Growing up I only lived in two towns, but 5 or 6 different apartments/houses within one of the towns.

As an adult, I've lived in 2 states and 4 different towns/cities. Lived in a total of 7 different houses/apartments.

I hate moving now, by the way. I hope we stay put for a while since baby is coming and I can NOT stand to pack another uhaul.

I moved 9 times as a kid - San Antonio, Ft. Rucker Alabama, San Francisco, Ojai California, Mesa Arizona, St. Johns Arizona, Clinton Missouri, Show Low Arizona, and Toronto.

From there, as an adult, I've moved 7 times. Back to Show Low, back to Toronto, back to Show Low, then to Phoenix, to Mesa, to Maricopa Arizona, and then here to Toronto again.

I'm hoping our next move will be our last. We'll either stay here in the Toronto area but get our own house, or we'll be moving down to the Cleveland area.

I moved tons.
Easy 10 or 11 times before I was in 2nd grade. After that we moved every year to year and a half, and most of those were moves to totally different states.

Dad would get a better job offer, we followed the money.
It sucked, at the time. But, I'm really glad for it now... I learned a lot about the world, different cultures, and how people work as well as adapting to new situations.

Since being an adult I've moved four times. I've been where I am now for 4 years, and it's the longest time I've been in any one place.

How many times did you move growing up?

Twice as a kid, when I was 7 (from city to city in S. FL) and again when I was 14 (to NC)

How many times have you moved since becoming an adult? Hmmm....a handful? Let's see....

moved out of my parents across town in 1999 (does moving back in w/ my parents count? LOL)
moved to St. Louis in 2002 - and again back home a year later
moved across town to an apartment in 2003
bought my own place in the next town over 2005
moved back to my original small town 2007-ish w/ DH (fiance at the time)
.....and finally just moved to FL a couple of months ago!

As a child I moved 10 times. Over 7 years (There were even a few times we were homeless and lived in my moms SUV or in a motel)..all with my mom once she and my dad divorced after a few years and my dad let her have custody of me cuz he thought since I was nearing puberty that I needed my mom. My dad stayed in the same home my whole life tho. Which I wish he hadnt given my mom custody as my dad provided a more stable environment.

As an adult 7 times. Over the course of 14 years. One move was due to a flood tho. Another move was because a landlord wanted to move back into the house we were renting. One move was because some sick perv antifreeze poisoned 3 of our dogs over the course of two years. Our last move was back to my home state into our home which we own so we won't be moving again.

I just moved once when I was 2, then not again until I went to college.
As an adult, I have moved about 11 times, not counting the times we moved back to the same place. We have been here 5 years and if we never move again, it will be too soon.

I moved three times total. My parents bought their first home and before I was old enough to start school they wanted to move to a different district so we moved to a different city still in CA though. Then when I was a sophomore in HS we moved because of my sister but still in the same school district so I could finish HS.

Since becoming an adult I have moved 3 times. First to WA state, then to San Diego, and now to Clovis.
