    GREAT tips. We are lucky to have Tobei’s work pay for movers everytime we move but one big thing they stress is a first to unpack box with bedding, curtains and whatever else we may need to spend first night in new home.

    Thank you for the tips! We aren’t moving anytime soon but I’m going to incorporate your ideas into my spring cleaning regimen. I love how you offered the checklists…they are perfect!

    I wish I came across this just over a year ago. Moving was crazy. I know it’s always good to have a plan but it seems like it would be easier to follow a list already made. It would take the stress out of it compared to trying to create one myself.

    Oooo, I like the idea of the beds being one of the first things you set up. I do remember sleeping on the floor a few times…without a pillow! Must remember this when moving time arrives.
