If you are one of the forty million Americans who will move this year, you know the task can seem overwhelming. Now, there's help. How to Survive A Move by Hundreds of Happy People Who Did (and some things to avoid, from a few who haven't unpacked yet), offers hundreds of helpful and entertaining stories on moving from the real "pros"—everyday people who have moved and survived to tell their stories.
"Moving is one of the most challenging things you can do: Take your daily life and everything that's familiar, throw it all in the blender known as a moving truck, and see what comes out when you get to the other side. Yet it's precisely what 1 in every 7 Americans do every year," write the book's editors, Jamie Allen and Kazz Regelman. "We wanted to create a book that offered the best tips on everything from moving your pets to making friends with your new neighbors."
How to Survive A Move A Move offers a truckload of valuable relocating advice, including:
Packing Up—it actually starts with "trashing"
Professional Movers vs. Inexpensive Friends
Baby on Board—Advice for Parents

Pets—how to move a fish and calm a cat
Settling in—getting unpacked and making your new place "home"
