On our office blog, there is a post about great local bands and musicians to add your playlist. Check them out, do you have a favorite or is there one that you think should be added? I know that art is subjective but these names keeps popping up. Give them a try and let me know what you think. 12 Seattle Bands and Musicians.

It's Moving Day!

Once you've bought and sold a house it's time to move. Now this can be fun or it can be a dreaded chore. You've change the utilities, you've checked the kids school records, you've made arrangements for the pets while you move. Moving day has arrived. After checking Pinterest and downloading all the moving checklists you think you have this move all organized and are ready. Then comes the first night in your new home. You did find the linens for the beds and the kids school clothes for Monday but oh dear, you didn't think about the first few hours in that new home. My solution is a moving day kit. All you need to do is head for Target or Fred Meyer or even the local drug store and buy a clear storage container. In this box add a few things that you know  you're going to need as soon as you arrive. Several of the items that I want in my kit are:
  • Roll of toilet paper
  • Hand soap
  • Roll of paper towels
  • A few trash bags
  • All purpose cleaning spray or wipes
  • A shower curtain liner
  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • A few snacks like granola bars
  • Pain relievers
  • Plastic utensils
  • Paper plates, cups and bowls
  • Box cutter
  • Shower curtain liner
This box can be packed ahead of time and should travel in your car with you to your new home. Now at least you're ready with a few essentials to get the show on the road.
