Ahhh MAN!

Well today we find out that the orginal bid that we had from the movers had a much higher estimate for the total weight of our household goods. They had quoted the bid we accepted at 12,000 lbs. In January when the guy was out here he had an estimate much higher than that. Since the company has already paid us for the move, we have to be very careful to NOT increase what we are taking. Soooo in order to actually save $3000.
I get to pack our entire house by myself in less than three weeks. We got rid of one of our refridgerators and we will be selling our deep freeze (cheap) and some other stuff, but for the most part we are keeping all of the furniture. We figure to pack the cars with as much heavy stuff that we can as well. Anyway... I think I am gonna be busy for a while... I ordered 125 boxes online 3 different sizes, plus free shipping for only $221.00. Not too bad. One good thing... we don't have to worry about the trampoline that was included in the orginal bid... so there is about 200lbs. we have saved.

I am sorry to hear that you have to pack yourself. But just do it one room at a time and you will get it all done. Good luck. I will be praying for you.
