    How do people manage to move every few years?

    I am moving at the beginning of August, and I just hate the whole process! Packing, finding places to throw away unwanted junk, things getting broken or lost, having your whole life turned upside down... then there's leaving your old house. I moved here 9 years ago, and although it's very small, and kinda junky, I have a lot of memories here. My new house is much nicer, and much bigger. I also have a nice big garage to work on my car! Not to mention a back yard with privacy.

    Of course, then there's people who move into a house, paint everything that awful greige colour, install a cheap, cookie cutter Home Depot kitchen, sell at an inflated price, and then do it all over again. I can't imagine living like that. I like to live in the same place for a good long while... and I like to live in a home, not just move from one unimaginatively decorated building to the next (Yes, I'm not afraid to admit that today's home interior trends are awful... everything painted some bland, horrible greige colour, not unlike a jail or an unfinished basement... no wonder so many people are depressed!)
    (By the way, my new house has some awful HGTV inspired renos; awful, fake hardwood flooring everywhere instead of carpet, boob lights, and some clown decided it was a good idea to paint the kitchen cabinets! One of the first things I'm doing is stripping that shit down and restoring the wood!)

    Re: How do people manage to move every few years?

    I moved six times in seven years, or maybe it was seven times in six years. It was so traumatizing, I'm not going to count it up again. I have a full house of furniture and lots of peripheral crap.

    Finally bought a house here in town and hope to not move until I retire, if then.

    My sympathies, and congratulations.

    The last time I moved was 13 years ago.




    That reminds me. I need to clear the garage so I can park my car in there.

    Re: How do people manage to move every few years?

    I once moved seven times in four years -- or maybe it was more, and I'm minimizing.

    I now hate moving. It used to seem like an adventure, but now even the thought brings nausea.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    Well, I already think your sense of style has a fighting chance in my books.

    Are you moving at your own will or did the opportunity to stay where you are just come to a close?
    Americans need to keep their guns so they can protect themselves from gun violence just like Nancy Lanza did. And like Chris Kyle did. And like Gabby Giffords did. And like Tom Clements did. And like Michael Piemonte. And Joseph Wilcox.

    I'm moving at my own will. Hah, my landlord might be in trouble though; almost no one will want this place for the insane price he charges for rent... and if they do, they won't want to put up with him for long... he's a fuckin idiot LOL... I could write a book on what I had to deal with over the years

    Simple answer? I don't own much. I'll be moving again soon, so I'm looking forward to the prospect of being back in my own space.

    Re: How do people manage to move every few years?

    I moved last month and while it was a pain it would have been even more so with a lot of things. Everything fit in a small uhaul truck but the worst part was getting the car onto the tow dolly. Next time I get help fuckit. Towing a car is a pain when you arrive in an urban area like Seattle so I unhitched as soon as possible. I had help from the apartment manager moving my stuff in. I think if I move again the sofa will not move - that was a pain to get up here. A futon would work or something you can take apart and easily get into the lift or through doors. Moving every few years might be needed depending on one's job. As I get older, moving is less attractive.

    I lived in the same apartment for 13 years (it was rent controlled and only went up 3% a year and there were no other affordable places) . Then I moved to Florida, rented an apartment for 2 years, rented walking distance to the beach for 3 years, never went in the water once. and I'm moving next month.

    There's an aspect that makes things different: a move into your own space, freeing you from constraints that are a pain. OTOH, I once moved in with 47 other guys and it was a joy, because being alone had become a pain.

    Circumstances change.

In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them.

    Re: How do people manage to move every few years?

    I have moved on average once every two years. I kinda like it. There are houses that i liked better and areas I liked better but all in all change is good. I have learned that we dont need ten gagillion material things. So when i move there is a lot less clutter, plus after I get to the new place I always go for sparse, everything gets thoroughly cleaned, including the place I am moving into.... I dunno i just kinda like it. But I am gypsy.

    Forgot to mention I am moving somewhere that has a heated public pool, so that should be nice.

    Also where I'm moving I can also get a pet if I want. They are also stricter as to who gets in so I shouldn't have any dirtbag neighbors. The girl that was here a few years ago was a nightmare. She was a hooker drug addict who was manic depressive. The guy next door is kind of loud, but he's not home everyday.

    Sucks that you can easily pay $50K in rent in 5 years with nothing to show for it.

    I am in the 98th or 99th percentile, among people who have "a lot of stuff." I was nearly a hoarder in my young adult years, but the rub is that, unlike most hoarders, a SIGNIFICANT part of my hoard has actual value (and some of it has SOMEWHAT HIGH collectors' value), so just bringing in a Dumpster would be throwing an investment - and a secure retirement - away. What I have has been shrinking slowly as I do get rid of stuff. I never tended to keep stuff that would be entirely useless, except for a short while (mostly 1987 to about 1995) when I was recording VHS tapes like a maniac, and subscribing to more stuff than I could possibly read. ALL of the publications have now been sorted into groups, with the intention of putting up year-lots on eBay [EXAMPLE: "The Advocate" gay magazine from 1997 where I might have three issues missing; "In These Times" from 1992 where I might have five issues missing - which is a left wing political magazine, etc.].

    Nearly all of my "hoard" is organized, at least where it's **ENTIRELY** accessible (without having to move "other hoards" out of the way, and I can walk in my house with most of the floor clear, etc.), though a lot of it hasn't been more strictly organized such as into an alphabet, etc.

    For me, moving is the most horrific and complete pain in the ass that one can possibly ever imagine.

    For the past 5 years, my family back home in Singapore has moved so many times that I forget all the postcodes!

    And now, after the last move, I don't have a home to return to (no rooms for me, yay! -_-)!

    I've lived in the same house for 35 yrs., 31 with my husband before his demise. I'm still here. I'm kind of a hermit when I'm not working. You wouldn't believe the crap that has accumulated over all these years. I would like to get rid of alot of it but so much of it reminds me of him it is terribly difficult to toss it.

    I move every 2-4 years... it's not so bad.

    it's a good way to avoid accumulating too much crap.

    3 moves ago, I had so much junk that I just said fuck it -- I kept whatever I could fit inside my car and hired a guy to come and clear everything else out of my apartment rather than having to rent a storage unit.

    No kidding. I see it as another form of unearned income for the landlord.

    I met a guy living out in the forest once. He came to the same realization and decided to do something about it: he was living rent free for five years, but putting away the money he would have spent on rent into an investment account.

    Re: How do people manage to move every few years?

    we're contemplating a move in the next year or two and I'm already at my wits end trying to figure out how to downsize from a good sized three bedroom house into something smaller. I'm thinking of selling everything except things that are valuable to us. We have a Steinway grand piano that we'd like to stay in the family and some other art work that I would never give up. We also have a basement storage area and a garage filled with shit we've accumulated over the years.

    I'm looking forward to the adventure of moving to a new climate but not the actual work that it is going to take to get there. I will say this, I'm hiring movers. I'm too old to be lugging shit to a truck!

    "Roughing it" in the forest with no electric, water, food, internet, TV, Cable, shower,... doesn't sound like a lot of fun to me, not to mention, where are there forests now days where one can just go "live" without someone having you arrested for trespassing/littering/loitering... ???

    it really depends on where you live.

    in the NYC area, for example, the price to own is so astronomically high that in many cases, it's a better financial decision to rent and invest the money your saving (not having to pay property taxes, equipment repairs, upkeep expenses, etc) into your retirement accounts.

    what my parents pay in property taxes alone is about what I pay in rent for a 2-bedroom apartment.

    Re: How do people manage to move every few years?

    I have usually lived in houses I owned for about 10 years; moving was always a pain in the butt. When I came out eight years ago and moved to DC, all I took from the divorce fit into a nice U-Haul (and never again will I rent those junkers but that's another chapter in the book). I lived in an apartment in DC for about three years, purchasing new furniture and such. I didn't realize how much crap I had accumulated until moving into our condo we have now. Our kids were out for Christmas and I put them to work so we could be in the condo by New Years. We moved a U-Haul with the beds and furniture and I figured I could put the closet stuff and storage unit in my car. About 10 trips later, I was done but had thrown out a ton of stuff (like the Christmas Tree that had broken when I set it up).

    When we merged houses we went through all of our stuff and gave bags of clothes and household goods to the Salvation Army. Each year we try to go through the closets (I got rid of the last of my "fat" clothes this year). But if we ever move, I will make sure it is for a job that includes professional moving services because I'd hate to think how much we have in the two bedroom condo and storage unit! Plus the Sebring is now a Mini Cooper so it'll be much smaller! We want to eventually move to San Diego so I think we'd likely try to buy a lot new.

    I have a good priest friend who has a rule that whatever won't fit into his car (he has a Ford Taurus wagon)...it goes. He likes to move light and is pretty frugal.

    Re: How do people manage to move every few years?

    I hate moving! Always stressful. Tons of books, magazines, DVDs to pack. Not useless "crap" that I want to dispose of or could ever replace. I procrastinate and I hate imposing on my friends so I end up overdoing (ending up with a bad back to prove it), then paying movers to do the rest. Good luck! You have my sympathy.

    I do know a few people who move every few years to make sure they don't become too fond of their possessions. They don't have dogs and they don't read books. I couldn't live without either.

    Re: How do people manage to move every few years?

    Well, the junk guys hauled away all my junk today, and I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. It wasn't that much stuff, but it was still nice to get rid of it all. People have been picking through it all day too, and taking things. Unfortunately, someone also ripped open the bags. All over the yard and the street, I found bits of a journal I was keeping in my teens. There was extremely private, personal information in there, and I'm so glad I shredded it before throwing it away. I am still humiliated though.
    Oh well, I threw away my old guitar because it was so cheap... the body was cracked, and the bridge was coming off... someone knocked on the door and asked if they could have it. I thought it was nice of them to ask, and I'm glad it went to a home. It was my first guitar after all. Someone also took a painting... I really liked it, but it was so ratty, and I didn't want to keep it. I placed it in front of the pile facing the street, and I'm glad someone will be enjoying it.
    I am pretty much done packing; my stereo equipment will be going in the car, and whatever I have left unpacked will fit in a duffle bag. All in all, I'm happy to move.

We also have a basement storage area and a garage filled with shit we've accumulated over the years.

    I'm looking forward to the adventure of moving to a new climate but not the actual work that it is going to take to get there. I will say this, I'm hiring movers. I'm too old to be lugging shit to a truck!
    Yea, it's a real pain when you have a lot of stuff. You have a lot of valuable things you need to sell eh? Once it's all said and done, you'll feel less burdened, and you'll have a good chunk of cash in your pocket!

    You know, I wouldn't mind living like that, at least for a little while. Maybe not in the woods, but on the open prairie, just like the early settlers of Saskatchewan. That was an extremely tough life though, and maybe I'm not cut out for that type of thing, but I still think it would be an interesting experience.

    I have moved several times in the past and I know exactly how you feel. I despise the whole process, it’s stressful and traumatic, and as a consequence, I have now adopted a minimalist lifestyle; I try not to accumulate anything I don’t need, that way, when it comes to moving again, I won’t have a lot of stuff to pack up and take with me.

    You'd be surprised. I roughed it for a few years beneath some lovely redwoods, shaved in a creek and all that. Part of me still misses it.

    He had some electricity, in the form of auto batteries charged by friends. Water was no problem; he wasn't far from a nice stream.

    As for where -- just about any national forest allows camping; the only trouble is some have time limits for how long one may occupy a particular place.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    Re: How do people manage to move every few years?

    I've moved 4 times in this past year. It helps that they were all within a 50 mile radius and that my parent's home is within that distance too.

    I put a bunch of stuff in a storage locker and now it is all out and in my own place. The only hard part about moving is the furniture. All the ancillary stuff is easy.
