There are a few things that should be understood before a move is attempted:

-Moving is hard, no matter how it is done it is a back breaking job that will take more time than you wish to spend on such a task.

-The more people you invite to help means the more people you will have to help move when the time comes.

-Always feed the people who help you. This will give then strength and they deserve it.

-Beer seems like a good idea in order to get poeple to help, but be warned, the amount of beer being drank is directtly portional to the number of items that will get broken.

-If you have childern send them away or tell them to avoid you.
You will yell at them before the day is over. Just accept this fact and take the approperate actions.

-It is OK not to unpack anything that first night. however do set up the bed, no matter how late it is or how tired you are you will be glad you did this in the morning.

-Rent a truck, don't be cheap in this area.
One trip is much better than many little trips.

-Take this oppertunity to, not only pack your childern rooms, but to also throw out unused toys. This will save you time in packing and when asked by your child for the head to his Power ranger figure, You can say without guilt that it must have been lost in the move.

-Have a garage sale before you move, it will give you some extra spending cash and what you sell you will not have to move.

-A move is a good thing.
-Things will only improve from this point on.
-This move is a step up.
Keep telling yourself these things. This may be your only salvation during a period that is sure to be back-breaking phyically, draining emotionaly, and difficult mentally.

Moving can be very stressful, especially when one has been living in the same area for a number of years. It is amazing how much junk one accumulates over the years. Be ruthless! Throw out any old papers, cheque books, accounts, receipts, magazines and other useless stuff you haven't looked at for over a year!
