I will be moving in just under 2 months. The area I am moving to is more expensive for quite a few things but I found out today that schooling will be almost $2,000 a year cheaper for me, which I am ecstatic about.
I have started to pack some items and have been getting ruthless and asking myself "Do I really want to move this?"
I moved here to Sydney from Canberra almost 3 years ago. I have culled a lot of my stuff, but I look at some of it and I know I do not want to move it again.
I have listed a fair bit for sale on eBay, GumTree and Facebook which has been good and the money has helped. However, I am now at the point I just want things gone. If I am not moving it, I want it out of my house.
I have given stuff away and while some of it has been worth a lot, it has been such a relief to just get rid of stuff that it really does not matter to me what I could have sold the items for.
I'll be moving rather cheaply. I have packing boxes and tape already. I am not moving anything unless it is 100% essential and I need to move it and I am not hiring a big removal company when there are cheaper businesses like Man With A Van.
I am very excited about the move. Do you have any tips to make it easier?
