Book Review — “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Smart Moving”

coverUnless you’re Flat Stanley, moving is nothing to look forward to. That said, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Smart Moving can make the process a little less stressful for the three-dimensional among us. Beyond the valuable how-tos on packing stemware and dollying refrigerators, author Dan Ramsey covers lots of moving subjects:

  • Where’s the money coming from for this move? Should I ask my employer?
  • How do I estimate the cubic-foot volume of my possessions?
  • What do I need to do — and by when — so I don’t miss something important?
  • What do I really need to move to the new place? What do I do with everything else?

Marred only by unattractive line art, this book is great. The writing style is humorous and solid with concrete ideas, and even covers issues like saying goodbye to the old place, helping children understand and get on board, moving pets, and how to run a successful moving sale.

You may need to buy this used, or look for it in your library, but I highly recommend it.
