I’m looking for a cheap way to move long distance…have any suggestions?

So, I’m thinking about moving to Hawaii, specifically, to Honolulu.
Ahhh…paradise. While I’m still dreaming of Honolulu’s pristine beaches and balmy weather, your dream is actually coming true! To say that I’m jealous is an understatement. But, I’ll try to be supportive! Okay, so you want to know about cost, right? Well, I bet you’ve probably figured out by now that living in the most gorgeous place on the planet isn’t cheap. And if you’ve done some research, you’ve probably also figured out that moving there can be on the expensive side, too.

Do you love watching fireworks on the 4th of July?
So do my friends and coworkers, Donna and Brittany.

Need to Dispose of a Computer?
Maybe you’re moving soon and clearing out the attic. Did you find an old IBM ThinkPad? Or maybe you got the dreaded blue screen of death on your computer and it’s a lost cause. Either way, if you have a computer that you no longer need, you may want to get rid of it instead of paying to move it.
