Let's Get Moving

   

Let's Get Moving

   Moving out of town isn't really as awful as some people think. It just takes a lot of hard work, determination and organization. The most helpful tip for me when I was relocating was to start throwing away items I knew we hadn't used in awhile. I started purging the closets 4-5 months in advance so when it was time to start packing, I knew we were taking everything that I kept.

   People tend to get frustrated because while you're packing, you come across a lot of useless items that should've been tossed out years ago. It starts to feel hopeless after awhile because you feel like you're not making any progress. You look up one day and realized you haven't really started packing, you've just been getting rid of old items. To avoid a possible meltdown, start getting rid of things early. Even though some people are excited to start packing, take your time and carefully eliminate the useless items.

  In order to avoid throwing away important documents, don't rush the process. Tackle the kids room while they're in school so there's no protest while throwing out old toys. If you're having a hard time deciding what to keep, ask yourself one question: have I used this item in the last year? If not, toss it. I hope this helps you guys to get things in motion.

Relocation hesitation.

   

Relocation hesitation.

   There are many people who secretly want to move to another city but the number one reason they don't is because they fear being in a new environment and not knowing anyone. "Who will I call for help? Who will babysit the kids? What if I get sick?" Those are all valid points to consider before you actually move out of town especially if you have more than two children with no other adult to help in the household. 

   I figured it would help if there were some type of app to let people know even though they are in a new city, they're not alone. Yes, it will be rough at times but you get the hang of it just like everything else. The kids find new friends, you meet new people at your new job and before you know it, your family comes to visit which is the best part by the way. 

   You will randomly meet people from your hometown which will advice you on the best school districts, who's hiring and awesome social clubs for the kids. Use MIBUDDY to connect with people in your new city before you actually move.

MIBuddy Introduction

   

MIBuddy Introduction

   I've lived out of town for almost seven years now bouncing between Michigan, to North Carolina and now settled in Houston, TX so I know relocating can be frustrating. Whether you moved for a new job opportunity, college or just to get away for awhile, learning a new city can be tough. Anybody that has lived out of town knows there is no better feeling than randomly meeting someone that's from your hometown in your new city. A conversation is sparked just from them noticing your college team hat, your accent or your out of town vehicle plate. 

   They ask how you like it, how long you've been here and when was the last time you've been home. Believe it or not, those small conversations give you the same feeling of bumping into an old high school buddy in the grocery store except you've never met this person before. Weird, right?

   It's crazy how talking to a complete stranger from your hometown gives you a sense of comfort and somehow makes you feel less lonely even if it's just for a few moments. I know firsthand everyone needs an out of town buddy so that's why I created MIBUDDY.
