I have a plan. My plan is to move away. Obviously, it is something that I have talked about previously. It is something that would be good for me career wise, health wise and it is just time to do something different.
I have been looking through my things. Getting rid of things. Researching the city that I have decided to move to. I have just been doing everything as though I plan on moving in the next three months. Well, I would love to move in the next three months but I can’t. That is a whole other discussion.
Here is my question though. Is it ever too early to prepare to move. For instance. I have pre-shopped for things that I know I will need. No, I have not ordered them because I think it may be best to just have things delivered to the new place. I do not want to pay for shipping twice. (Shipping to me now, for me to have to ship it later). I have been researching companies out there in the new city for employment, looking at Grad schools out there. Though it may be a while before I start going to Grad school but I want to make sure that I won’t have to move again if I decide to go back in the near future.
I have been trying to decide on how to do my car purchasing. Whether I want to purchase the car where I currently live and do a cross country move and take in the sights along the way or plan to purchase the car when I get to the new state because I will have to get a new license anyway. That led me to research purchasing, insurance and registration fees here and what it would cost to turn everything over once I was there.
Which way would be budget conscious?
I like being prepared for things. I have to be very particular about how I spend my money when it comes to this move. I have to have stability once I am there. I would not want to move without any type of preparedness – in that sense.
I play different scenarios in my mind about how this can go. I am not a type A personality but orderly is something that I work on.
Ugh, the point I am trying to make is that I am planning for something that is months away (like a wedding), am I over preparing myself for the move or no?
