Moving from one house to a new one can be so exciting. But it’s also one of the most stressful experiences. From finding a new home, uprooting your life, and saying good-bye to friends and family. There are a lot of emotions happening in a big move. That’s why we wanted to share our moving plan and how we managed to unpack all of our boxes without going crazy!

This week we unpacked our last box from our big move into our new farmhouse. It feels like we are all settled in. But the stress from moving from Seattle, Washington to Maryland was enormous! Thankfully we hired some great movers and all went well.  Since we built our house, we had to move twice! We moved into a temporary rental townhouse while we waited for our home to be completed.  So twice the moving and lots of wondering where exactly we left things.

Thankfully we loved our real estate agents in both states and they were fantastic for helping our moves go smoothly. So a shout out to Stacy Hecht in Seattle and Richard Waxman in Baltimore, Maryland for not only helping us sell and buy our dream houses, but they also helped make sure our big cross country move went great! 

Make A Plan

Moving has a lot of working pieces that all have to come together to form a great plan. It’s hard to keep all of the notes and ideas in your head. Grab a pad of paper and make a plan for your move. Keep a list of significant phone numbers, the address of where you are going, and plan out your budget and how you are going to keep to it.

 It’s also helpful to keep a folder for all of your receipts, estimates, essential documents, and an inventory of what you are moving.

A detailed plan helps you to stay clear-headed when it is time to do the hard work. Trust me, when things start moving quickly, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and even scared. 

What’s your budget? How will you move your cars and pets? Are you moving into a temporary home first?

Make sure you have the moving company’s contact information with you in your moving folder.

Do you need to move your business too? 

Before moving, it’s time to lighten up.

Before you pack one box, find a moving company, or tell your friends you’ll pay them in pizza for helping you move, it’s time to purge. 

Go from room to room and be honest with yourself what you really need and want to take with you to your new life in your new home. This is how you will declutter your life and your new home.  Think about what you really want to box, lift, and put away in your new home. This is the time to get rid of anything broken, stained, unwanted, or won’t fit into your new life.

Donate unwanted goods to charity. The Purple Heart will even come and pick them up! Gather up canned and boxed food and donate it to your local food banks. 

What you need to know about getting moving quotes.

If you are hiring movers, you will need to get quotes. We suggest getting at least three different quotes from moving companies.  They will need to come and do an in-home assessment of how much stuff you have, how many stairs, and the distance you are moving. This is also why we suggest purging everything you can BEFORE getting quotes. Don’t pay to move junk! 

Keep in mind that certain times of the year, like June, are big moving times.  You should reserve your movers with plenty of time to get you on the schedule.

Do your homework! Research which companies work with the  U.S. Department of Transportation. Check with the Better Business Bureau regarding the mover. There are a lot of scams that happen with movers. Ask friends and family for recommendations. Don’t get your stuff held hostage!

You will want to pack some boxes on your own.

Even if you are hiring packers to move you, or moving everything on your own.  You should pack a few things on your own. These include:

  • Personal items like jewelry, keepsakes, baby books, and important files should be packed and moved with YOU. Don’t rely on the movers to take these boxes. 
  • Fragile items and heirlooms- you want to make sure these are packed with utmost care.
  • Items you will want to unpack first- dishes, pet supplies, toys, etc.

You also want to disconnect all computers and back them up on the Cloud.

Take photos of any high-ticket items. Note any existing scratches, dings, or damage to your furniture.

Prepare yourself, your pets, and your family for the big move.

Even if you are just moving down the street, moving is stressful for everyone.  There is a change in schedule, new environments, and for a while, nothing is where it belongs. Planning ahead, playing music, and planning a few fun breaks can make the day go smoother. 

2 weeks before moving day, make sure the kids and pets have been checked by their doctors and have their shots current.  If flying, pets need to be seen by the vet a week before the flight to make sure they are healthy enough for the flight. The vet will write a letter stating they are fit to fly. 

Pets can easily get frightened during the big move. Plan to take them to a friend’s house or kennel the day of the move to ensure they don’t run away and get lost. 

Note: You can not move flammable items like gas cans, fuel for the BBQ, tiki torches, ect. Ask friends if they would like them and share the love!

Pack a suitcase for everyone with the essential you will need for the first week. Don’t forget your toothbrush and favorite book!

No packing should be done on the day of the move. If you hire packers, they will come a day or two before moving day.

On moving day, you must be there to make sure it all goes well. 

It might surprise you how many people think that they can hire a moving company and leave it all up to them.  But there are a lot of questions that must be answered and things that must be done on-site the day of the move.  If you’re looking for a quality moving company, Weston Moving & Storage  is the company you want to accompany you every step of the way. This commercial moving company in Broward County,  is there to help keep costly damages to a minimum and hiring a reputable local moving service for your business ensures everything is managed in an organized manner to not only help you but others as well! YOu can rely on them to help move your office from the metropolitan area and surrounding ares as well as making getting back to work quickly and efficient.

Their office mover provides fast services at affordable prices that you can feel good about. We always have donuts and coffee for early movers and order pizza for delivery for the afternoon. Don’t forget paper plates and napkins. Before the truck leaves, do a walk through to make sure nothing has been left behind. This is also when you should give them their tips.

Tips for unloading in your new home.

In your new home, tape names to doors to assist movers; map out the floor layout so movers know what’s going where; finally, prepare your new home for moving to prevent any damage.

You want to make sure you are there while they are unloading. There will be a lot of questions of where things go. You also want to make sure items are not damaged, check the inventory list, and you will need to sign any documents. Tackle some of the fun projects first, like hanging your favorite pictures, setting up the bed and exploring. Moving can stink, but when you plan ahead and have help, it sucks a little less. I hope we helped you find some tips for your big move.  

Six Facts You Should Know Before Moving to Florida

(All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

Are you thinking about moving to the Sunshine State? Florida has so much to offer, from unspoilt beaches and ocean-facing houses to great schools and an immersive culture that’s ideal for families and retirees alike.

Discover the facts you need to know before you make the move to the Sunshine State: 

Luxury properties mean you’ll be spoilt for choice

Whether you have a generous budget and are considering Vero Beach luxury homes, or you’re moving with retirement in mind and the famous golf courses of the Gulf Coast are at the top of your wish list, when you search for properties in Florida, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Whether you see yourself overlooking miles of unspoilt beach in a family home, or you’re searching for a property with nightlife, restaurants and glamour in mind, you’ll find famous landmarks, gated communities, great schools and ocean-facing properties in abundance throughout the Sunshine State. If you’re unsure of which region you want to reside in, start with a list of your essentials and factors that are important to your chosen lifestyle and begin your search from there.

Tourists are part of the culture

Living in a state that is famous for its landmarks, landscapes, beaches, theme parks and persistent sunshine and heat, doesn’t just attract homeowners and families looking for a better life. Tourism is a huge part of life in Florida and moving to the Sunshine State means dealing with large numbers of visitors throughout the year. Florida is renowned for being a friendly, welcoming state so make sure you keep up appearances!

Southern Florida and its hurricanes

Although Florida is famous for its heat, it’s just as infamous for its severe weather conditions, particularly in the South of the state where hurricanes are prevalent during the aptly named “Hurricane Season”, which typically lasts between June and November each year. Before moving to Florida, it’s worth reading up on hurricane safety and the precautions that many residents take every year to protect their homes.

Be ready for election fever

Florida is a swing state, which means casting votes here carries a lot of weight and influence. As a major swing state, residents can expect election fever to sweep their locality in the run-up to presidential elections every four years. This means flyers, ads, knocks at your door, TV crews, and even heated debates with friends, family and colleagues during this dramatic period. Something worth keeping in mind if you’re not currently politically minded!

It’s not all for retirees

Retirees and seniors are everywhere in Florida, after all, wouldn’t you like to retire somewhere warm, friendly, and tax-friendly? However, don’t let this demographic put you off moving to the Sunshine State. While seniors might be in abundance, Florida is a diverse and captivating location, with something for all ages, families, singletons and couples alike.

And finally, the cost of living is low

Thanks to its generous stance on income tax, and its utilities coming in cheaper than the national average, Florida can certainly mean a cheaper cost of living, allowing you to enjoy the life you want for yourself and your family, without breaking the bank.

3 Tips on How to Promote Good Humor in Your Children

This post is sponsored by Community Care Plan. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 

While the past year has definitely been one of challenges and uncertainties, my family and I decided that we were going to make the most of every situation. One of the ways that we have learned to deal with unfortunate circumstances is by finding humor. I firmly believe that laughter and good humor truly are the best medicine for the soul. Good humor and laughter not only provide a great way for us to connect as a family, but it also provides a sense of positive self-esteem and makes life more enjoyable overall.

Did you know that April is National Humor Month? National Humor Month is meant to bring awareness to humor and to showcase how it can bring therapeutic value in our everyday lives. In fact, the creator of National Humor Month, Larry Wilde, stated, “The idea of laughing and the use of humor as a tool to lift ailing spirits is growing. Scientific research now indicates that the curative power of laughter and its ability to relieve debilitating stress and burnout may indeed be one of the great medical discoveries of our times.”

The people at Community Care Plan appreciate how good humor, particularly in children, promotes a positive impact on the health and wellness of those around them. There’s a reason that Community Care Plan is known as the health plan with a heart.

Speaking of getting healthy, did you know that scientific research has proven that humor is a tool to relieve stress while helping us to heal emotionally and physically? When it comes to humor in children, I think it is important for them to realize that laughing and good humor is not only good for the soul, but it can make them feel good physically as well. There is just something about a good old-fashioned laugh that makes your entire body feel good!

Statistics have shown that children are believed to laugh 10 as much daily as the average adult. Therefore, good humor should be a vital part of their life! Here are several ways that we can help to promote and encourage good humor in children:

  1. Create an environment that promotes humor in children.

It’s true that laughter improves your mood and makes you feel better. This is why good humor inside the home is so important. Create a positive environment and teach your children that even in the midst of difficult circumstances you can still laugh, have a good time, and be happy. Our children will look back at our time together at home and remember the laughs that they had as a family. They will especially remember those challenging times and how we as parents tried to promote a positive view of the situation. Laughter is so very good for the soul.

  1. Teach children that it is okay to be funny and to have humor.

My husband and I want our boys to know that laughing and having good humor is a vital part of our lives. If our boys see us laughing and having good humor, then they are more likely to follow suit. We want them to realize that people want to be around those who are happy and have a good sense of humor. Laughter is contagious. The ability to laugh and to have good humor shows our personality. The more we laugh, the more that others will want to be around us. In fact, one of the qualities that I admire in most people is their ability to laugh and to have a good sense of humor.

It is okay to be funny.

It is okay to laugh.

It is okay to be silly.

I guarantee that our children will remember the memories that are made of laughter and silliness more than any other in their lives. Let’s teach them that laughter is good for our relationships, both in-home and out in the world.

  1. Be a good role model and showcase good humor in your life.

Not only am I a parent, but I am a Paraprofessional Educator as well. Being an educator allows me to be a good role model to those children that I come in contact with each week. One of the ways that I can be a good role model is to promote good humor among my students. I want them to see that I am funny and witty, and that even though things may not always go as planned, that I can still have a good attitude and humor about the situation before me. I can’t tell you how many times that I have said something, and it came out the wrong way. I just laughed about it and did not get flustered. This, in turn, made my students laugh. I have learned to laugh at the little annoyances that may take place in the classroom, and to not take myself so seriously.

Happy National Humor Month! Don’t forget to take some extra time today to laugh with your children and those around you! I love this quote from Charles Dickens, “There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor.” Spread joy today and remember that laughter is medicine for the soul!

I have a little secret for you. My youngest son Brady is 8 years old, and to this day, I still use Baby Magic products on him!

Baby Magic nourishes baby’s skin with wholesome ingredients and is Dermatologist recommended for a baby’s delicate skin.
