A Round Up of Moving Tips

Today, I’m bringing you on a whirlwind tour of five seven fantastic websites that offer up useful tips and strategies on moving. Check out these moving tips from Life Lessons of a Military Wife, Army Wife Network, FlyLady, The Nest Effect, Find Joy in the Journey, The Joyful Organizer and Movers-Edge.

We start our tour at Life Lessons of  a Military Wife where we see exactly what we need to do before our next PCS. While we are at it, we can figure out how to do that property inventory we have been meaning to get around to someday. She has tons of other tips on how to make your PCS a success, too!

Army Wife Network teaches us how to put together a “PCS Central” notebook and gives some great all around tips on the PCS move in their post, PCS Preparedness.

If you have never heard of Flylady, it is time that you do! She is the nicest and most down-to-earth person that I don’t actually know. She feels like one of my favorite aunties as she helps me to have a more organized, uncluttered and clean house. Here is her take on moving tips!

At Nest Effect, I found some pretty cool printable labels to make your move a bit more organized. I found that post on Pintrest and love the labels.  Find Joy in the Journey has a great printable moving log available on the post how to move 1000 miles and keep track of your stuff.

The Joyful Organizer reminds us to make sure we have copies of our family’s medical records with us when we move and tons of other tips on the post Get Moving!

I love the idea of having an “Open Me First” box that is mentioned in Movers-Edge 101 Best Moving Tips.

What is your best moving tip or your favorite place to get moving tips?
