We did it. We jammed our possessions into a six foot box and it’s off to Ohio a week before us.
Not only did we do it, we did it crazy fast. We planned for two days to pack and load the cube(s), expecting it to leave on Wednesday. We had everything packed by Sunday.
Today, we rented a u-haul, filled that bad boy up, moved everything to ABF and then unloaded the u-haul and proceeded to fill our cube. We had every intention of using 2 cubes, but we only ended up needing one, which is a great feeling. It probably helps that I am so good at throwing things away.
So since it’s all done earlier than expected, it’ll arrive earlier than expected. Which I guess is a good thing. In the meantime we are camping on an air mattress, eating pizza and playing board games on the floor.
It’s a strange feeling seeing your worldly possessions fit into such a small space. It’s a good reminder that 1. You don’t need a lot to live off and 2. things are just things.
