“Dear PoPville,

1) I’m having a trailer-full of furniture moved from Tennessee to DC. It’s costing about $2,000. Do people generally tip their movers, and if so, how much?

2) How much do people pay for housesitters, who are friends/coworkers as opposed to people who actually do this for a living? I have two cats. Say it’s a four-day weekend. $100? More? Less?”
