I used to be a military wife, and moving was a natural part of life for us. We had 5 children, and over the years, I have found some very helpful tips to make our move go a little more smoothly without losing or forgetting essential items. The first thing that I learned to make the move less stressful was to start packing items that we weren't using right away and wouldn't use until after the move first and place the boxes/totes neatly in closets of room they belonged in; or even neatly in the corner of that room. Second was to write a list of everyone from Doctor to Newspaper carrier, to notify of change of address. Besides the obvious, pack and label each box or tote appropriately, I learned that it was also helpful to number each as well. I also found it a lot more helpful in finding things by taking inventory of each box/tote. So, each time I labeled a box/tote, I marked a notebook as well. For instance, in my notebook, I had a sticky tab with Living Room on it, that is the page I used to organize my inventory for the living room. T-1, encyclopedias. let me know that the tote that was marked Living Room-1 had my encyclopedias in it. It can be time consuming, but it saves further aggravation later on when it comes to finding what you need when you need it.

Tips that should help during your move: 1. start packing things that you dont need. 2. dont used ordinary cartons or boxes. 3. clean the house once all the boxes transferred or taken away.
