The Real Cost of Moving: Your Paycheck, Your Time & Your Stress Level

There’s no doubt, relocating to a new home feels like a massive undertaking, doesn’t it?

From the first moment you consider a move until the final item is unpacked in your new home, you’ve got a lot on your plate. In many ways, moving feels like a second job (one you didn’t sign up and definitely aren’t getting paid for).

Many of us embrace the Midwest mentality of rolling up our sleeves and getting it done. Yes, you could hire movers, a realtor or an organizing service, but why pay someone if you could do it yourself?

Before you block out your weekends for the next six months, and get out the boxes and tape, take a step back. For many of us, taking on the huge task of moving ourselves is simply pennywise and pound-foolish.

At LifeMoves, we’re here to help. You see, your time, health and peace of mind is more valuable than you realize. We take the stress out of moving so you’re free to focus on the stuff that really matters. Whether you’re relocating to a new city or across town, there’s plenty to deal with. Outsourcing your move management will save you much more than you may first think.

How to Move with Pets: Don’t Forget Your Furry Friends!

Anyone who has been through a big move will attest: moving is stressful on ourselves and our families. But are you aware of how stressful moving is for your furry friends?

There are lots of details to keep in mind beyond simply packing up all of your belongings, like figuring out how to navigate a new city and preparing for your kids to switch schools. No doubt about it, moving comes with so many details to keep track of, Fido and Fifi may get overlooked in the shuffle.

Yet, all it takes is an open door on moving day to cause stress and heartbreak. Minimizing the stress of moving on your pets also helps prevent accidents and mishaps in a brand new space. Just as moving is stressful for humans, it’s extra stressful for animals because they don’t understand what’s happening and can’t mentally prepare for a new space.

At LifeMoves LLC, we love to look for ways to make your moving day simple, easy and stress-free. While we’ll help you organize your home and coordinate your move, prevent any added concerns by preparing and planning for your fur-babies before the big day. Explore these tips for making your move as easy as possible for your pets.

Home Organizing: The Gift She Really Wants This Christmas

We’ve all leafed through books and articles promising the perfect, stress-free life, if only we could simplify and organize our space.

We’ve worked to cultivate, curate and acquire our dream house. But getting it to the picture-perfect clutter-free dream home we see photographed in our favorite decorating magazines is no small feat!

You see, acquiring “the look” isn’t the problem–that’s simply a matter of selecting the right furniture, artwork and decor. The problem is, “life” gets in the way…and sometimes life gets overwhelming! Facing a home full of memories, it’s hard to know what, when and how to let it go.

Organizing requires time, the motivation and yes, emotional strength! It’s not a job to attempt alone.
