Moving on Memorial Day weekend

If you just acquired some new neighbors, you're in good company: Memorial Day weekend is a popular time to move.

It appeals because it's three days off in the (almost) summer, the season for moving thanks to spring homebuyers, new college graduates and newlyweds.

Self-storage companies have started calling the day after this long weekend "Crazy Tuesday" because, they say, so many new movers come in to rent units (and perhaps because the industry is hoping for a smidge of the attention paid to Black Friday).
