I second the dumpster. If it is something that you can obtain in Tampa that will not be a hardship to you financially, DUMP IT. Give it away. Have a garage sale.This includes second-hand furniture, dishes (which are a pain to pack), the plastic guzzle cups from Seven 11, all the stuff on your refrigerator held by magnets, food (give it to the local food pantry- cans are heavy to move!), all the stuff your hubby or you never got around to fixing, second-hand tools that do not relate to work, books that hold no meaning, old magazines, berry baskets, cans of spray paint, cans of house paint, toilet paper rolls, and that computer that still runs at 33 MHz with the big 500 MB hard drive.
I would take the beds if they are in good shape, anything that belongs to any youngsters or pets in the house no matter how ratty, anything of material or sentimental value (wedding china, photos), the computer you really use, and first-hand furniture still in good-to-excellent shape.
BE ORGANIZED. Label, label, label, right on the box. Do not overload boxes. Use plenty of packing material (newspaper, peanuts, bubble wrap). Use big, fat Sharpie markers!!!
If you have a place to live, you might consider mailing your books and other materials considered media to yourselves via media rate. Mail the other stuff first-class or priority. I’m here to tell you, it saves oodles of time packing, hauling and unpacking the stuff.
