Here at the Sitcom, we do silly Halloween.  I am opposed to scary simply because being scared is not one of my favorite things.  After seeing the Monsters University Movie, I was inspired.  I was not only excited to see a monster movie that makes me smile, but inspired to create!

My creation?  A Jar O' Monsters!

Inspired by this hilarious prequel to Monsters, Inc., I decided to create a Jar O' Monsters emulating some of the wonderful characters from the movie!

Moving is definitely not a fun thing.  At least not in our experience.  Over the last 20 years, my husband and I have moved into four different homes.  We have dealt with less than honest moving companies and paid more than we wanted to most every time.  Stress, annoyance and frustration were common factors.  I wish I had known then about U-Pack.  U-Pack delivers a moving trailer right to your door, you pack it, and they move it for you!

How easy is that?

How does a U-Pack move work?

  • They deliver an empty moving trailer to your home.
  • You load your belongings.  Take up to 3 business days if needed!
  • They pick up the trailer and drive it to your new place. 
  • You have three more days to unload. 

I love the fact that you are in charge of your own stuff, have time to load it properly and the way you want it, and then someone else drives it to your new location for you!  It's a great way to save a bit of money on a move and not have to deal with all of the fine details.
