There’s nothing like an extended road trip to remind you how much you lean on a 3.5-inch sliver of plastic. On my multistate move to join CreditCards.com I opted to pay the mover via credit card, even though there was an extra fee for the privilege, because of the extra protection I thought I would receive. But the usual billing protection that comes with a card payment turns out to be more complicated when dealing with movers.
Even my toaster has to go. It’s one of those fancy, stainless steel, four-slicer monstrosities. It won’t fit on the limited counter space in my new kitchen.
I’m in the midst of downsizing, and it isn’t pretty. I woke up one morning a couple of weeks ago and decided it was time to take the plunge and sell my house. What I was not prepared for was not only would I have to sell my house, but almost everything else I had accumulated over the past 20 years. Plus, I would have to buy a new home, which while less expensive, isn’t a cheap process.
