Small change in moving plans that makes my heart lighter
I’ve cancelled the international movers. I’m putting my things into storage here instead. Ema made a good point and that is that the cost and balagan of moving everything overseas for somewhere between 12-24 months and moving it back again would cost a lot more than just putting it into storage here. If it turns out that it looks like I’ll need to be in the U.S. for longer than that then in the spring I’ll go ahead and arrange for it to be shipped.
This is a relief in many ways. With my things here, half of me is still here 🙂 It also takes care not only of the fridge and washer/dryer removal from the apartment but means that if I move back within that time frame I won’t have to re-purchase new ones.
So now, the mover is coming on the 21st to shlep my stuff to a storage facility in Jerusalem. Out of all the places I called, Century Storage seems to be the best place by far in terms of getting your stuff out of storage in good condition.
