I’ve never hired movers, nor have I ever enlisted friends to help move. Last time I moved, I was single and 50 years old with two children, and managed everything myself except for a desk and chifforobe my brother helped with. That kind of project really encourages one to shed belongings that aren’t crucial to your happiness. Granted, if there were four flights of stairs involved, I might have felt differently. Now I have a husband with a pickup truck, and we help other people move all the time!
