Solutions for People Who Hate to Move

Finding a new home is much cause for celebration. After weeks of open houses, negotiations and lining up financing, you breathe a sigh of relief knowing you have a new place to live. The euphoria can rapidly evaporate when you start considering all the work it is going to take to get you and your belongings from where you are to where you are going. When you were a student, moving might have meant calling your friends, renting a U-Haul and ordering pizzas for the crew. But if you have been in your current location for some time and have accumulated furniture, décor, tools, wardrobe, sports equipment and the like, the job grows in complexity, especially if you also have to prepare your current real estate for market.

The Downsizer’s Dilemma

Now I think that I’ll be moving to a condo
And the floorplan shows the rooms as rather small
Yes I know I must decide
What I can fit inside
That’s all, that’s all?

There are those who have told me, forget it
Don’t downsize. Just move all that you own
All I’d need are 15 storage lockers
And a bank that would float me a loan

There’s the bedroom suite with 7 matching pieces
And the breakfront that goes up against the wall
But if they are gonna fit
There’ll be no place to sit
That’s all, that’s all?

There are those who will doubt I can do it
Squeeze 10 rooms full of stuff into 3
But unless I can keep my possessions
I’m afraid I just wouldn’t be me

If you think that I am destined to be crowded
That the things I love still hold me in their thrall
I’ll give them to Sally Ann
And not the moving van
That’s all, that’s all
