Our family helped us do the move ourselves. We packed up all our belonging into a van.
Yes I did day - A van.
It didn't look much but the many trips up & down 3 flights of stairs at the flat confirmed we had a lot of stuff.
As I said in my moving post, we did clear out. We had several trips to the recycling centre to get rid of "stuff".
Not enough stuff.
On our trip to the new house, my father in law got pulled over by the police. The van ended up getting weighed & it was indeed overloaded. It was heavier than it should have been.
Anyways bit of phone calls & extra vans later we were back on our way & unloading.
The van didn't look overloaded. It was full, but not bulging or straining. However it was most definitely too much stuff.
I have thought about this (probably too deeply!) & I feel the van is quite like our life. Full of stuff & we are happy to be full & carry the load, but sometimes it just isn't safe. Sometimes we need to share the load. To make it manageable.
There is nothing wrong with lightening the load, sharing or asking for help. Sometimes you need an extra van!
So we are in - probably with more stuff than we need but we made it, with a lot of help from our family!
Do you let yourself get overloaded?
