Moving Made Easy

This post is brought to you by our patronWorldLabel. It was written by me, and all opinions are 100% mine.

Let’s face it: moving is not fun. It’s a pain in the butt and often brings about more stress than it really should. It’s something we all have to do at some point in our lives – and some of you may end up moving often. I feel for you, really I do! Even the most organized person can fall apart and lose things when trying to pack, move and then unpack all of their worldly possessions. The folks at WorldLabel have come up with a simple solution that can save you time – and one heck of a lot of headaches – later on.

The Master Packing Kit may seem like overkill, but you’ll thank yourself later when you can quickly and easily find everything you need simply by glancing at the box. The file will be sent to you in PDF format. You can download and fill the file in on your computer – no matter what operating system you may use. The best news of all is that this kit is absolutely free!

You’ll find labels included to help you designate which room each box goes into along with spaces for box contents. Also included is a master list, Fragile labels, This Side Up labels, To and From labels (in case you need to ship any items) and more. Once you fill them in, you can print them right from home using standard-sized letter paper of any type.

You can customize these labels to work for you. It’s easy to change your font size, type or color (as well as adding bold or italics) for the To and From shipping labels. If you’re using a PC, you can click CTRL + E. If you’re on a Mac, use Apple key + E. A toolbar will then appear giving you additional text properties. Select “More” from the font properties toolbar for additional selections in regards to your paragraph layout.

Make your next relocation easier by grabbing your free copy of this fantastic moving kit before you pack the first box.

Moving Day is Tomorrow

Dude. We’re moving. Yeah, I know you know we’re moving – this isn’t the first time I’ve mentioned that we’re moving. The point of this post isn’t to say that we’re going to move – we’re actually moving, and it all starts tomorrow morning.

We’ve been in a holding pattern, as has most of Seattle this past week (largely due to poor weather conditions); we were supposed to sign the final paperwork yesterday, according to my calendar. That’s happening tomorrow, before the movers come and move us – and remember, they were going to move us two other times before this one, so the conversation went something like this:

Movers Move Moving

We didn’t move this weekend. We were going to move, but didn’t – and I can’t tell you why we didn’t move until I know more. We thought we were moving, had prepared for the move, but didn’t actually move because of a major (read: pivotal) snag. Our house was prepared for the move, too. This was the second last minute change in plans – with the first last minute change shifting our track and direction just as dramatically. We have effectively, as movers, moved moving again. Would someone please stop this merry-go-round?
