PACKING A WALLOP
Moving is a terrible chore that can easily go from affordable inconvenience to pricey disaster. The percentage of Americans moving from place to place has been on a steady decline since 1984, to the point that about half haven't moved in the past 10 years, according to a 2017 survey by Homes.com. Most of those who have moved more than five times in that period are ages 25 to 34 (the most likely to have friends willing to help for little more than pizza and beer). With proper preparations, you can keep moving costs down and avoid some common catastrophes.
