Lessons Learned From Moving

  1. We have way too much stuff. De-cluttering is my friend.
  2. Maintenance cleaning is my friend. It will save a lot of time when it comes to cleaning when moving out of a rental.
  3. It is possible to find a house and get moved in in less than a month.
  4. When you find out you have to move, start packing right away.  De-clutter as you go along.  Be willing to part with as much as you can.
  5. You find out how helpful family and friends are. We could not have completed this move without good friends, our parents, and my sister and brother-in-law.
  6. Take time to rest. I have been way to tired with this move especially since I still worked my full-time house while moving.
  7. Local moves can be worse than long distance moves.  With long distance you have to be ready to move and have everything packed up, unlike a  local move where you can pack a box and move it.  Drags the process out way too much.
  8. God is faithful. He lead us to a great house that we were able to move into right away.  We are loving our new place even if it is the same size or smaller.  The way the house is laid out is great for us.  I love having larger bedrooms and a nice size living room.
