Moving Tips 101

1. Hire movers.

2. Enlist the help of your sister and soon to be brother-in-law.

3. Have them bring Whataburger over and get so full that you are then de-motivated to do anything constructive.


3. When you defrost your refrigerator before moving and then are going to store it for 2 months....NOTE: Defrosting for more than 24 hours is not enough...you must then also leave the doors open to ensure that this does not happen. :) (yes- it's mold...the fungus among us!!)

4. Make sure that your outlet for your dryer (which is 4-pronged)...

has the same number of prong openings as does your plug (which is 3-pronged)...

before you decide to start doing the laundry.

5. Plan ahead: Buy your furniture before moving day so that it can be delivered on moving day...so that you are not eating dinner and watching the Cowboys play like this...

6. Hire movers.

7. Plan a vacation in secret so that you will accidentally be gone while all of this unpacking and cleaning and tiredness and organizing and chaos is going on. ;)

Honestly- this whole moving process hasn't been that bad at all...I was just kind of making fun of us (except for the hiring movers part...we did for the first time ever and it was wonderful!). But nevertheless...we are grateful for our house and excited about making it our home.

How exciting! Congrats on the new home being all done & getting moved. Thanks for the tips, I will try to make sure that I use them when we move in a few weeks. Although Blake insists we do not need to hire movers, so we shall see how that goes!
Love ya, Emmy
