What You Should Throw Out Before Moving To Mt. Pleasant


temp-post-image



I don’t know about you, but in the past when moving I have had more than my share moments where I felt like just throwing everything out and starting over.



Seems easier doesn’t it?



Of course, that would be pretty wasteful and expensive. So although we can’t just toss out everything, there are some items that you should definitely toss in the trash, sell, or donate rather than pack up and move to your new home. That is exactly what today’s post is all about; I’m giving you full guilt-free permission to rid yourself of everything on this list and I hope it makes your move to Mount Pleasant a million times easier.



Happy moving my friends!

Fun Family Day Trips Around Mt. Pleasant

As parents. It can be hard enough as it is just to hold it all together in our day-to-day lives. Balancing work, relationships, self-care, and family can be so overwhelming that it becomes harder and harder to create meaningful memories with the kids. One of the easiest ways to create moments and memories as a family is to start planning more day trips to local attractions. I love the idea of scheduling a day trip once a month or at least once a quarter so we can unplug from our phones and engage with one another in a way that brings us more joy and appreciation for where we live. With that in mind, I have assembled this list of fun family day trip ideas around Mount Pleasant.

What Should You Look For In A Mt. Pleasant Realtor?

Getting ready to buy or sell real estate in Mount Pleasant? If you are anything like most people, you know it is in your best interest to arm yourself with a tenacious Realtor. However, many people struggle to know what they are supposed to look for in a real estate agent and as a result, they choose the wrong one!



I am not trying to scare you but the truth is if you hire the wrong real estate agent it can have massively negative consequences like:



  • The destruction of a personal relationship like a friend

  • The loss of thousands or millions of dollars to the point of bankruptcy

  • Nasty lawsuits

  • And so much more!



I am always so heartbroken to hear these horror stories. Especially, when they could h...

Is It Too Late In The Year To Move To Mt. Pleasant?


temp-post-image



It is common knowledge that most people prefer to move in the Summer. Not only do people like to move in the Summer because the weather is nice but parents often think it will be easier because the kids will be off from school. In fact, many people schedule an entire move or wait to buy a house until the Spring and Summer for this reason.



So you may be sitting there wondering if it is simply too late (or early) in the school year for you and your family to move to paradise in Mount Pleasant. I understand where you are coming from with these concerns but that theory that you should only move during the Summer months can be very damaging to your family.



In today’s post, I am addressin...

How To Get Your Kids Ready For Their New School In Mt. Pleasant

Moving with kids can be equal parts exciting, fun, stressful, and anxiety-inducing. Am I right?



One of the biggest causes of both excitement and anxiety for children during a move is wondering what life will be like for them at school. School is such a massive part of their day to day life and not knowing what it will be like, coupled with having to move away from the friends that they have already made is a lot for kids to process. Not to mention, there is the stress that they really didn’t get much of a say in this move to begin with.



I hate to see families struggle with this portion of their move to Mount Pleasant, so today I am sharing my best tips for helping your kids adjust t...

Okay, so if they are still crawling or toddling around, this one probably isn’t going to help you. But if your kids are old enough to participate in light chores then there is no reason that they shouldn’t be involved in your move. In fact, studies show that the more you involve your children in this process, the easier it will be for them to adjust.



Talk about a win-win!



Of course, getting your kids to participate in the move is easier said than done. Especially, if the kids are a little less than thrilled that you’re moving in the first place. So today, I am unleashing a few sanity-saving tips to get your kids to pitch in on your move. Please pay it forward to other par...
