    Please make a thread on it.
    Serious. Share it all including the miserable stuff both lost and found broken.
    Why?
    There are people who when you describe a personal problem to they chirp out..."move" like its simple and easy.
    You should move...lol

    Couldn’t imagine moving. Watching the wife and kids load stuff up, to go camping is painful enough. More chit that you could ever dream of.

    Moved a year and a half ago and OMG........BRUTAL!!! Have someone move the big stuff they said so I did. Well, what I found out was that the big stuff would have been easy peasy compared to the mountain of un-ending boxes that seemed to multiply by the day. Don’t fall for that the small stuff is easy bs!!! It was absolutely brutal moving what I would estimate to be 9,769 boxes in and out and up and down stairs!!

    F Moving!!!!! Never again for this dude!!!!

    Definitely have a give it away sell before the move and clear out as much chit as possible. You have already lost some stuff and you don't even know it yet.

    I have lived in the same house for 35 years. Not only am I not moving, I keep building or buying more barns and garages. It isn’t possible to have too much space.

    When we moved outta North County 5 years ago we got rid of as much of everything as possible and we still are boxing stuff for Goodwill

    we didn’t have furniture for 2 weeks except a rocking chair,my office chair, a bed and a tv we brought with us

    learned real quick....when it came to getting new stuff....we were 2 weeks from “civilization” LOL

    Regardless of the number of smalls etc....best thing we ever did

    There isn’t enough dynamite to get us outta here,while not 40 acres, it still is a great place to live and we are blessed with really good neighbors

    Once you are in and the “gotta get moved” craziness slows down, I am sure you won’t really care about all the crap you brought with you and can take your time to unpack

    Welcome to the good life
