Just in Time for The Holiday’s

My family and I took on the challenge of moving this past weekend. We opted out of tailgate food and the many great football games on TV and was focused on loading a 26 foot U-Haul truck. We got it done with the help of my brother-n-law. Today I am super tired. But the hassle was worth it and just in time for the holidays. I learned a few tips from this move. Scott Shepherd’s moving guide if you will:

  1. If you don’t want to buy boxes, start trying to gather boxes about 2 weeks before your move.
  2. Label ALL boxes so you can unload them in the proper room. This cuts down on double handling and saves your back and precious time.
  3. Take some time before your move to sort through the things you don’t use or need and begin trips to the salvation army or good will.
  4. If you are moving in town, give yourself a few days to wrap up loose ends at your old address. I wound up leaving my ironing board and cast iron skillets! But I still have a key and will stop by and pick those items up today.
  5. Call ahead to rent your moving truck. It will save time at the counter.
  6. Start begging for help about 2 weeks out as well. People run from moving friends.
  7. If you have small children, get a friend or relative to babysit.
  8. Insure your new clothes dryer receptacle will actually fit your dryer plug.
  9. Buy a jug of Bengay© and a vat of Tylenol© for the aches and pains that come afterward.
  10. Sleep.

Now all that’s left is unpacking and organizing and enjoying the Thanksgiving Holiday!
