It’s Nurses Week! Thank a Nurse Today.

Nurses are special people. They are the ones who deliver bedside care at hospitals, put bandages on boo-boos at school, and provide care for people in the last moments of their lives. Nurses care for patients year-round, and in March, Americans take time to honor them by celebrating National Nurses Week.

When is National Nurses Week?

National Nurses Week is celebrated each year from May 6 through May 12. May 6 is known as National Nurses Day, and May 12 is the birthday or Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing.

Easy and Affordable House Moves

Simple House Moves

Ok, I used the words “simple” and “house moves” in the same phrase. Some may say those are words that don’t belong together; that a house move is never simple. In fact, if you know someone who’s moved recently (whether local or long distance), you may have even heard something along the lines of, “I’m never moving again!” whispered under their breath… or yelled at the top of their lungs. There’s no question that moving a house is hard work – especially if you’re moving on a budget and need to do some of the work on your own to save money. But there are ways to make it more convenient and affordable.

Moving Prices that Won’t Break the Bank

It’s no secret that moving can be expensive. That’s why so many people, like you, are searching for moving prices that are actually affordable. My best advice for people searching for prices that won’t break the bank is to start getting quotes and comparing prices as early as possible (we recommend at least two months before moving). And while you’re comparing moving prices, you’ll also want to check out what that price includes, so you know exactly what you’re getting for your money.
