For this go around, Mac and I have decided on a partial DITY move to relocate all of our stuff. DITY is basically the do-it-yourself moving option. We are moving the majority of our everyday stuff in our cars: clothes, TVs, computers, books, and the like. The movers are scheduled to come and pack up all of the big stuff that we’re putting in storage: furniture, kitchen wares, and the other items we really won’t need while he’s gone.
|Clearly, we should just do this instead.|
We won’t get the full financial benefit of a full DITY move (you can potentially make a lot of money depending on how you do it), but we will have the perk of professional movers doing the heavy lifting. I just moved up to 12 pound dumbbells, no way I’m carrying a dresser down a flight of stairs. We’re starting the purge, as well. We’ve already decided to trim the fat and get rid of items we realistically don’t need to keep (and pay to keep in a storage unit).
Who else has done a DITY move? Any advice?
