Youre moving, right? Does it sometimes feel like there's no end to your to-do list? I hate to add to your already hectic day, but if you're considering a rental truck for your move, there's one more thing you'll need to think about (if you haven't already) INSURANCE. Ugh. Not really what you want to deal with on top of everything else, but it's definitely necessary. If you haven't talked to your agent in a while, now's the time.
What's the hardest thing about moving across the country? Besides figuring out how to keep your plants alive and remembering where you packed the bottle opener (keep it in your purse you'll thank me later).
Some might say that packing sends them into a frenzy, or maybe it's figuring out the logistics apartment hunting from 2,000 miles away is kind of a pain. But for me, the hardest part is always the first step: getting quotes from movers.
I have officially been living in Chicago for two weeks. A few U-Pack boxes still decorate my apartment, but for the most part I'm settled and adjusting to the winter weather. I've reconnected with a lot of family and friends and had a chance to fill them in on my road trip out here. The drive out to California was a bit of a whirlwind - we drove straight through without stopping - but this time we made sure to stop. The convenience of not traveling with a truck-load of stuff provided me and my mom with the freedom to take the scenic route and stop whenever (and wherever) our hearts desired.
What screams "it's Christmastime!" louder than a beautifully decorated Christmas tree? Okay, maybe Santa. But Christmas trees surely are at the top of the list. And there are some amazing ones around the country. This Must-See Holiday Trees infographic, just released in the U-Pack press room, depicts the country's most festive firs, pines and spruces.

A while back you may have read about my original experience moving with U-Pack. I moved from Fort Smith, AR to Phoenix, AZ in a ReloCube. Today I thought I would talk about why I decided on U-Pack instead of renting a truck and driving it myself.

Four months ago I did something kind of crazy: I quit my full-time job to pursue a lucrative career as a freelance writer. Why did I quit my full-time job with benefits in a beach-front office at a promising tech startup? Because I fell out of love with Los Angeles.
