Last weekend Tiffany came up to Seattle to help me box up my stuff. We weren’t sure what the best method would be to get it all down to LA. We were considering using a moving company (quoted me $1,000), renting a Uhaul (about $300 for the trailer and one month storage unit rent) and UPS. Turns out moving by mail is slightly cheaper than Uhaul AND is way more convenient, both for the person who would of had to drive the trailer down (me) and the Queen of the Castle who can’t sleep until everything is just so (Tiffany).
The first batch of boxes showed up Wednesday. Another batch comes today. Then there’s one final wave before I leave for Alaska. There’s one thing we both have learned from this experience: Moving by mail kicks ass!!!
