I did a lot of calculating, and even if we get a nice apartment, it is cheaper to rent in the new area. So, we're looking forward to being in an apartment long-term, which should actually be a GOOD thing, since we take up so little space, and it means so much less maintenance (so, even more family time
The only part of the move I'm worried about is that we have stuff in our attics. One has things we are going to eBay. It's stuff we've already committed to selling, grouped it into how it is to be sold, and chosen boxes, so it WILL be sold, just when is the issue. It's at least a couple of thousand dollars worth of stuff, or I definitely wouldn't even be thinking of moving it. Plus, there's my DD's old stuff in the attic, and we plan on having another one. I am torn about what to do with the old baby stuff, it seems silly to give it away just to have to buy it again since we are TTC right now!
We have the goal this year and next year, of going completely paperless. I want to scan in all the old documents and pictures. It will be a big task, but I think it will be totally worth it, especially since it's my husband's job to file, but he hates it and doesn't do a good job which always causes arguments at tax time (taxes are my job).
