What should I pack first?
Mark Twain once said, “If it’s your job to eat a frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it’s your job to eat two frogs, it’s best to eat the biggest one first.” What great advice for those planning a move across the country! When you’re dealing with an overwhelming task like packing up your house – where you know you have to do it, but you don’t know where to start – why not tackle the “big frog” first? You’ll be glad you did.

The key to an easy move is organization. If you start out organized, it’s more likely that you’ll end organized. And if you’ve ever moved before, you know ending feeling organized is a task in itself!
The best thing you can do before you start the packing process is start early and de-clutter. Don’t move what you don’t need. Trust me; you’ll save energy and money in the long run.
