I want to move like I do every year. Maybe I can get my friends and Prefixers to help me move using the subway boyeeee!

...
Last week it served that purpose for Young Min, 24, who packed up stuff from a Korean homestead in Flushing, Queens, and moved it all to a one-bedroom on the Upper West Side — using only the subway. While easy on his wallet, the move turned out to be hard on his friendships: To help him get all of his belongings from one place to the other, Min enlisted two friends from his language school. Together they moved his air conditioner, collapsible double-rod closet, dishes (including serving platters and utensils), laptop, linen, quilts, books, clothes, and assorted framed pictures, a soup cauldron, Korean medicine, condiments, and a 40-pound bag of rice onto the 7 train, then to Times Square, through the Times Square Station to the 1 train, and finally to the new place on West 64th. ...
The next day, when he called for help moving his bed, again on the subway, his friends didn't return his calls and one even skipped their Kaplan class in order to avoid getting roped into another move......

How big can a pot be before it is classified as a cauldron...

i did something similar when I moved from Washington Heights to Harlem, although I had less stuff and a much shorter commute. I just bought a few of those big plastic bins for storage, put them in my new apt., then each day id bring a duffel bag full of stuff to work, drop it off at my new place after work. I had a few weeks, so it was pretty easy and convenient moving Shawshank style.
