I'm currently moving from a crummy small apartment to a nice spacious house with a back yard! I'm soo happy and so are the kids. So just in case you are wondering why I haven't been posting lately, that's the reason. While I'm on the subject. Frugal moving tips!

*Don't buy your boxes get them for free from dollar stores and such.
*Use garbage bags
**Be careful when using a friend's friend to help you move, they might pull their backs or break something and they are not bonded or insured. Personally this option is good for a single person or a couple who is moving but for a family of 4 or more not so. Better hiring a moving company that's bonded and insured.
*If you need paper for cushioning breakables try the local paper recycling bin. My kid's school has a huge dumpster full of old newspapers that can be used for this purpose.
*pack ice chests with sandwiches, drinks and finger foods so you won't have to go out to eat.

Will post soon!
