Instead of using a traditional moving service, I went for the pack-it-yourself storage pods. I'd have to say that it saved me about 60% on the move from Virginia to Arizona, and that includes going out and hiring moving guys to do the actual grunt work with the boxes and furniture.
This morning the pods arrived in Phoenix, looking sharp. The guys I hired showed up a few hours later (as planned), and jumped all over getting them emptied out.
Two hours later, they're gone, and I'm getting ready to set up my bed!
I'll sleep in a real bed tonight!
My Real Bed!
The air mattress was Ok, but after two weeks, I'm ready to be more then 8 inches off the ground.
Time to put the bed together (and screen off the underside of the box spring to keep Skitz from hiding up there). Then I think I'll take a shower and maybe, just maybe a nap!
Actually this really means, that I am a Pod Person, No More!
(of course now I have a ton of unpacking to do, and a nasty job offer that might interfere with that. Of course if I get a job, then I won't have to feel guilty about replacing the Futon and Comfy Chair that I let go back in Virginia... Boy that's a tough one.
