    We moved interstate when he was 8 weeks old, lived in Canberra for a year to the day, back to home town, found out DH got a job in QLD 2 weeks after we moved so took 3 weeks to finalise my work pack up again and move interstate again. We will be here for 18 months before moving again.

    I've moved 7 times in the last 9 years, but only once in the last 4 years with DP, so most of that moving was crammed into the period between 2006 and 2011.
    In my 20s I was with my exH and from memory we moved roughly 3 times in that time.

    I moved interstate with my parents at age 2, into a rental before they bought when I was 3. We lived in that house til my parents divorced at age 6, then i lived in 2 different rentals with my mum until moving back into the original family home (dad moved out) a couple of years later. That house sold when I was 9 & mum bought another place where I stayed until I moved out at 21. Then lived in 3 different rentals until buying at age 24. Moved out due to separation when DD was 6 months, then got the house in the settlement and have been here ever since

    DP has since moved in and initially we thought we definitely needed a bigger house. He has a small business and SO MUCH STUFF. But the cost & hassle of moving just isn't worth it to us. Living in a smaller property has meant we have to live minimally (minimalistically?!) which I like! We've done a lot to it since he's been here and will continue to. Plus DD is super settled here, she's such a little homebody. It's 5mins from her school too.

    Default How often do you move house?

    As an adult I've moved 6 (maybe 7?) times.
    House I was renting was sold
    Second house I was renting was sold
    Moved interstate to a rental
    Brought a starter house but got a job overseas so was never home
    Brought a 'forever home'
    Moved to a rental to trial a new city before selling forever home
    Sold forever home and brought a new 'forever home' in the new city

    I don't want to move again for a long time

    As a child we moved house maybe 10 times, including interstate a couple of times and overseas. Within the same city we moved a few times too as my parents flipped houses.

    We only move once after our marriage, and that is 7 years ago. We didn't regret moving from Queensland to Melbourne. My husband and I really love Melbourne. We like the weather and much on the foods . The hard part of moving is to bring all your stuffs. No one wants to buy new couch while moving because that will cost you. Thank god there are removalist in Melbourne. They help us to pack and move things. The amount we spent for their services is still cheaper than buying new stuffs. And now we are visiting different places weekly.

    Way too much! In 12 years the longest we have been in a house is the one we are currently in which is 2.5 years (and no intention of moving any time soon, preferably ever!).
