America's #1 Cleaning Expert, Don Aslett, has come up with 10 commandments to use when moving.  If you are expecting to move soon you'll want to note these to make for a smoother move.

Don says to always double the amount of garbage bags and boxes you think you will need and it will be just right.  Nothing is worse than stopping to get more boxes when you are on a roll.  This prevents us from over-loading or cramming the wrong sized stuff in the wrong size box.  

Don't be afraid to GET HELP!  Even if you hate to ask, don't shy away from asking your friend with that big pickup (besides, they're usually proud to show them off!) Remember, 100 pound items are reduced to 50 pounds apiece with just one extra helper.

If you've never liked to hold garage sales just take a deep breath and make plans for one when you're about to move.  Just about any neighbor comes by or joins you in the sale can help the move and that's a deal.

ALWAYS START EARLY.  Nothing is worse than to start moving at noon and finish at 9PM or 10PM when stores are closed and it's dark.  Get started at 6 AM in the morning and be done at 2PM and you can still have friends and a good attitude.

PLAN AHEAD!  You'd be surprised how many people become ill or get injured while moving.  There's always the strain, change of plan, plus the stress of time factors.  Emotionally and physically it takes many people weeks, even years of recovery.  Planning ahead of a move instead of during the move is a lifesaver.  Make all the decisions weeks before you start, the rest will be arithmetic.

Meet me here next week for the next of Don's 10 Move Commandments.
