The months of May and June signify the end of the spring semester at colleges throughout the country and the official start of summer; it's also the time that students begin to plan their return home. College graduates and students often wonder about the best way to transport and store the belongings they've accumulated through the academic year.
Ah, spring cleaning! It’s a term that either inspires excitement or anxiety. No matter how you view spring cleaning, getting organized and swapping out seasonal items is a good way to get prepared for the upcoming months.
Long-term traveling is a lot like moving in that you’ll need to go through what you have to figure out what to keep and what to get rid of. Give those things you don’t want to charity stores like the Goodwill (don’t forget to get receipts for tax write-offs) or sell them on classified websites like Craigslist. Also, consider having a yard sale.
It’s that time of the year again. College freshmen everywhere are preparing to move away from home and into dormitories. For many young people, this will be the first experience of living independently. It’s an exciting time, but also one that can make a lot of people nervous.
You’ve just moved into your new home and are starting to get settled. But now that everything is out of all the boxes you used to pack, you’re wondering what to do with all that cardboard, bubble wrap and newspaper filling. To throw those things out would seem such a waste.
You may only be a renter but when you move it’s still necessary to choose an apartment, condominium or house that will give you the most satisfaction. That’s why it’s important to consider whether a rental property is low maintenance, energy efficient, comfortable and accessible to the places you need to go.
Moving is one of the most anxiety-provoking events you’ll ever deal with. In fact, a recent moving poll showed that 52% of those surveyed experienced very high moving day stress levels.
Did you know that the average American generates over 1600 pounds of garbage a year? You may not see this on a daily basis but it becomes more evident the moment you begin unpacking from a move.
Moving is hard work: it’s also not cheap to do. But you don’t need to break the bank to get to your next home: with some careful advance planning, you’ll be able to get to where you need to go and save money at the same time.
No matter how organized you may be–or think you may be–for your next move, chances are that you’ll still manage to forget some detail. This is especially true when you’re dealing with those belongings that you don’t ordinarily focus on daily.
