15. Moving Moving is expensive already. From first and last month’s rent to the cost of setting up cable and utilities, you could spend a small fortune. And of course there’s the movers. Before you sign a contract, check for long carry, handling bulky items, packing labor and supply fess as well as the cost of moving insurance. It’s enough to make you not want to move at all…at least for us it is. We’re staying put. Indefinitely.
