yeah, we had like a record number of U.S. COVID cases the other day.
But there really isn't any alternative. We've shared this 450sqft 1-bedroom for three years, and after months of shelter-in-place, it's obvious we're completely out of space.
no idea if this is helpful in your case, but last time we moved and had no idea how to bring all our stuff that far (cross-country in the EU) we ended up doing this:
- pallet: $15
- packaging materials: $15
- shipping $200
it seemed very scary when we first considered it, but putting a pallet together is actually pretty easy :)
