Valentine’s Day Sneaks Up On The Best Of Us

images (11)Here’s just a few tips on how to make the best of a move during Valentine’s Day:

1. There’s Nothing More Romantic than Candlelit Dinner on the Floor, Really

Romantics are suckers for this one and when you’re moving into a new place the “table has already been set” for this romantic gesture. Movies and TV shows have been delivering this scene for decades – a couple moves into a humble new place, they have no lofty possessions other than their love for one another, and one surprises the other with candles strategically placed on the hardwood floor as they sit face to face on a picnic blanket and dine on take-out. Get into your new place early to set the stage and host a romantic candlelight dinner on the floor before unpacking a thing.

2. Hide a Gift in One of the Moving Boxes

Even though you are in the middle of a hectic relocation that is no excuse to skip the Valentine’s Day gift giving. Pretend that you forgot or simply did not have the time to get anything all the while smirking to yourself because within one of the boxes marked “FRAGILE” you have placed a retail token of your affection in one of the moving boxes. Ask the recipient to fetch something from the box and watch them saunter over in an irritated (because you “forgot” Valentine’s Day) manner only to be surprised when peeling back the cardboard flap. You’re in good graces for weeks after that.

No matter how well you’ve packed and planned for the day of the relocation you will still be neck deep in moving boxes, unless you consider this option. Secure a convenient storage locker located near your new abode and stuff the non-essentials within for the remainder of the month (at least) so that moving day (Feb 14th) is free and clear for you and your loved one to enjoy without being surrounded by boxes and odds & ends.

4. Give the Gift of Professional Movers

While securing storage will relieve much of your Valentine’s Day relocation concern, nothing will do the job quite like bringing in a professional mover to take on the bulk of the job. By having a professional mover as your official Valentine’s Day moving “concierge” you two can escape to dinner and a movie soon after taking possession of your new home.

We hope that his arrow finds the way into the heart of your loved one as you work Valentine’s Day magic into your move. If you have decided to follow our advice above then follow your heart and contact East Coast Moving LLC today to take care of your up and coming household move.

It’s Only Tuesday…

It's Only Tuesday...

No one likes Mondays, but today is Tuesday, and Diesel is not feeling 100% today. This is the season for allergies and sinuses to flare up and knock down anyone who isn’t power chugging gallons of orange juice while sporting their free “I got my flu shot” sticker. If you’re aren’t doing any of those things then these helpful tips might be able to help you through the season. (Maybe not Diesel. He is probably just going to sleep if off. Yep, currently sleeping if off in the same spot.)

-Two glasses of Gatorade can rid you of headache pains almost immediately, without all the side effect of common pain relievers.

-Those curiously strong little Altoids in your purse, car, junk drawer, etc have real peppermint oil in them and chewing on them can quickly clear up your sinuses.

-By mixing 1/4 cup of vinegar and 1/4 cup of honey, and taking six spoonfuls a day, you can get rid of a sore throat. (Yes vinegar, it kills the bacteria).

-Get warm the old fashioned way, break out the thermal long-johns before cranking up the heat. When you turn the heat up in your home it dries out the membranes in your nose and throat making your body produce even more of that stuffy mucus. (The same applies to smoke).

-When push comes to shove it might be inconvenient but sometimes it’s better to suck it up and go to the doctor, be mindful of your co-workers, friends, and family. No one wants to be sick, but it’s worse when someone else gets you sick.

Lastly, when all else fails, sleep and hydration are key, just ask Diesel.
