You've found a great, new place, but the worst part is ahead.


No one LIKES moving. But it's always easier when you have friends to help you.

Like us.

So for those of you getting ready to move, here are some suggestions on how to make it a little bit easier, both before and after the move.

Pack an Overnight Bag


Since most everything is packed away, you want to make sure you have a change of clothes, your jammies and of course, personal toiletries. Packing these things in an overnight bag eliminates the need for looking for the EXACT box you packed those things in. With that part out of the way, let's get to the next item.

Get Clear Plastic Bins


If you can see it, you know what it is. Use them ESPECIALLY for those things you're going to need right away, like cleaning supplies, etc. If you can get enough of them, moving EVERYTHING in those clear plastic bins makes moving even easier because you know what's in everything. But if you can't afford to pack everything in those, there is always the old, reliable standby.

Get Boxes


The more boxes you can get prior to the actual move, the easier the whole affair becomes because you don't have to go looking for them last minute. If you have enough advanced knowledge of when you are actually moving, having the entire house packed up by that day saves time, energy and reduces stress.

Rounding up all of your friends to help is also huge. Get those with trucks set up ahead of time, remind them of free beer and pizza and you are almost there! Of course, if you don't have any friends with trucks there are always rental options available at decent prices.

You're done! Celebrate!


A few more tips to help along the way.

Keep your glasses from breaking by stuffing clean socks in them.

Write a short description of what's in each box and place the room name in HUGE letters so when moving it in, it goes to the right room. Wrapping dishes and other breakables in clean clothing also saves on expensive wrapping.

And there you have it. Stress-free results driven move that will be the envy of your friends. Just smile and say "I did it!"
