How do or how have you done it? My wedding is in 68 days… yes we are counting down! And now, comes the time when we are thinking of me moving my things down. I live an hour and a half from my new home to be & eventually I have to start moving my things in. Ques. how did you Bee’s do moving? A little at a time? or Rent a U-Haul? I sort of want my things settled in when we get done with the wedding & honeymoon… so when we come back it will really feel like home.
I think I will move my things down and try and put things up as I go along… so I will be all the way or practically moved in by then. How’d u do it?

I would start small, go through a pile of things each evening, or even a few evenings a week, and weed through what you want to take and what you don’t need. Then when you are finished, donate what you dont want and start packing up what you do want. Then the day of the move, you can just put all the boxes/furniture in one big uhaul and haul on over to your new life. 🙂 I’m a big advocate for cleaning out and donating. When we moved, it took me forever because I did not want to take a single item that we didn’t need or want.

I agree. Start small. My guy moved into my place. Whenever he’d visit he’d bring a couple boxes of stuff he didn’t need at the moment (books, dvds, winter clothes) or I’d take a box when I visited his to bring back with me. By the time the move date came we got a uhaul and brought over all the big stuff/furniture and all his small necessities that he couldn’t bring earlier. Moving is tough enough. It’s nice to know that some of it’s moved and set up by the time you bring over the last of it.

I did the opposite. I moved everything at one time. then we only dealt with it for 2 days or so. Granted I am not the type of person that has a bunch of stuff. I really only owned the things I needed and the things that I didn’t need I sold before I moved in.

Definitely start small!! Once we had decided I’d move in w/in the next month or so, I brought over a duffel bag w/ clothes and stuff every few nights. When the time came to be fully moved in, I only had to make two trips w/ a car full of stuff, and I was done! It really helped out.

My husband and I already lived together when we got married, but we moved about a month after the wedding. We were in a position where we just had to rent a U-Haul and move it all at once.
However, if you’re wanting to be “settled”…. do it a little at a time. If you move it all, you’ll get overwhelmed with unpacking (case in point- Darling Husband and I have lived here for over a month and still aren’t unpacked all the way)
If you move it a little at a time, and unpack and arrange your stuff as you move it, then by the time it’s all moved you’ll be all settled in.

U-Haul all the way! But Fiance and I bought our house the day we got engaged, and moved in a month later. I say, if you’re going to do it, since you are an hour away, just do it all in one shot.

Since you live an hour and a half away I’d probably do it all at once. Make sure while you’re packing you have certain boxes that can just go directly into storage for awhile.
