One of the many things on my moving to-do list is to coordinate the move. Now in the past, we'd rent a truck and bribe a few friends with beer and pizza to help get us to our new home. But that was a long time ago and we're much older and much less inclined to do copious amounts of heavy lifting. So my question to you is:
How do you decide to DIY or hire someone to do it for you?
When is it worth forking over your hard-earned cash to save time, energy and avoid a lot of stress? That's what's churning in my head this morning. The thought of moving our entire house, 2 kids and 2 dogs out of town ourselves doesn't seem terribly appealing. But then the idea of spending $1000 or more for someone else to do it doesn't sound that great either.
If you have any tips on making those thrifty vs. convenient decisions, let me know. Or maybe you know a moving company that will work for coffee and smiles and dog cuddles.
