How To Prepare Moving Your Family Home

Moving homes brings with it a mixture of excitement and anxiousness. While you are excited to be starting the next stage of your life, in a new area, not everyone may feel the same way, especially if you are moving as a family. So, how do you prepare your loved ones for the move? To start with, the whole endeavor will be much easier if you choose a new neighborhood that everyone likes and is much better than the previous. That being said, kids can still have a hard time adapting to a new school and making new friends, so it is always best to prepare them for it ahead of time. Further, you will have to pack your current home, and of course, hire movers that will make the whole process much easier for everyone.

Choosing the right neighborhood

The first and most important step of a move is choosing the right neighborhood. The whole family should be involved in making this decision, and you must consider a variety of factors when choosing it. Firstly, how far away is it from where you work? Another big aspect to consider is the level of safety in the neighborhood, especially if you have kids. Is it a family area? Are the neighbors friendly? Remember to ask yourself these types of questions.

Preparing the kids

Preparing kids for moving home is always harder than the adults because they will have a harder time understanding why the huge change is necessary. It’s important for the adults to be open to any questions they ask, and you should make a point of highlighting all of the fun new aspects of the new home. In addition to simply talking about the new location, it is also important to take them there several times so they can get a betters sense of the place (not to mention start the process of creating memories early!).

Packing the current home

Packing all of your belongings in boxes is not a fun process, but you can do your best to make it more exciting for the whole family. Consider playing some music while organizing everything that you will be taking with you. Moreover, remember to only do a little bit at a time, instead of rushing to pack everything and causing chaos in the process.

Hiring Movers

The very last step in preparing for the move is to hire the professionals that will help bring all of your belongings to the new home. There are tons of household movers to choose from depending on the area you are from, with one example being Meyer Movers, as they can assist with both a local and international move. Do not forget about this part, as it will make your move experience much easier.

Getting organized and planning ahead are both important factors to consider when you are preparing to move your family home. Already, this can be a stressful time for everyone, especially with everything else that goes on in everyday life. That is why it is important to maintain the right type of attitude throughout the move, and of course, choose a new location that you are excited about making new memories in.

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,
