We have moved five times this year.

Hi, Freeguy,

Yes, the sentence would be much improved by the deletion of "during." You could, however, use "during the last year" or "during the past year":

  • We have moved five times during the last year.
  • We have moved five times during the past year.

Those sentences measure a year from the time of speaking to one year ago, whereas your sentence technically applies to the calendar year.
