I'm facing this same dilemma, but only moving 8 hours away. We are visiting our new city this coming weekend, so I am bringing as much as the car can hold and leaving them with a friend to watch. Then the rest of the plants my parents are taking with them when they visit in two weeks. I have 16 plants, and I don't really want to leave any behind... Especially when they have sentimental value, like my rubber tree from my grandmother's funeral.

What Do You Do With Your Houseplants When You Move?

Another tidy person here-
-I grew up in an obsessively organized and clean house, which is my main reason why I behave the way I do. My dad would say "if you stand still long enough, Carol (my mom) will put YOU away!" Although my siblings are not as organized as me.
-I cannot live in chaos, I feel uncomfortable when things are messy. (Another story from my childhood, I would go over to my friends house and we would pretend to be Snow White and pick up and clean for fun... Yes, parents loved it when I came over for a visit, I transformed many playrooms. "Just whistle while you work!")
-Everything has it's place. Which makes it super easy to keep everything tidy. I go through our drawers and closets at least once a year and reorganize so our new items have room.
I also enjoy doing it, which may be weird but it's so true. I love to organize, I should have became a professional organizer. ;-)

You forgot one plus: STARS!
You will never be able to see more than a few stars (if that) living in Chicago or NYC. And I am not talking about actors and such, but the beautiful night sky. It is one thing I miss terribly living in Chicago.
That and having a yard.

Growing up I stripped a lot of old painted furniture, sort of strange for a 12 year old stripping a dresser for her bedroom, right? But after all that work, I know I am for sure a wood fan.
