Moving Soon? Read This!
No, no, no…. neither of us is moving and this is NOT an announcement that either of us bought a new house. But even though we have no immediate plans to move, we still plan to chat all about moving today. Weird, right? Allow us to explain…
Did you guys know that we write weekly blog posts for our friends over at HireAHelper? We absolutely LOVE this opportunity, so much so that we have been writing these posts for over 2 years on their blog! <– that’s over 100 posts about all things moving.
If you remember from this post, Casey used HireAHelper when she moved from St. Louis to Chicago a few years ago. And she used them again when moving into her current home. She absolutely loved her experience with HireAHelper, and one thing led to another, and now we are proud to be a mini part of the HireAHelper blog space. Like we said, we write about ALL things moving, which has included but is not limited to topics like… staging a home to sell, what to overlook when house hunting, how to make your home “smarter”, tips for cleaning, organizing, labeling — I mean you name it and we have probably chatted about it over there.
But recently we realized that OUR DIY Playbook readers (especially those who are moving, just moved, or want to move soon) may like to sift through some of these informative/real-life topics.
Like what information or documents should you get from your child’s school before you move to a new district? How do I pack a box like a pro? Or where can I buy the cheapest boxes and for sale signs for my upcoming move? Well, well, well… we have done LOTS of research on these things so you don’t have to…especially during such a BUSY time in your life.
Here’s a list of some of our favorite posts from HireAHelper so far:
