How Your Family Can Avoid Moving Day Headaches

If you’re about to move into a new house, you need to start planning for the moving day itself. It’s something that anyone can do, and it can save you all kinds of trouble. Very few people have a completely smooth moving day, but if you make the right plans and preparations, there’s no reason why you can’t. Here’s how your family can avoid moving day headaches.

Pack a First Night Box

There should be one box that you back that’s easy to gain access to. This is the box that should contain all of the things that you will need on the first night in your new home. It means that you won’t have to unpack all of your boxes to find the few things you need as soon as you move in. It’s a great way to make that transition into your new home that much smoother and less stressful.

Keep Your Essential Documents and Files Together

There are so many documents and pieces of paperwork that you need to have in order when you're moving house. You don’t want to lose any of that paperwork, and that’s why you should keep it secure and together. That way, you won’t have different documents scattered all over the place. When you’re moving into a new house, that’s nothing but a recipe for disaster. Find a binder or folder that you feel is secure, and don’t misplace it on the big day.

Work With Reputable Companies

You need to make sure that you work with the most reputation companies when you’re moving. If you don’t work with the kind of people you can trust, you will be far more likely to experience problems and stress. Places like Moving Day can help you out. And there are many other professional services providers you can rely on too. Do your research and find one which you feel most comfortable trusting with your possessions.

Label Every Box

Labelling your boxes is such a simple thing to do, but it can keep your possessions safe and avoid damage and breakages. If the labels are not clear, you won’t be able to read them, so be careful that you write neatly. When everything is labelled, you will know where and how things should be stacked in the moving truck. You don’t want to stack heavy things on top of delicate items that could easily break.

Ensure Your Boxes Can Withstand the Weight

Finally, you need to make sure that the boxes you use are capable of holding the weight you’re putting in them. There are so many things that can go wrong if you use weak boxes or try to load them up with too much weight. It’s a easy mistake to make, but it can cause so much damage and loss. There are many boxes on the market, so don’t just opt for the cheapest. Find the ones that will be most suitable for your move.

Your moving day can be very stressful if you get it wrong. So, make the most of the ideas above to avoid those dreaded moving day headaches.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
