Once you've finally decided that it's time to move to Florida, reality sets in. You're definitely excited for this upcoming major life change, but at the same time, you don't even know where it begin when it comes to packing. What should you bring? What should you part ways with and leave behind?
When my family and I moved to Florida, we had to really figure out what was important to us and what wasn't. What could we sell and what couldn't we live without? Here are a few great general rules to live by when you're starting to pack for your move to Florida.
Is it replaceable?
Most of my clothing was replaceable. I realized that not only would I want to buy new clothes once I got to Florida, but I also would probably need to. The climate I was used to in NY would be nothing like down south, so I saw no point in trying to lug all my clothing with me.
Will the shipping cost outweigh the actual worth?
This especially applies to large items such as furniture or storage pieces. Don't pay to ship something if you can find the same exact thing cheaper once you arrive to your destination.
Does it have sentimental value?
Although some of my items were replaceable and would cost more to ship than they were actually worth, I took them anyways. Why? Because they provided extreme sentimental value to me. Moving to Florida isn't about leaving your old life behind, it's about finding your old self in a new place.
