Best and Worst Advice on Moving

Can you imagine anyone would give bad advice? Well trust me some do.

I was talking the other day to a lady about how I’m moving from Michigan to California to join my husband at the base he is stationed at me. she told me and I’ll use exact words “That is so great! I love moving it’s so easy.” I stopped short because so far moving has NOT been easy so I’m trying to figure out how in the world she thinks it’s easy. I ask and had to laugh by her answer because after she said it I understand why she thinks moving is so splendid. She told me she hires someone to pack here whole house and move it. I finally realized she A. has much more money than I realized B. I wish I could afford that and C. she is a tad nuts.

Of course if I had the money to hire someone I would. But I definitely don’t have that kind of cash hanging around. Plus I’m too OCD to let someone pack my stuff. And too grossed out thinking they’d see me unmentionables.

So that is my worst advice because it is it truly is. Most people don’t rely on others to pack. However I do know lots of people trust the help to do the actual moving part. And if done right it isn’t usually that expensive.

The best moving advise I was ever given is to pack by room and not to move to a new room till I’m done with the first. Then when the room is done write the room name on the box then leave in that room till it’s time to pack the moving van. The other advice that goes along with this is to pack like things in a box. So basically be very organized.

For me this works very well. But the only way it works is if I make sure all things are taken care of and the whole place is very clean.

Alright guys and gals I’m moving in the next few months. I’m trying to slowly send my things to the new place. My husband is there before me since it’s where he is stationed. What are some of your tips on moving?

Talk soon,
