My DH and I have wanted to move back to the east coast for forever, but due to the economy we have put this off. However, we finally feel we've reached a point where we just have to do this and get it done with so we can start living without this hanging over our heads as 'sometime in the future', be closer to family and stop spending tons of money on flights, etc.
We are looking at moving in about 6 months so I'm thinking ahead, but I'm wondering how to do this frugally? This is a very long distance move - we have a lot of secondhand/used furniture that I'm happy to just sell and not look back at, but we have some nice pieces too - but I have no clue whether its worth the cost of moving them or not. We will probably live with family for at least a couple months, so we have to think about where to put everything. We have two cars and will probably plan to drive them out, so Uhauling is a possibility, but even renting a Uhaul truck to pull our sedan runs $3K, plus gas (which looks like it would be about $1K). Has anyone moved a long distance recently have any tips on how to do this without breaking the bank?
