Moving and Transitions

Whether he's moving, she's moving, or you're both moving . . . ,

Having someone move in with you? Learning to share space?
These may require fewer boxes but be no less complicated and challenging!


Things to Consider

  • Who's moving?
  • Where and how far are they moving?
  • When can they move (when will the new home be ready to start receiving their stuff)?
  • What kind of help do they have available?
  • Plus: moving safely, efficiently, and inexpensively.
  • Consolidating goods.



Tips and Ideas

  • Plan ahead!
  • Label all boxes
  • Pack like things together, whenever possible
  • Don't try to pack everything at the last minute
  • Always purge before you pack
