5 Annoying Struggles Everyone Has While Moving

It is always fun moving into a new home, you get to redecorate, a different neighborhood, you might be closer to your favorite coffee shop, get away from the horrible traffic on the interstate, there are amounts of reasons to why you’re moving and it is always fun to start on a clean slate! What no one tells you is the struggles that happen when you’re moving, and it can be incredibly frustrating!

That is not going to fit in the backseat of your Prius, and breaking your back trying to haul your mattress down the stairs is simply not an option. These are key items that everyone has in their homes, and struggle to get out of their homes.
