The most important thing for most of us is remember to stay calm. Moving is unavoidably stressful and it can be easy for some of us to become so wound up with worry that we for get to just take a deep breath and relax.
Often when we post moving tips or a moving checklist, we mention the need to pack a couple of “Essentials Boxes”. But what should you put in your essentials boxes, and where should you put it during your move? What to pack in your essentials box might seem obvious at first, but there are some items on our list that might not occur to some of us until we need it once we arrive at our destination.
Moving an aquarium can be very stressful for your fish and their environment. Before your move, check with a local pet store, preferably a store that specializes in aquarium fish if you can find one in your area. Find out if they will provide “boarding” for your fish while you move or if they can place your fish in bags or containers for transporting.
House plants and potted outdoor plants are very popular. They provide wonderful decoration for our homes, they can become a hobby and source of relaxation to some, and many have been proven to be excellent air cleaners. Often, little consideration is given to house plants when planning a move and they are simply placed on the truck, this is not recommended.
