If you’ve even started to read this post, I’ll assume you’re willing to maybe give me a little advice. As the title suggests, it’s mostly for people who have had the experience of moving abroad. However, I would sure like to know how you all feel about this.
Last summer (when we THOUGHT we were moving to France, but it didn’t work out: Putting France on Hold…. Hanging in there in St. Louis), we reserved a 20-foot container: What we’re going to put in our 20-foot container . We put down a deposit, and it will be applied toward our balance even a year later (it doesn’t expire). The problem is that it is still going to be very, very expensive.
Now we are just wondering if we really need a 20 foot private container. Would a shared container be enough? It sure would be a lot cheaper. If we shared one instead, we would have to be very selective with what we bring, and we hadn’t planned on that.
Should we bring less (and pay less), ultimately having to purchase a lot of what we will need once in France?
Should we pay more and have pretty much everything we will need to set up house?
Please tell me what you think. It’s a hard decision to make on our own, so I’m depending on you 🙂
Here’s a short list of what we were planning to bring: What we’re going to put in our 20-foot container .
