Moving soon? Moving can be a messy, expensive, back-breaking effort, so I feel for you.
In the 30 or so years we’ve been married, we’ve moved a total of eight times. I don’t like it much, but I have to say, I’m pretty danged good at it, so I thought I’d put together some tips to share with my readers who are going through the same thing.
When it comes to moving, my husband and I apparently have a deal, although I don’t remember ever agreeing to it. ALL packing, organizing, cleaning and prep-work falls to me. His contribution seems to be mainly lifting heavy furniture and putting the boxes where I tell him to.
Now that I think about it, maybe that’s why I hate the job of moving so much! But on the other hand, one of us has terrific organizational skills and one of us DOESN’T, so it does make a certain amount of sense.
Moving IS definitely an expensive and labor-intensive task, however, by being smart about how you do it, you can save yourself a lot of time, money, and aggravation.
So, let’s get started with the pre-move planning – this may be the MOST important part of your move.
