This is AngelaSpots. I'm finally back from my big move (our family moved from the city to the country). My time saving tip of the week is
Never move, ever.
It takes up way too much time. Moving is a PITA at the best of times but add an almost 2 year old and a 4 year old and it's a whole different ball game.
Okay so never moving again isn't practical. I do have some time, and sanity, saving tips.
Hire movers, and if you can't afford movers, hire movers just to move furniture.
Even if you're just moving a short distance, put all perishables into coolers.
Have a (or several) suitcase(s) packed with essentials for the first few days (clothing, toiletries, cleaners, snacks, toys, pet essentials etc).
If you have dogs or cats send them to a friend or board them for a couple of days.
Do everything possible ahead of time and schedual double the time you think you'll need for each task.
and most importantly
Arrange to have all of your utilities connected before hand.
We didn't realize but our internet is taking a month and a half to get installed. I'm in serious withdrawl. It's a good thing I can get on at my real job. I won't be able to post pictures with my blog posts until my home internet is installed. Until then you can surf our teams items on http://www.etsy.com keyword "busymomsteam".
