Moving Tips for Families | Best Moving Apps

If you haven’t done so already and you are planning for a move, you have to know that moving with kids can be an absolute nightmare. I was originally going to name this post 5 Hacks for Moving With Kids Less Stressful and then as I was thinking about my own move that I just recently did(during the holidays, which was just a terrible decision) I was like there was nothing easy about it! That is the plain truth there is no work around or short cut so the word “hack” was out of the question because you are probably going to be so emotionally and physically exhausted by the end of your move you will want to vegetate for a whole month. Therefore, I came up with the 5 Apps I used to make moving just a tiny bit better for you.

#5 Walabot DIY

This wall scanner app helps identify where metal studs, wood studs, pipes, wires and cables, conduit, and tracking pests and rodents. It does cost around $90 but it helps put less holes in your walls.

#4 Facebook Marketplace

When I had to let go of my desk unit that wouldn’t fit into my new office space. I simply snapped a photo with a short description on Facebook Marketplace tons of interest came in with people messaging me about it. I sold it for $200 in 2-3 days which was great and we can all use some extra cash right?

#3 Instacart

The first couple weeks as you are still unpacking all your kitchen stuff, you cant find anything! If you are anything like me you need everything organized and in its place until you can function again. With Instacart you can order your groceries and have them delivered or pick up yourself. Who has time to go food shopping when you are unpacking? For delivery you can choose your delivery window which is convenient. It does include a driver tip section from $0 to 20% or other amount. Its always good to include a tip after all that person spent all that time getting the groceries you need.

#2 TaskRabbit

The workers here are super professional and they even have movers here as well. Its as easy as 1-2-3 to pick your contractor based on their skills, previous jobs, reviews, and hourly rate they require. Then you pick what you need done from help moving, furniture assembly, mounting TVs mirrors, home repairs, cleaning, and winterizing your home. All for great rates and everyone has to pass a background check. I personally used them to help move some very heavy furniture which I was going to rent a truck out and cost me more money but you can pick to choose a contractor that requires having a truck — this saved me so much hassle!

#1 Door Dash

Moving is so darn hectic that even if you planned ahead of time and made sandwiches it just wouldn’t be enough food. I mean the hunger level was way above normal because you are moving boxes and burning up more energy. Door Dash app was super easy and to save money on the delivery fees I chose the restaurants nearby in the category “First Order, $0 Delivery Fee” or the ones that said “Free delivery over $12”.

Other Helpful Things that I used in my home are:

  1. My obsession with command hooks. you can command hook just about anything! We are anti wall hole makers and this is the ultimate solution. I love art and that means I hang up art pieces in the home which means hole in the walls. This time around since I purchased a new construction home, I thought last minute about command hooks and purchased a bunch and probably will return the ones I did not use.
  2. Litter Robot – they are pricey but so worth the $600. I bought the bundle package on Black Friday Sale since we moved around that time and it has made life a lot easier with that thing. Get $25 off your purchase at checkout here: http://share.litter-robot.com/M22VD
  3. Ruggable – washable rugs to make your life a tiny bit easier. Just pop them in the washer and dryer and they are clean, who said cleaning had to be so much work? I love Ruggable – the washable area rug that will fit into your washing machine! Here is 15% off your first purchase. http://rug.life/owILN
  4. Norwex – Talking about cleaning i knew I wanted to change to this from a while ago, and I should’ve sooner. i think it took this move to really motivate me that things are going to be different this time around. My journey of less chemicals does not start here but let me tell you boy am i glad I switched to the light side of the force. with Norwex you clean with just water and the cloths have embedded silver particles which disinfect the cloth and you don’t need to wash after every use. It’s a genius of a system and I even became sales consultant because I love all their products so much and for the 35% discount – I just had to take advantage!
