[Warning: this post contains total first-world problems. Just sayin’]
I’m currently sitting at the dining room table, surrounded by a newly-found pile of books to sell on Amazon, three garbage bags full of clothes to give to Goodwill …and a box or two packed in anticipation for the move in a couple of weeks. And I realize – because sometimes it takes me a while to acknowledge that not everyone in the world is just like me – that not everyone likes to binge and purge before a move.
This I muse over…
Because there are those who like to binge and purge before the move, perhaps, quite definitely creating more work than ever intended. I take pride in my ever-growing Goodwill pile, I’m telling you!
There are those who like to box up all their crap before the move, and then sort through its contents upon arrival in the new abode. (But do they ever actually sort? That is the question).
There are those who rally the troops via a “FREE PIZZA AND BEER!” email, but as the HBH says, I’d rather just be invited over for dinner. He’s over it – but free dinner? Yes, please.
There are those who hire moving companies, and there are those who, with pride, can still pack all of their belongings into one car. Books and clothes, books and clothes! I boasted owning nothing but until about the age of 25.
And then there are those whose moving companies pack and move all the belongings – imagine that, Fancy Pants!
So, what am I missing? What would you add, and most importantly, what kind of mover are you?0
