What Do You Need To Do Before You Move Out?

Here's what experts recommend:


If you are dreaming about moving out of your old home to a new one, you came to the right place because Matco Moving Solutions has all the answers for you.

There are a few simple ways to make your moving process much easier.

To begin with, you need to be more organized. Here's what experts recommend:

  • Preparations for the move should begin at least one month before the day of the moving.
  • Do not start the whole process and rely only on friends and relatives, no matter how much they "voluntarily" offer to help you. It's too much work without professionals and you don't want to make a mess.
  • Moving out should be considered as a great opportunity to get rid of everything you do not need (old furniture, old clothes, whatever you did not need a minimum of 2 years and is located in the house, broken toys, all those little things that you have over the years received as gifts, and you do not like them).

Therefore, throw, throw and throw!

To make sure everything goes smoothly you need to make some important preparations such as:

  • As soon as you decide to start moving you need to buy some boxes, but if you hire a professional moving company you won't have to worry about that. These boxes and packing bags for your clothes can be purchased from every medium sized store.
  • Buy at least 20 pieces of wide brown sticky tape, a width of 5-7 cm (this is not an ordinary tape).
  • Gather all the materials you will need (newspapers, scissors, cloth, cardboard, sponges, vacuum foil,etc.).
  • Put an adhesive tape on the bottom of each box.
  • Put the plates in plastic bags and put a piece of newspaper between each plate.
  • Pack the electronic devices in the original box (if possible).
  • Make a secure copy (back up) all the important data from the hard disk.
  • Do not put too many things in the boxes.
  • Put numbers on the boxes, each in a different color, in order to determine in which room, you need to put each of the boxes (e.g.: living room-black, kitchen-red, bedroom-green, cabinet-blue, etc.).
  • Prepare the things you will need in the first few days and keep them handy such as personal documents (passport, identity card, birth certificate, workbook.)
  • Make a plan about the furniture in the new home. Draw a sketch of the schedule so that the furniture is entered immediately in the corresponding room.
  • Provide space for parking the truck in front of the object and inform the neighbors about the moving.
  • Identify any damage to your furniture and take the necessary measures to prevent further damage.

These are some of the most important things you need to consider before you start with the moving process. It is important to be prepared if you want everything to be in its own order.

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Forever my number one guy.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.

7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

The yearning for a place and people beyond the reach of my fingertips.


For those born and raised outside the borders of the United States, have you ever found yourself going about your daily life and thinking back to your home-county? With all of your favorite and most vivid memories rushing in without much warning, sending you on a rollercoaster of emotion. The ups, the downs, the everything in-between. The life you used to live is now playing itself back in front of your very eyes, and I can't help but feel homesick.

No matter how many years are now separating me from the time I lived in my home country, I will always feel saddened knowing I no longer live there. Yes, I have lived in the United States for more than half of my life, occasionally flying back home to visit family, and yet I always feel as if a small part of me remains on the other side of the world. That small part is what makes me yearn to fly back home-and stay there-, to be reunited with all of my family, and to be surrounded by the language of my people. I miss the way the food tastes; how tap water is better than any bottled water I've had in the states. How the mountains surrounding the city always make for a beautiful view no matter where I'm standing. I miss the guitar players and dancers who light up the city streets with culture and character. Most of all, I miss how much joy I find around me, and within me, when I am back home. There is something indescribable, almost magical, in the way my soul reacts when I step foot off that plane and back into my roots. It's as if the Earth itself grabs hold of me, and brings me close into a tight embrace. As if my home missed me just as much as I missed it. Whether I've been gone for eight years, or two, the unfamiliar quickly becomes familiar, and it feels like I never left. Like I can ask for a refund on my roundtrip flight because I have no desire to fly back to the states.

I feel homesick at the most random times. I could be out with my friends or buried deep in homework, but the memories of home will always find themselves back to me. I get sad for a little while, and it sucks that I cannot snap my fingers and find myself back home in an instant. Nevertheless, I reminisce on the good times and send a prayer up into the skies so I can go back home once more.
