Packing Up For a Move

Prior to getting ready for a big move, do an inventory to see what you want to keep, give a way, donate, etc. You do not want to waste the time, money, and energy to pack and move items that you no longer need and want. When packing boxes, make sure you have the heavier items such as books in smaller boxes that are easier to carry and handle. The heavy boxes are stored on the bottom and lighter boxes on top. For your fragile items, make sure you have enough packing material and mark fragile on top and sides where it is visible.

Buying Your First Home

Buying your first home is very exciting. You have a down payment set aside and now you are ready. Find a good realtor to help and guide you through the process. Be realistic in finding your dream home; buy what you can afford or less. Instead of looking for the glam that you see on all the television shows, look to buy a solid home with a new roof, new HVAC, new insulation, plumbing, and new water heater. You can add the paint and glam later.
