|Confidence building/thrift store shoppers?
||[Jul. 24th, 2007|12:08 pm]
So... I have to move. Soon. Not, like, "next week", but soon. I'm paying rent for August; I'm not paying rent (here) for September. Once the upstairs toilet leaks on me twice, I'm through... I'm fussy that way.|
Here's the problem I have.
I either need storage, to store some cheap-ass dressers, or confidence that, after hitting a few thrift stores, I can probably find a couple if I need them.
Part of this problem is already solved. I know that I can, for example, store my clothes in a cheap plastic filing cabinet I can get from an office supply place. But the other part...
See, this is the thing that bugs me. What I have is dirt cheap, and not really worth much... but the replacement cost is pretty high. You can't just walk into a store and say "I threw away a $10 dresser; could you sell me another?"
I just checked out storage; it's about $50 a month for a 5x5. Not terrible... not great, but not terrible.
And I'll have to figure out how to get stuff to storage, as well.
Any of my Seattle-ish friends have a truck or SUV? I can rent, but I'd rather buy a friend a $50 gift than pay a rental place $40 to rent a truck, you know?
In the meantime, I'm smoking what might be my last batch of beef jerky in the cheapy smoker I have here (that's too dirty for storage or even freecycling), and I think it's time I did a bit more cleaning, packing, studying, and job searching.
