This Series: The Ultimate Movers Guide won’t leave you guessing.


We purchased a new home over the Summer; it meant we had to move yet again.  This move made number 35 by my last count.  In preparation, I pulled out my checklist, the one that I can never seem to retire, and realized moving involves so much work!  I’ve taken most of the steps for granted since I’ve done it so many times, but that doesn’t automatically simplify the process.  A complete, ultimate, mover’s guide can prepare you to  tackle any move with sanity!


Whether the move is around the corner or cross-country, some organization is required.  From determining where to move to determining how to get there – a move has to be planned.  So I’ve presented a series of helpful articles [ some might even call them moving – pun totally intentioned 🙂 ], allowing you to focus on the type of move best suited to your circumstances.   I’ve successfully completed them all, and you can too.
