We're moving from here shortly and heading off to... well, destination unknown, really. We have a vague idea and know we'll be in NY state but we're not certain what town we'll be in. We'll probably be doing an extended stay hotel until we find a house (we have several that look promising) and then depending on how long the closing process is, we'll either just be staying in the hotel or we can go stay with a friend or relative in the meantime. We have our stuff from our old house in storage and that will be shipped to us when we have a house.
The only problem is that we have some stuff here that we have accumulated over the past year. Not a lot of stuff - it actually fits comfortably in two of those (larger) Rubbermaid containers. If I left a few things out it would fit in one. They would have easily fit in our SUV but we downsized to a Civic and with the car seats, cat carrier, litter box, clothes, my husband's computer, etc. - there's no way we could fit even one of these babies in the car, never mind two.
I'd ship them, but I dunno - how do you ship a Rubbermaid container? Would I have to repack in a box? And we don't have an address to ship to unless we send it to a relative and then re-ship once we had an address but it would cost a bit, I'm guessing... I guess we COULD just leave them all behind but I really don't want to - the kids have some toys they got really super-attached to, I got some kids' books shipped from overseas at a decent price, this little cupboard thing I found at the thrift store and fell in absolute love with, a quilt I made a few months ago... etc.
