What moving looks like

Well I made it!!!! Last Thursday/Friday – I FINALLY got moved out of my condo!!! I really questioned if it was ever going to end because I had SO MUCH stuff! It just kept coming and coming and I really don’t know where it came from!!! I am just one person (with a cat) living in a 978 square foot condo. How is it that I couldn’t fit all my stuff in the largest pod available!!!!! AHHH!!!

I finally got it done though, but wow, it was a lot worse than I expected!!!

I decided to go with a POD because, of course, I was trying to save some money. I was actually happy with the company and how it all worked. I found a code online (big surprise) from which allowed me to save 10% on the original drop off and first months rent. Not a bad deal.  So for the pod drop off, one month storage, and then drop off again at my new house, the total was approximately $300. Well worth it to me! I would recommend using pods to anyone who is looking to save money on moving. I went with the largest pod available 8x8x16 – so if you have a lot of stuff, you may need 2 of these!

Here are some pictures of my moving process and my hotel room.I have 12 more days until I close on my new house! Not that I’m counting or anything 🙂 So in between I’m staying at an extended stay hotel. Its not too bad, but you know, its not home! Here are a few pictures of my room. I had to store stuff here because I just ran out of places to put things! Yes I know I have too much stuff!

Now I’m just waiting until I move, I’ll post more pictures of the new house soon! I can’t wait to show you all my backyard and garden area!
