When moving to a new home, do you prefer to do the packing or the cleaning?

Having just moved… if I had to do it again I would wish for enough money to hire someone to do both. Still looking for stuff.

I *prefer* to have someone dependable/responsible/competent do it. But since I've never found that person & couldn't afford them if I did, I prefer to do it all myself. Only then do I know where things are on both ends of move & know things are clean

Unfortunately I always have to do both...but I'd prefer the cleaning...and I hate cleaning.

Just left an apartment that I didn't have to clean out. They're tearing down the complex so we got to leave empty boxes in it too. Took out all the lightbulbs and the digital thermostats too. It was great!!

Since we are moving stuff from a storage unit and a motorhome to a house, the really is no cleaning involved. My back and legs and arms ache from moving what we have so far. So, I'll pick cleaning.

I'm better at organizing than my husband is. He's quicker at cleaning than I am. So I do the packing & unpacking. He does the cleaning. But we've only moved three times in the 17 years we've been married.

We work like that in a lot of different areas. We're a good combination of opposites (one covers the others weakness) and likeness (similar interests).

Oh the boxes ...finding the boxes..organizing the boxes so much work. When we moved into our home it was so much work my hubby said that's it. We are not doing that again so we better be happy here lol.

In the process right now. Move two weeks from today. I have 3 boxes packed so far...oops. We decided we're hiring a cleaning crew to come in and spruce it up after we get all our stuff out so we don't have to be bothered.

We just moved to KY. I'll pick cleaning over packing any day... Two moving trucks to move a ton of things we don't need! Ugh!!!

I haven't had to move in the last 14+ years so it is hard for me to say, but I picked packing.

Sometimes I have nightmares about having to pack and clean, even while not moving to a new home.

I hope I never have to move to find out what I would rather do.

I wish I could find one place and be happy with it for an extended period of time. Still at the bottom of the pay scale for a while..

I don't live here for the pay. I grew up in this little town and it's home even if I ever do have to move.

The process of moving is the pits.

But I chose packing, cause it forces me to purge junk I've collected.

I'd pay to have both done, but I chose cleaning... My house is usually quite clean to begin with.
