Against The Clock: How To Move House On A TIme Limit


No matter what, moving house can be a pretty stressful experience. Okay, that might be an understatement. After all, there's a pretty good reason that moving house is up there with having a baby or starting a new job as one of the most stressful things that you'll ever actually do. However, sometimes life decides to throw an extra curveball at you altogether. If you thought moving house was stressful already, just try doing it when you suddenly find yourself racing against the clock! There are a bunch of different reasons that you might end up having to move house very quickly. Perhaps your landlord has unexpectedly told you to leave, or maybe you've simply found the perfect new house and needed to get the process moving ASAP, whatever the reason is, you're undoubtedly going to end up with a whole new set of challenges that you have to face. With that in mind, here are just a few ways that you can deal with moving house when you're on a strict time limit.

Hire a moving company

It might be a little surprising to learn, but it's actually the packing up of your belongings that can be the most stressful and time-consuming part of moving house. A lot of this comes down to the fact that it can be really tricky to know where to start, what to pack, what you'll need, and what you can afford to forget about for a while. Not only that but the act of trying to get everything packed up, especially if there are only a couple of your doing it or if you're doing it by yourself, can take up a heck of a lot of time. Fortunately, movers are there to help make the entire process far smoother and quicker. They know how things should be packed up and they often have the means to move everything in a single trip, rather than you having to fill your car up over and over.

Get organized

If you're working against the clock, then it's important that you're as organized as possible. The moment you know what your time frame for moving is, you should start thinking about what needs doing. By making a clear plan, you're able to prioritize the things that need doing and figure out how long each job is going to take. It might be tempting just to wing it but if you do that you're inevitably going to end up wasting time wondering what to do next.

Get some help

Do you have any favors that you've been waiting to call in? Now's the perfect time! Call your friends and family and offer to pay them in pizza and beer as long as they give you a hand packing your life up into boxes. Trying to handle the whole thing by yourself can be a seriously intimidating experience but, as the old saying goes, many hands make light work. You'll likely be amazed at just how quickly and easily you can get everything done with a little help from friends and family.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
