The Apartment Shuffle 3

You would think that moving from one apartment to another in the same building would be easier than doing a full-on move.

Unfortunately, as I’ve realized as I prepare to move downstairs to get out of the abominable heat of my current apartment, this is clearly not the case.

You still have to do 90% of the work: Pack everything in boxes, file change of addresses with eight billion companies, move all your utilities.

About the only things you don’t have to do are 1) rent a truck and 2) scrape together the money for another security deposit.

Damnation.

    You can’t even just drop things down the stairs or something?

    Thoroughly tempting. Alas, not feasible with electronics, dishes, or my fridge.

    It took twelve hours (exactly) to move from one part of the building to another when we moved into present-day UrbanTherapy. You’re right; it DOES suck.
