When Was the Last Time You Moved?

Recently, I've been remembering my college days when I had to pack up and ship out after each Spring semester. I'm so glad to be staying put for a while; I personally think moving is one of life's biggest headaches. Tell me, when was the last time you moved?

I just moved over this last weekend. My muscles ache, there are boxes everywhere, the a/c is temporarily out in our new place - but I really, really hope we stay here awhile.

I just settled on my new house in April. We still have dozens of unpacked boxes in the house, the garage is full of furniture and boxes that haven't made it into the house, and we just emptied our storage unit of everything we plopped in there when we put our old house on the market, which made things 300 times worse. I never want to move again.

We did a cross county move from OH to CA last summer. It was torture. But I really shouldn't be complaing. My hubby and my dad ( and their brothers) packed up everything and drove it out in a big rented Budget van, and I flew out. I know it seems like I got the easy end of the bargin, but I was preggers and the stress of moving coupled with driving 4 days across the country would have been a little much ; )

since i moved out of my mom's house in 2001, i've moved 8 times!! i am going to move again in August. i really hate moving but there always seems to be something wrong with the building, like i am forced to move because of renovations or it is too far from university...then i went on a school exchange and a long trip, so i put my stuff in storage. i am hoping the next place is good enough to stay in for the next 2 years at least! i hire movers but they always take a long time and damage things. i wish i had access to a truck like through the car co-op i used to be a part of so my roommie and i could move ourselves.

I've moved a lot since I got married 10 years ago. About 8 times in 10 years. I dread the packing and unpacking but the house hunting is fun! I hope I don't have to move again in a long time I really love our current townhouse!

I moved about 4 years ago and we're looking for a new place right now. I'm actually looking forward to moving so I can get rid of a bunch of stuff and do some decorating and start from scratch. I'm weird like that.

I last moved 18 years ago. I don't plan to move again any time soon -- at least not in the next 2 years or so.

I moved into this place 2.5 years ago but I'm packing up right now for a move next month. I'm not looking forward to the moving process but my new apartment is a definite upgrade!

We hired movers for the first time with these last 2 moves, a) because husbands company was paying for it and b) we were moving to another state. We moved twice in the last 2.5 years. we started in FL, then moved to TX for 7 months then to NV where we are now and have been for 2 years. We moved alot when we lived in FL and each time we moved ourselves, they were very small moves though - just blocks away in each case.

Moved 13 times in 10 years. Hate movers... yet to find a single honest one. Much less hassle to do it yourself. For moving cross country we did do a 'you pack, they haul' deal, which was $3,000+ cheaper than the lowest mover's quote + everything actually showed up since we sealed the trailer + none of the antiques were broken or gouged since we wrapped them carefully ourselves.

I've done short distance moves every year for the past five years, but I'll be moving 1000 miles away in August. Not looking forward to it, especially without my strong man to help carry things.

My SO & I just closed on our first home on May 6th... So we are not even fully settled in. City Girl my house is also three bedrooms + den, but we'll probably move up once we decide to start a family. Each of our rooms already has a purpose and I'm sure I would give up my office for a nursery, but more than 1 child in that house would be overkill. We do have 3 dogs too so we are a full house already :)

I bought a place a little over a year ago and so I might never have to move again!!! It's a 3 bedroom, so unless I have more that 2 kids (very doubtful) there will probably be enough room. It's a pretty crazy thought that this might be where I live forever. . .and I'm only in my early 20s!

I'm in the middle of a move right now. We're moving from Canada to Norway. It is so much work and worries, but I'm sure I'll love my new life in Europe.

We moved a month ago. We bought the house and don't plan on moving for a very long time, if ever :) I hate moving it stinks. It took all weekend. I would hire movers if we could afford it but my SIL got a price for movers to move her and it was like $3,500. That is crazy. So it was much cheaper to pay $83 for a rental truck and then family helped us move and we will be returning the favor in a couple of months when they move into their new house.

I hate to move. It is the biggest headache ever. The only good thing is you do get ride of a lot of junk.

The last time I moved will forever be remembered as "the awful week during which I decided it was worth it to pay for movers". It was so tiring that I'm willing to handle an extra hour of commute time each day, just so I don't have to move again.
