Ok- so today....





Hello, my name is Erin, and I love making my life difficult. Really- it's a serious problem that needs to be address.

Today, after 4 days of trying to contact our landlord, we FINALLY received a return phone call and were told we are able to move out March 1st. Great! And then it sunk in...holy crap- I'm moving in 22 days and I have to pack up my entire house! Damn February for being so short.

Long story short, I've literally spent all afternoon on the phone- renting trucks, scheduling carpet cleaners, calling Landlords about viewings, and of course, giving my Father a play-by-play...the list goes on...it's retarded!

Initally, Tuesday was going to be the day to view potential homes but after calling 2 places and being told they were already rented, I had a mini meltdown, bumped my trip to Calgary and am now going on Saturday so I can see the places, make a choice and then sign a Lease so that we aren't homeless. *takes a breath*

Moving is not Frugal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Especially since we are moving into a more expensive city, meaning: higher rent, higher electricity/heat/utilities bills, higher insurance etc etc etc...

This is my second time moving in less then a year...BUT it will be my last time moving for a few years. There are some really nice places that I am going to be looking at...and I'm feeling hopeful that one of them will feel 'right'.

Until then, I have a lot of packing, purging and organizing to do. Stay tuned tomorrow for Frugal Moving tips...because there are some. :)

Frugally Yours,
Erin B.
