🙁 Ugh, I don’t really have any advice, but that’s a really annoying situation. I’m sorry!! At least you could take a stand if it were your own parents, but when it’s someone else’s parents it’s just all the worse. Could you talk to your Fiance about it? Has he discussed it with them?

I’m sorry you feel this way. And I know you said you don’t even know if you need advice, but I figured I’d throw in my two cents anyway, maybe just to give you a little perspective. The part where you said, “I understand that if they are being gracious enough to let us live here we should at LEAST give them a hand cleaning the area we are about to live in” should really be that you are willing to clean ALL of it. They aren’t expecting anything from you and they are allowing you to stay with them, in my honest opinion you shouldn’t expect anything from them. If you want it cleaned, than you and only you (well and FH) should be the ones cleaning it. Is the problem more that you don’t know where things would go if you tried to clean it yourself? You could always make a little corner for things your unsure of? I know my dad stores everything in our attic, if I was to tell him I needed to move up there I can guarantee he would need to rent a storage locker just to find a place for the everything.

Yikes, I think this is just a sticky situation where unfortunatley all you can do is vent 🙁 You really can’t bring it up with them b/c they can always turn around and say, “sorry you can’t move in” Do they have somewhere else they can store things? A garage or attic maybe? Maybe when you start moving things in they will see that it won’t work and it’ll put a fire under the butts and they’ll start moving things out?

If its any help, I’ve moved by myself twice. The first time was just out of my college dorm, but the second time I had to move a mattress, dresser, and everything else I owned. It was pretty much an adventure. I had to throw my mattress over the balcony and then drag it on top of my car!! It’s amazing what you are capable of when you run out of options!! Good Luck!
