So, we are embarking on this ginormous (nice hey!) move. I know that there are MANY people out there who have a) Moved recently or b) Moved a long distance at some point in their lives. So, keeping in mind that we are on student budgets, with peanuts for relocation assistance, and only a couple (i.e. don't have to move kids accross the continent), I'm putting out a call for advice. Anyone who has moved recently or ever moved a long distance give me:
a) You HAVE to try/remember/do this :
b) You MUST avoid/run from/not do this:
c) Drive with stuff or fly and ship stuff (for a distance move):
d) What did you not bring with you when you moved that you REALLY wish you had?
e) What did you bring with you that you never once used...or bought a new one of anyways.
f) If you've ever lived on the East Coast - what is the most important thing for us West-Coasters to know when moving there?
Any and all advice will be GREATLY appreciated!!
