My boyfriend officially moved into his new house, and Moving Day was kind of a disaster. One might say he underestimated the amount of work / time / strength that would be needed for this move, and I don’t want to say “I told you so…” but – I told you so. (<3)
The day went a little like this:
Between the 4 of us, 2 hours, and 1 trip to the hardware store to purchase a wrench, we were finally able to take apart the couch to get it down to the moving van. 8 hours later, we finished the move.
What I’ve learned from this experience: 1) If your entire plan revolves around PIVOTING, your furniture is not going to get “out the door” “into the elevator” “down the stairwell” “anywhere” 2) Don’t throw away your IKEA tools 3) Wear closed toe shoes 4) Tie said shoes 5) Don’t wear jewelry 6) Bring a hair tie 7) bring an extra bobby pin, in fact, bring ten and most most importantly 8) Hire Movers – they’re worth it. So. Worth. It.
And yes, that is a Tatung – eg the O.G. rice cooker of all rice cookers.
