Such thing as "Packers"????

Seriously, I ask this because I may be interested in hiring some "packers." I know that "movers" exist but I'm looking for someone to pack my belongings prior to someone else moving them. I say this because I hate to pack! Anyone who knows me, knows I abhor packing. I don't know think I ever really knew how much I hated packing until I lived out of a suitcase for a year. I actually only traveled all over the US for nine months, visiting different universities. But every week I had to figure out how I was going to fit my new purchases in the same two suitcases that each already weighed 50 lbs prior to arriving in that particular city. So since then, I've despised packing. I don't even like to pack my bags to go away for a weekend. It may have something to do with the fact that I'm an over-packer. I always have at least three bags for an overnight stay. I don't see how anyone can not have at least three separate bags... one for your toiletries, one for shoes, and one for clothing. It bothers me that Russell packs his dirty shoes in the same bag as his clean clothes!

So, if you've kept up with my blog at all, you have learned that Russell and I are moving to Memphis soon. Like, two weeks soon. Yes, I only have two weekends to move out of our house. Where are we going to live you ask? That's just it, we don't know. Before we moved into our home, the home we've only lived in for four short months, the home we just sold, I swore I would never move again. Russell told me then not to complain because I had just returned from our honeymoon in Italy for two weeks and I was moving into a nice new home. This time, there's no incentive to pack. I haven't just returned from Italy (although it was only four months ago, it seems like forever) and there's no nice new home to move into, yet. I'm a sucker for incentives, or some people may call them gifts, vacations, rewards, etc. Call them what you may. I just think I need one. So, I guess my question is do you know of any "packers," preferably at a decent rate???

Hillary, when we moved to Chattanooga United Movers packed and moved us. It was great, they even empty all your drawers. We didn't have to pack a thing. I don't know about their prices though because the company paid for them. They were very good and quick though. congrats on the move! Crissie
