Moving Tip Monday: Get Your Kids Involved

It can be difficult for kids when they are moving and it’s hard to get them involved when there are so many moving parts and big items to move.  Consider getting them involved by having them decorate and label their own boxes for packing!  This will make it fun and exciting for them and be helpful for you when you unpack.

Moving Tip Monday: Self Moving Tips

From Movinggal.com:
Moving heavy items while relocating to another place can take a toll on your back. The best way to avoid back injury while on the move is to utilize legs for lifting items instead of your back. Squat down, grasp the item and pick it up placing weight on your legs instead of your back. By exerting pressure on leg muscles you will be able to avoid back injury. You can simplify the process of lifting boxes by distributing weight of boxes evenly. This can be done by packing items in various boxes, instead of loading all items in one single box.

Moving Tip Monday: Donate Used Home Goods

When you are you starting your move, you may find that some of your home goods will need to be moved on.  Perhaps they are only gently used and still work.  If so, consider donating furniture, appliances, extra construction supplies (such as tiles, shingles, windows, etc) and home goods like decor to Habitat for Humanity’s Restore.  We recommend our local Habitat for Humanity ReStore for North Central MA.  If your items can’t fit into your car, give them a call, they can usually arrange to pick up the items.  Even better, pick up a receipt from them so you can write off your donations on your taxes.

Moving Tip Monday: Appliances

When you move, you’re likely going to leave behind some appliances.  Maybe a stove, washer and dryer or other smaller appliances.  Leave behind any system warranties and manuals.  Also, if you’ve had these appliances serviced, leave behind who the service provider was and any information on service provided.
