Preparing for My Move

So the sale of my home was approved and I can finally prepare to move. I have been staying with my parents while I looked for a home, bought it and then prepared it for my arrival. I painted the walls, changed out the flooring and cleaned it up the way that I would like it. But now the hard part begins. I have to pack up the belongings I have at my parents and take the belongings I have in storage and move them into my new home. I don’t know about all of you, but I really dislike moving. Even though I should be used to it, constantly moving is something that you really never get used to. However, fortunately for me, this should be the last time, or at least the last time in a long time, that I have to do this, so that helps to motivate me.

Another advantage I have with this move is that my brother lives here and I know he will help me move. So at least I won’t be relying on friends to help me move my heavy boxes or furniture. At times I think that I should just hire a mover, especially since I am well off and can afford it. But other times, I realize I don’t have much going on in my life so I have plenty of time to move myself. And then I think that I can forego the movers and spend money on Cardinals memorabilia instead, and so I decided to end up moving myself.

I know many of you have moved a lot in your lives as well, so do you have any moving tips that make transporting goods or unloading and unpacking any easier? If so, I would love to here them. Wish me luck with the move and much luck with everything you all have planned this week.
