I do like to pack myself when moving – there are plenty of places that you can find boxes. As I am packing up, I do purge things that I haven’t used in awhile so I’m not taking anything that doesn’t have a purpose. I do usually sell these items or donate them. When moving, I do prefer a moving company as they are very handy with the heavy items such as furniture and appliances. Thanks for sharing!
