"I hate moving smart people" - a quote from a fellow teacher friend of our's when we moved to Manhattan. Yes Matt & I have a lot of books. We have donated some and recycled some; but we still have plenty to move!
Growing up I remember moving from two houses and we used the team effort. Being married I have also moved twice, three if you count me moving my stuff to Matt's apartment when we got married. Every time I have moved we have filled cars/trucks up and taken multiple trips because they have always been within the city we lived in. When Matt and I moved from Wichita to Manhattan we actually rented a Uhaul truck! My parents packed up the last few articles in their truck and brought them up a few weeks later.
This move is different. Pennsylvania is a good 19 hr drive from Manhattan, so that means a bigger truck is needed! We have spoke with a friend who owns a moving truck company. Mr.B came to our apt today to see how much stuff we have packed into our 800 sqft apt! We will be receiving a quote within the next few days. I am going to continue to pack items we are not using on a daily basis or donating items we are not going to take with us; doing this will save us some money. I am specifically packing our breakable items so that if anything happens to them I can only blame myself!
