Relocating and Move In Must Dos

I recently relocated to Tucson from Orange County... which gave me the opportunity to "practice what you preach" on a few different items that I've recently posted about, including:

My new apt. has a fabulous view and a cute little patio, but in the first 2-3 weeks I found out quickly that it came with a plumbing leak in the shower and unfortunately, critters! Ugh.  I'm listing each of the articles I've written regarding the topics discussed, just in case they may come in handy for you or someone you know.  I have to say I'm very glad that I have documentation for some of the unfortunate things that have come up. Moving is rarely fun, but the packing tips, and move-in "How to" have  made their way to the top of the "Must Do" list that I'll continue to share with clients and readers.
