Moving? Check This Out.

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 5:00 PM
My husband brought up a good point the other day. Our house is being taken over. Not by the kids and toys but by stuff. We both hate clutter so we've been looking for storage unit rentals to help us out since both the garage and attic are becoming too full to handle.
I donate as much review products that I can when we're done using them but somehow this blog has taken over the house. I love every part of my job but holy wow, something has to be done.
It made me think about maybe we just need a bigger house and then I found this cool infographic.

Enjoy :)

Are you going through a move right now? We have actually used Uncle Bob's in the past and they were so wonderful to work with. Plus, they let you use one of their moving trucks for free so you can move your stuff in and then again when you're ready to leave your unit!

I despise moving. We have clutter too and I am going to have a huge sale come spring.

I really hate moving, (we'll be doing it again within the next 2 years) - I'll have to remember Uncle Bob :)

I like moving. It's nice to start fresh sometimes.

Vanessa Coker said...

Ah neat! We're planning on moving soon and now with baby in toll I'm sure we'll need all the help we can get.

Moving is awful before you even start  lol

I hate the actual moving...but I LOVE being a new house and starting fresh. 

I moved this past spring though, and absolutely adore my new place. So maybe I'll stay put for a while. 

*I personally don't agree on the point of buying boxes. Save your money. They can be had for free.

I sell Real Estate and I'm always looking for ideas for folks and information like this. Thanks for posting.

I hate moving too!  Once every ten years or so is all I can take.

Moving is hell!  I dread even thinking about it.

Ugh I hate moving too! The ONE last time we move it will be out of Vegas to whatever state we choose to settle in :)

What an awesome graphic!

Brandy said...

I hate moving... but we've done it. Cross-country, too! We packed a u-pack truck and had a driver take our things from California to Illinois! We know all about storage units, too, as we packed our lives into a boxed unit before moving to Europe as well... ah!

Interesting info! We moved from Wisconsin to North Carolina last year and we used full service movers--so glad we did!

Pixiedeals said...

As a military family we move - a lot!! we are due to move again soon and I need to start clearing out again.

April said...

We just moved in September!! So many things are in play when this is happening!

We're moving right after this baby is born. So, in addition to packing and cleaning, I'm nesting. Anything not nailed to the floor might go out to the trash!

That infographic is so cute! I've never moved really. I went from my parents house into the one I'm in now - and only had clothes to bring! Kind of boring, huh?

Ashley Capps said...

We've moved 10 times in 5 years, and we finally bought a house! So glad to be done with moving!

Zipporah Sandler on January 15, 2012 at 11:00 PM said...

Ugh, I've moved more times - every 2 years growing up and then close to that when I got  married. I hate it.

Miranda Welle said...

I know how you feel.  I keep telling my husband we need to add on because we have too much "stuff".  My goal is to get rid of some of the clutter before baby number 4 arrives in a couple months!  LOL.

Jenzen69 said...

I am actually moving the end of Feb. so i will look into this. Thanks

Virginia Higgins on January 17, 2012 at 1:58 PM said...

That's cool.  We donate a lot, too.  I've told Hubs the only way I am moving is if the two story down the street goes up for sale, and then I am paying movers.  LOL.

Lindsay O. said...

I will def keep them in mind when we move this summer! Well first DH has to decide where the heck we are going first! Lol
