We rented a 20 x 20 storage unit about 50 miles away from our home for the better rate and luckily decided to get it a couple months before we left so we could do several phases of trips. The first weekend Kharron did 3 trips and used a man at the Uhaul office to help lift everything. Having a baby has made it very difficult for me to help out in these types of tasks. We got rid of things we didn’t need for the next couple months like my daughter’s bunk bed that she’s too young for, the extra chairs for our dining room table, …. We also unfortunately moved items we did need; the nail gun, the staple gun, hammer, drill.
Another weekend after Azalea’s 3rd birthday we moved some large items like our patio furniture and the electronics cabinet for under the TV.
Then a couple of days before we left we did the big move of the rest of our house. Kharron’s brother luckily helped out and my friend Katelyn did us a big favor and watched Azalea for most of the day while I supervised the Tetris session. Kharron said several times, “Its not all going to fit.” so I was on high alert that we were going to stack high and make this happen. After a long game, it did all fit and I did a happy dance to have that part of the process completed.
