  22. My best moving tips are 1) lay out a flat sheet on the floor and place your hanging clothes on the sheet and tie it up to transport and 2) leave a sheet on the mattress so that while moving it won't get dirty corners.

  23. For several months beforehand, or as soon as you know you'll be moving, try to make a list of the contact information for every business that sends you mail. Then you can give them all your new address as soon as possible. Filing a USPS change of address form to get your mail forwarded is only temporary, and any business you don't contact directly may keep sending mail to your old address for years to come.

  24. Rafflecopter doesn't have a text box for telling you which other post we commented on, so here it is: http://mythoughtsideasandramblings.com/2012/07/06

  25. Label, label, label! Though you know what you're packing as you do it, you won't by the time you get everything moved and switched around. Labeling is a life saver!

    get rid of everything you can before the big day

  27. I'm moving in a couple weeks, so it's great to read everyone's tips here. Ever since we put in our bid, we've been saving up boxes. I'll be sure to clearly label the top and bottom and final destination of every box we pack.

  28. Don't think you can do it all yourself! It's worth it to pay someone to pack for you.
