I lived in the same house throughout my childhood. In fact, my mom still lives in that house that my parents purchased in 1976. I always wondered why we didn't move like everyone else did. Well, now I know why. I have moved several times in my adult life, and each move was pretty much a nightmare. I think the only time it actually went somewhat smooth was when I got a new job and the company paid for movers and my relocation. Needless to say, moving is not fun for me, and I imagine I'm not the only person who feels that way.
Millions of Americans plan to move this summer. The average American has over 60 tasks to do in order to prepare for the move. If you're anything like me, you're completing 58 of those 60 tasks the day before the move, and important decisions can slip through the cracks.

Given that the average person planning a move has a “to do” list of over 60 items, it’s no wonder that some things may fall through the cracks. We get so consumed with packing boxes and getting out the door of our current home, we often forget to take care of some simple things that can really help to smooth the move and make a new house feel like a home.
Tip # 2 – Why Move the Mess
Once you check off the “plan ahead” items off your list, it’s back to business with the boxes! I encourage everyone to look around before they start packing their boxes. Especially when you see some unsightly cords or electronics – ask yourself – why move the mess?
Tip # 3 - Update & Upgrade
Because technology has become woven into so many different facets of lives– there’s a lot to think about when from both a design and technology standpoint when setting up your new home. In fact, designers have coined a term for this phenomena -- we call it “techorating.”
