    Check out uship.com. Full load, LTL, or a few pieces. I've also used them for single pieces before.
    Last time I moved (Portland OR to GA), I sold all the big stuff, stored 30 boxes at a mini-storage, packed my car full and drove the 2500 miles. Loved the drive. Then had a friend back in OR take all the boxes to UPS and ship them to me. Before that, it's just been in-town or total purge moves so no other experience...
    Helped a friend move recently - helped her pack the truck, she drove it and hired unpackers at the other end. All sorts of options.

    I loved that to, actually clicked on it to check the size cause I was about to throw some money out. Way to small for me though.

    Quick Lunch Stop at this small church run Thrift store. They don't have a ton of stuff. But, nothing stays there long. Once stuff has been there too long, it goes onto the 75 cent rack and even eventually ends up at a quarter.

    Unfortunately, only one of my purchases was a 75 cent sale.

    I'm not real sure about this first one. I don't know if this would be a SWD item or maybe just a nothing. Growing up, I always remember old guys out working in their yards. it seemed like they all wore coveralls and most of the ones I remember were the kind with the built in belt. Maybe that's why I bought this just for Nostalgia:

    I'm trying to focus my T-Shirt purchases. I think I found a few good ones this time

    Here is possibly another nostalgia inspired purchase.

    I remember a lot of pictures of my brother and me wearing these kinds of shirts.

    Is this shirt below a Good POLO purchase or a poor Polo purchase?

    I love finding New Master's (Augusta) Shirts at thrift prices! [​IMG]

    I don't really care whether this next polo purchase is good or not. It was 70 cents and if its not worth anything, I'll keep it because I like it! [​IMG]

    Off topic, but relevant.

    Many of us appreciate things that are perfect in form. Or demonstrate true beauty.

    Speaking of perfect forms:

    Happy Birthday to Evangeline Lilly (who will always be Kate to me)

    Ahah nice, exactly the same thought... "American Psycho". Did you notice he only wears french cuffs too? ^^

    Got a kick right on the first episode too, when his boss asks him "Is this a Brioni (tie)"? #threadaddict

    @Bahljs and @DanM and another other Cinci and Cleveland folks. I'm going to need you guys to start checking the CD's at your thrift stores. I personally watched a lot of people stand in line to pay $10 for this particular CD a few years back in both of your cities and now it's selling for up to $1000. I'm thinking it could be floating around there somewhere. My two friends and I all bought this CD and had it signed, but I was buying mine for my sister with the intention of ripping the songs. She won't let me sell hers. My friends have both given me theirs because they like money. My sister is a super fan unfortunately and won't let me sell it. Back when they were selling this album they were pretty much only touring Ohio and they hit Cinci and Cleveland a lot. One of those stops they actually opened for a band I was playing in at the time. Not too hard to check for because it's not in a jewel case, so you'll only have to scan your eyes over everything to find paper cases.

    Was on my way home from a long day of driving and decided to stop in a shop instead of sitting in traffic...

    Girlfriend was psyched on this being her size.

    One of my favorite pieces of women's clothing I've found. [​IMG]

    And then I was happy to find this. The consignment store I got it at had no idea what the tags said and priced it as an unknown long vest (cheeeeeap), luckily I had seen these tags before from my other jacket.

    haha that scene was pretty funny. I waited till he was taking off his tie under the bridge and paused it at the right moment just to check if the show was being genuine.
