October 29th, 2013 - 4:10 PM

Did moving leave you frazzled? Sit back and relax!

We feel your pain: you’ve been moving all day long. And whether the move took a few days or a few hours, to say you’re tired would be an understatement. You know what you need? A little relaxation. You deserve it. So forget about unpacking those moving boxes; you can get to that later (seriously, it’s not like they’re going anywhere!). Instead, give yourself a pat on back with these stress-free ways to relax.

  1. Dig through the wardrobe box and find your comfiest set of PJs and house slippers. Instant relaxation.

Rent a Truck

October 25th, 2013 - 12:02 PM

Do you want to rent a truck?

If you're trying to save money on a cross-country move, intuition may tell you that you have to rent a truck. And that thought may cause concerns that make you dread moving. Am I choosing the right size rental truck? Can I drive that far in a huge vehicle that I’m not familiar with? How am I going to drive it through large cities? How difficult will it be to tow my vehicle? Will my stuff be safe parked in a hotel parking lot overnight? Once I pay for gas, taxes and insurance, how much will it really cost to rent a truck? Is there a better way to move?
