AZ to CA: You have to unpack if you want to pack.

This is going to sound quite counterintuitive. Whether you rent or own your home, I am a big believer that if you want to move, you need to first unpack.  Yes, I said unpack.  So many people move into a place they think will be temporary, and so they don’t unpack. Then a decade later they are still there, no pictures on the walls, loads of boxes in the basement or garage.  I see a lot of renters who are so hesitant about fully moving in; hanging family pictures or artwork . But unless you’re in an 18th century farmhouse with horsehair plaster walls, nail holes are easy to patch.  So, the first step is to get completely unpacked and moved in. This includes me. I had two boxes left over from my move two years ago that I finally unpacked…and then packed them right up for Goodwill. If I haven’t needed the stuff for the last two years, I won’t need it in California either.
