Stressed About Your Upcoming Move? Don’t Worry, There’s an App For That!

Although the prospect of a move to a new home can be exciting, the reality is that the actual move itself can be a chore. The process can oftentimes seem like an endless list of items to do – and just as soon as you get one task checked off, there are two more that appear!

Thanks to the ease and convenience of the online world, though, there are some “move planning” apps that can help you with narrowing down the monumental task of moving and cutting it into easy-to-digest bite sized pieces.
