It’s been a hell of a month. Remember my family’s move to a new home in February? If not, let me quote myself. “Our family moved to a new home this past weekend and, as most of you can relate, would be happy NEVER to move again.”
Well well well, guess who moved AGAIN four weeks after the original move? Yep. That would be me. Turns out our new home was riddled with mold; just enough to make all of us feel pretty crappy for our short duration in the residence. However, being “displaced” for the past three weeks while desperately searching for a new home is a story for another time and place. The good news is that we found a new (mold-free!) home and moved in a couple of days ago.
In my original moving post, I told you all about how we made the move without purchasing any new packing materials. I must admit, we were pretty proud of ourselves. We used only boxes, newspapers and bubble wrap that we had saved over the past 5 years in our garage … not a product was bought. Well, after unpacking and making the assumption we were in our home to stay, we took everything to be recycled.
This obviously posed quite a problem for our next move. We had NO materials and frankly, weren’t thrilled at the prospect of buying all new boxes and packing tape. Enter UsedCardboardBoxes.com. This company saved us from dropping a load of cash on brand new boxes, as well as living with the mild guilt of killing more trees for one day of moving.
UsedCardboardBoxes.com rescues truckloads of quality used boxes from large companies that might otherwise recycle them or simply throw them away, and are guaranteed to work just as well as a new box. (And they do! They were in great condition!) Plus, considering we found a place, signed a lease and moved within 3 days, the fact that I got the boxes shipped to me on the very next day was fantastic. I was so pleased with the entire transaction, including the knowledge that we were being extra friendly to the earth by re-using cardboard boxes once again. Hooray for used cardboard boxes!
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have about 38 more used cardboard boxes to unpack. See you next week!
